English for the Russian speakers

Hey, I don't know if there is such a topic about it but I couldn't find it myself. I'm setting up a classroom, and it's English for Russians. When Duolingo asks me about a language I want to teach I choose English, but it's English for the Spanish speakers by default, and my question is whether it's possible to set Russian instead.

Thanks in advance

Yes! When a few students join the classroom with that language selected, it should be automatically changed to the correct language. Check this out. This probably happened because your Duolingo is in English and you are teaching English. Since the system doesn't know what you are teaching from, it defaults to a language such as Spanish (this will change and we will soon give you the option of manually setting the student language). I hope it helps! :]

Yes! Thanks for a quick response and a clear answer! Yeah, I should give it a try then, and only after a I send the invitations to the students I'll see if it works or not. But I have no doubts it is so! Thanks a lot :)
