Multiple languages

To the team: I learn Italian (base English) and added French and Spanish (base German) now. This was easy, and the points were counted accumulative for the day. However, in the course list my Italian course vanished, and I had to "add" it again (then I got back to the English base, and my French and Spanish courses are not visible). The subscriptions are shown in the discussion list, and you can of course go back to the "all courses" to get in, but it would be nice to just switch in the menu. Also, maybe you could invent a little toy for multi language-learners, for example as a treat in the lingot store, to compare languages, say translate the same sentence from English into Spanish AND Italian, or pick the right translation from similar words in close languages... I tend to mix them up, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. When do we get Arabic for English speakers? I'm sure there is special need for that, considering the increasing refugee problem. Thanks for working on Duolingo!

I'm having the same problem. I'm base English for most, but Catalan is only available as base Spanish, so it doesn't show up when I'm set to English.
