I Will Teach You a Language – Uncovered Series

Spanish Uncovered (and the similar German, French, Japanese and Italian courses) come from Olly Richards, the creator of the super-popular blog I Will Teach You A Language. It’s quite a bit different than most courses as it revolves around a story. It can be a bit more challenging than other courses, as you begin reading somewhat long texts right off the bat. Overall, I found it to be a more fun way to approach language learning that will be great for some but not ideal for others.

Dates: November 23rd – December 1st (23:59 PST)

Chinese Zero to HeroChinese Zero to Hero! is an online course for learning Chinese.

I like Chinese Zero to Hero! a lot. Their courses cover HSK1-6 (and more) of the HSK Standard Course textbooks. While it’s not in-depth enough to be the only resource you use, few courses are. It’s a great option for those looking to add structure into their independent study routine or are preparing for the HSK tests. It isn’t meant to be a replacement for a textbook, but those with textbook phobia would really benefit from this course.

Mondly is a popular language-learning platform that’s fairly similar to apps like Babbel, Busuu, Mango Languages, and others. Although we wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for learning popular languages, like Spanish, it could be a good option for some of the less commonly taught languages that don’t have as many resources available.

Coupon Code: None

Dates: Now – November 30th at 11:59 PM

Languages: 41 languages available

Details: Lifetime access to all 41 languages for $89.99
