The Fleex platform will make it simple for television lovers to learn English. The French startup company has recently partnered with the Popcorn Time network, merging one's favorite streamed shows and content with the display of English subtitles.

What separates Fleex from other language acquisition programs is its combination of English linguistic information with native subtitles. For instance, if you are from Germany, German subtitles will be paired with English subtitles. As one progresses, the German explanations will be continuously scaled back.

On top of being relatively easy to use, Fleex is also interactive. While watching shows, movies or even TED talks, users can pause the reel and search for definitions of specific words. Expressions and idioms are also apart of the educational tool.
