Toucan is a browser extension that reads the web pages as you surf and automatically changes some words into the language of your choice. With hover tips on the words themselves, in-browser games, and more, you’ll be learning new words in no time.

Duolingo has some very well done podcasts that incorporate Spanish and English in a nice balance so even if you don’t catch everything, you’ll be able to understand it. Even better with apps like Stitcher, you can slow down or speed up the podcast based on your skill level.
