English for Czech speakers for duolingo classroom

Hi, is it possible to make a class for Czech learners of English - all I get when I create a classroom as an English teacher is English for Spanish speaking folks. Is it please possible to change to Czech for English speakers?

Hello! You can check out all current and upcoming language courses here. Select the language you want to learn from on the top right drop-down list. More courses are constantly being added, so please keep an eye on that page and ask to be notified when they are ready to try. :]

It appears English for Czech speakers is available here: https://www.duolingo.com/courses/cs so you should be able to create a classroom for your students. When you create your classroom, English should be an option on the drop-down menu. Let us know if you experience problems.

Thank you for your feedback. I know about the English course for Czech speakers. However, when I create the classroom, I am only asked which language I teach, which is English. When I choose this option I am not asked what language I want to tech i from and am automatically redirected to an English classroom for Spanish speakers. In classroom settings, there is a drop-down menu asking which language I teach, not which language I teach it "from".

I see. Can you try changing your Duolingo interface language to Czech, creating an English classroom that way, and then switching your language back? I think that might work, and you'd only need to do it once. Duolingo assumes you are learning from the language of the interface, and since we do not offer English>English courses, it must have selected Spanish. Please let me know if that works. :]

Oh, I see, this didn't occur to me! When I switched my language to Czech on the courses I study, it worked so now I can create the classroom of English for Czech speakers. Thank you very much!

You're welcome, I'm glad it worked! :] You should be able to switch the language back after the classroom is created.
