Viki's "Learn Mode" makes it easy to stop the show and catch up

Viki, an online streaming service of popular Asian dramas, has recently debuted a  new feature called “Learn Mode” for viewers who are studying either Korean or Chinese.

When activated, interactive subtitles appear in both the native and target languages, allowing viewers to stop and repeat the show line by line. The service also makes each word clickable, offering quick definitions for unfamiliar words. Furthermore, Learn Mode automatically stops the program whenever the viewer hovers over the subtitles, allowing the reader to rewind line by line to be able to more quickly find the precise line they are seeking.

The service is currently limited, with only a few shows across two languages being supported. However, the shows that do use Learn Mode like “Boys Over Flowers” and “My Love From The Star,” are generally popular and well-regarded among drama fans.

For only $4.99 a month, Learn Mode offers a unique and fun new way to try and learn the vocabulary of a different language.
