After installing the Google Dictionary Chrome extension all you need to do is double-click a word and it will quickly show the pronunciation, definition, and when available, the option to have the word spoken. Justin Cowen gives a good look at how it works with the video below.
Other useful options include the ability to store words that you have looked up for reference in the future. For those learning a new language, you can choose from a variety of languages to have instant translations.
