Today is Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Want to brush up on your Spanish or German without sacrificing precious movie-watching time? Look no further than Netflix.

A new Google Chrome extension lets users combine Netflix and language studies by letting users watch with two sets of subtitles. The extension, Language Learning with Netflix, doesn’t just show two sets of subtitles – it lets users select their skill level and gray out more difficult words. 

The extension lets users take advantage of Netflix’s extensive language catalogue, The Verge reported. It includes Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

Users can also change the dialogue speed and even play it back to pick up on phrases and vocabulary.

A catalogue is also available from Language Learning with Netflix to help users pick the best movies.
