Unpleasant to switch from one language to another when you are already bilingual!

  • 1059

Hello Duolingo,

I learned German from English for a while, and now I'm slowly starting Spanish from French.

Since the reference language isn't the same (English vs. French), I can't switch easily from one course to another. For example, If I'm on the German course, I need to act like I'd like to start learning a new language and select "Spanish from French".

Is there any plan on developing this missing feature?

I started German from English a long time ago and (I'm native french) German from French wasn't available at that time!

There were two solutions offered for this issue yesterday.

If you are running Windows 10, using the Duolingo app to create shortcuts for your different language pairs might be the simplest solution.

Thanks to you both for your suggestions. And indeed, I realized that there is a userscript that is already making life easier on the web app... but I'm mostly using the mobile app. Hence, I believe my request is still legit. :p

A slightly faster method will be

If you are fine with using scripts, there are a couple of userscripts available on the Duolingo wiki page which help make language change smoother.
