How do I turn off this awful background music ??
I've just discovered that it was music from facebook that was still playing on another tab . Feeling really silly at the moment ....but thank you :)
i give you lingots
Thank you! I didn't have any other tabs open but discovered the music was from a program that I didn't even realise was open. It was driving me mad! You have saved my sanity.
If you are talking about the sound effect after a lesson, you can turn them off in the settings menu (gear symbol).
People have been asking about background music before. There really isn't any: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/767768
