Yolango is a new site for English Language Learners. I think it’s very engaging — both in concept and execution. There are a large number of captioned videos, divided by levels, with a bunch of fun activities that users do with them to promote language-learning. With just a few exceptions, the videos on the site are excellent choices.

However, those few exceptions are, in my eyes at least, enough to unfortunately preclude me from putting the link on my website or recommending the site for classroom use. If they were just a little more careful in the video selection, there’s no doubt in my mind that Yolango would end-up on one of my “The Best…” lists.

But having their otherwise exceptional video collection marred with one entitled “Eating Better For Sex” and another one showing a beer commercial ruins it for me.   I’ll check the site again in the future to see if they revise the criteria for videos and share what I find.
