Toucan is a new, immersive way to learn while you go about your daily life.

Learning a new language is challenging, fun, and rewarding. It also takes time, practice, and dedication – finding a few extra minutes in the day can feel impossible.

At Toucan, they know creating a new habit is one of the most difficult things to do. Their Founding team has a deep understanding and appreciation for human habits, behavior, and the science of learning. Their free Chrome extension helps you learn without having to put aside time to create a new habit. Toucan works by immersing you in the language while you’re browsing the web. What’s even better is that you’ll see those words in the context of sentences – helping your brain connect the word to its useful meaning.

Taylor and her team created Toucan to help people make more use of their time, without missing out on the fun and satisfaction of learning a new language.
