I started All Language Resources because I was trying to figure out which resources I should use for studying Chinese and it was far more difficult than it needed to be. There are tons of different courses, apps, podcasts, websites and so on, but it was hard to figure out which ones I should actually spend my time (and sometimes money) to use.
Nearly every website I came across that had reviews or recommendations felt dishonest. And, the longer I’ve been running this site, the more I realize just how shady many of these other websites can be.
There are lots of really cool resources for language learners online with more coming out constantly. There are also some insanely overpriced resources that aren’t as good as free alternatives. But because many people earn money by referring others to these overpriced and poor-quality resources, those are the ones that you constantly hear about.
My goal with this site is to always recommend the best resource, regardless of whether or not I can make money from referrals. There are far too many sites that rate every resource as a 9.5/10 or higher. Thus far, after having reviewed around 50 resources, the average rating on All Language Resources is around a 7.5/10.
Not only that, far too often I read an article or a review and end up learning hardly anything about what it’s like to actually use that resource. My goal is that every post on this site will be the most in-depth and honest one that you’ll find.
I hope you find this site helpful. If ever you disagree with me or know of a cool tool that I haven’t mentioned, please let me know.
