Switching language on keyboard
I clicked the link provided to switch my keyboard language but it seems to only be instructions for touchscreens. I am on a laptop. How do I change my language to Russian when I am using Duolingo for the Russian course then back to English after? Thank you in advance for your help.
I haven't added a new language in a while and I don't have Windows 7 anymore, but try going into settings. Then click 'time and language', then 'Region and language', then 'add a language'. Then when you find Russian, it'll give you some options on what kind of keyboard to install: phonetic, traditional etc. Choose whichever one you like and good luck learning Russian! :)
By the way, if you haven't noticed it yet, there is a small Аа-Яя switch near the top left of the screen during a lesson. You need to click that unless you want everything to be in Latin letters.
If you have problems with the switching between keyboards, you can use this Google Chrome Duolingo Keyboard Extension:
If you install the extension, when you're doing a Duolingo exercise, you can keep your keyboard in English and when you do a lesson, the key you press will output the mapped value in the Cyrillic alphabet.
I've been using this extension for several months, and I want to say that it's really great!
