Stuck on "English from Spanish" in classroom

Hi,

I'm tutoring a Greek student in English and am planning to invite her to a classroom in Duolingo, so she can use it for review. The problem is, whenever I select English it defaults to English from Spanish when I want English from Greek. Is this available yet, and if so how do I switch? Thanks.

As soon as your student joins your classroom, the curriculum page will show the correct curriculum (English from Greek), so you can go ahead and invite her! :) The curriculum page tries to guess which English course your students are using - if no students have joined your classroom yet, it defaults to whichever English course is available from your (the teacher's) interface language. Since your interface language is English and there is no English from English course, the curriculum shows English for Spanish speakers, since that is the biggest English course on Duolingo.

As a workaround, if you'd like to see the curriculum before inviting your student, you could switch yourself to the Greek interface as described by @jbusike below. In that case, the curriculum should correctly show you the English from Greek course.

All of my classes default to Spanish for English speakers. I've setup each classroom for English for Korean speakers but when students join it's a Spanish course in English. So I'm testing classrooms using chrome browsers on multiple android devices and computers. I've made sure to clear cookies and tried in and out of incognito windows. Also I often get double or triple instances of students when they join a classroom. This really isn't workable for an educator.
