How do I use Learn Mode?

Learn Mode is an innovative feature to facilitate language learning. It is available for Korean, Chinese, Japanese & Taiwanese titles that have at least 50% subtitles in the origin language.

Learn Mode is available on web browsers and the iOS app only. 

Note: Chinese subtitles available for Chinese and Taiwanese content are Simplified Chinese. We're looking to have Traditional Chinese available in the future.
