Shouldn't it be correct if you said this too: This will help you learn linguistics?

No, that's missing the over(about) in the Dutch sentence.

hmm, interesting. So would you be able to say: Dit zal jou helpen taalkunde te leren?

No. But I also missunderstood the sentence at first. The over is just "about" as in: Ik leer over taalkunde. (I learn about linguistics.), it doesn't belong to helpen. I think you can say helpen om over taalkunde te leren, though. But I'm not sure, as I'm only a native speaker of German. There it'd work.
