Tutorial menu item - unfortunate implementation

Start Emacs 21.2.1 in its own X window.

In the menu bar, click "Help" -> "Emacs Tutorial (choose language)...".

Now the minibuffer says "Language: " and Emacs is as helpful
as a silent sage.

Is that appropriate for the type of user who would click on that
menu item?  User must guess there's a string for him to enter,
must guess the right string (or be rewarded with "[no match]"),
or type `?' or `TAB' first by some lucky impulse.

I think it would suffice to have the `*Completions*' buffer
appear automatically (without user pressing `TAB').  Luckily,
the `*Completions*' buffer is a clickable menu.
