Language Helpers Mini-Review: Too Automated

Language Helpers

Language Helpers provides a compilation of resources for various languages. Unfortunately, the organization of the site does not seem to have a lot of structure beyond the category headings.

If you search the free courses, you will be directed to a page with an assortment of YouTube videos in no particular order. At the top of this page, you’ll see a dropdown menu with a list of possible courses in your chosen language. However, these lists seem to have been automatically generated — you will find Spanish courses in the Italian section, and French courses in the German and Spanish sections (it’s also possible that the videos were automatically curated). There may be transcripts available for some videos, but most of them do not have one.

Besides the recommended courses section, all of the languages have an online translator, and some of them have basic word lists.

The creator of the site had good intentions to make language learning free, but the organization of the site seems more like a roulette game than structured learning courses.

The current rating is our best estimate. We haven’t had the opportunity yet to more thoroughly evaluate this resource, as we do for our full reviews.
