Why Language Tools?

It boils down to 3 reasons: Top-notch free tools, an abundance of qualified teachers, and a diverse and welcoming community.

The Reading Tool

Our leading-edge reading tool keeps you moving without breaking your rhythm. Come across a word or phrase you don’t understand? No problem!

Mouse-over dictionary

The built-in mouse-over dictionary lets you highlight anything you don’t understand and get a quick translation in context.

Stacked with features

Most pop-up dictionaries won’t give you definitions for phrases, don’t color code words that you’ve looked up before, and don’t keep statistics. Ours does all three.

Upload audio & import video

You can upload audio and import YouTube videos, too. (Sweet, right?)

104 languages

Oh, and it supports 104 languages, more than any other hosted reading tool available.

A Diverse and Welcoming Community

Our founder, Leo Smith, is a language learning enthusiast who created Language Tools as a way to give back to fellow language learners all across the world.

The Language Tools community is a group of like-minded people on a mission to learn new languages and experience new cultures. We are polyglots and dabblers, beginners and experts, learners and teachers. We are from multiple countries, time zones, and continents all across the world. We consider our geographic differences to be a benefit that broadens our perspective. We have a common goal – language acquisition with the support and encouragement of one another in that pursuit.

We envision a bustling website where fellow learners can pursue their language learning goals and interact with a global community. Language Tools was built with the sole intention of creating a platform where users anywhere can learn a language while having fun and making friends. Ultimately, we would like to see the Language Tools site managed entirely by our strong community of learners and teachers.

We give back

It gets better: we give back. All profits after operating expenses and development costs go to support our charity project in Tanzania, Africa: the Woyode school in Africa, an elementary school for the Masaai children.
