StudyStream utilizes several features toward the goal of delivering an integrated learning experience:

  • Read along while watching videos with text that is highlighted as it is spoken to learn what it is being said and improve your listening skills.
  • Sentence-by-sentence playback allows you to listen to a sentence as many times as you like.
  • A translation is displayed side-by-side with the original text (limited availability).
  • Instantly get the meaning of unknown words and phrases with pop-ups.

StudyStream creates exercises based on your personal study habits to help improve your memory, increase your listening comprehension, and deepen your understanding of the language you are learning.

StudyStream, currently in beta, lets you study the following languages: Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese, and English. More languages are promised for the future. StudyStream works best for learners whose native language is English, Spanish, or Japanese.
