English to German and German to Spanish. Can they be taken at the same time?

A bit of a conundrum...

I'm taking the English to German course right now and I've recently decided to add Spanish as well. I want to know if it's possible to take the German to Spanish course instead of the English to Spanish.

I tried to start the German to Spanish but it took away my English to German course (and gave me a mini-heartattack until I found a way to fix it). Anyone know if it's possible to do?

Thanks a ton!

It's not "taking away", it's just that when studying from German then all the interface is in German and you see only (all) the course you're studying from German.
If you go back to the English interface (by going back to any course from English) then you'll see back (and only) all your courses from English.

SO, yes, you can study as many courses (from as many languages) you want at the same time. As long as the course is already offered by Duo, of course.

So, for clarification, I can study as many courses from as many languages as I want, with out it at all resetting or otherwise harming any of them?

Also, how does one switch interfaces?

Yes.

how does one switch interfaces?

By changing the course you're currently taking.
See here for various methods to switch between courses.


Update [2017/05/02]: here a script allowing an easy and quick Switch between courses.

Thank you very much.

Is it possible to do that from the app version of the site, or more of a pc only type of thing?

Going to the settings in the app, you should be able to change courses.
