INTERNATIONAL EDUCATOR M AY + J U N.2019

THERE'S AN (OFFLINE) APP FOR THAT
In many parts of the world, the lack of an education
infrastructure, including inadequate internet access, is a
primary obstacle to education initiatives. In rural India-
where only half of the students who are enrolled in grade 5
education can confidently read a grade-2-level textbook-a
new app from Google is one solution.
In March, Google launched Bolo, a speech-based app
designed to be used offline to help Indian primary students
improve their English and Hindi reading skills, as well as
create and nurture a love of reading. A key feature is Diya, a
virtual buddy who encourages and assists children as they
improve their reading skills.
A pilot program that tested the app with around 1,500
children showed that after 3 months, 64 percent of children
saw an improvement in their reading proficiency.

Have suggestions on apps, extensions, and other tech products or
platforms that help students with language learning, studying abroad,
or navigating the international student experience? The
editors of International Educator would love to hear
about them. Send suggestions to editor@nafsa.org.

As of January 2019, Netflix
had more than 139 million paid
subscribers and offered programming
in more than 30 languages. A new
Google Chrome extension, launched
in December 2018, leverages this
content and allows Netflix users to
improve their foreign language skills
as they binge-watch.
Features of the Language Learning
with Netflix extension include:
* side-by-side subtitles, in the
language being learned and the
user's language of choice;
* choice of human- or machinegenerated translations for subtitles;
* a catalog of Netflix programming currently available in the
language the user wants to study;
* optional settings that automatically pause playback at the end
of every subtitled line or slow the
dialogue, allowing the user to read
and digest the translation;
* customized translation vocabulary,
based on proficiency level; and
* alternate definitions and
translations when the user hovers
over words in the subtitles.
As of press time, the extension had
more than 73,500 users.
