(Sorry for the vague tongue twister title I couldn't come up with something clearer)

If you start studying languages for English speakers (for example) and then wanted to add languages for, say, Spanish speakers would you need a separate account with Spanish as the main the language? or can it be done from one account?

For example, if you are studying Swedish for English speakers then wanted to study Swedish for Spanish speakers can that be from the same account?

You can use the same account , what happens is that you need to change for the other language when you want to study it, because they don't stay all together, but you don't lose anything.

You can use this and you won't have to change your settings at all. I've been using it for ages and have had no problems with it. Just follow the instructions on the page, it shouldn't be too hard to install. c: https://github.com/arekolek/DuolingoCourseSwitcher

I have a question, I did as exactly as the website say and it works. But once I close the window and open it back later it goes back to normal like before, is this a problem or it is like that?

I think that's a problem, that's never happened to me. o_o Maybe try re-installing it and see what happens, because it should work regardless of when you close your browser.

I have one more question right now I have several language list when I put my mouse on my picture, Spanish for English, English and Catalan for Spanish and English for Indonesian, but I no longer want to do English for Indonesian, so how can I remove it from the list I mean when I put my mouse on my picture it only shows English and Spanish instead of English, Spanish and Indonesian. I went to the Indonesian menu and I cannot remove it.

Once you have added a source language, you always have that source language. It will always have one target language from it.

For many languages there is only English as a target language - so it cannot be removed. All you can do is reset it.

If you have other target languages then you can remove English, but only if you add a different target language.
