Can I subscribe "from" two languages with one account?

I'm a native English speaker. I used to be fluent in German (many years ago in college). I'm currently learning Spanish (to assist staffing with the ManKind Project in Mexico). I'd like to be able to learn Spanish from BOTH English and German (to simultaneously brush up on my German a bit), but I don't see how to do that as a separate subscription. Is this possible? Do I need to create a totally separate/new account for the other "from" language? Thanks in advance! Jamie

You go to your icon and click oo to "Add a new language"; next you change your language to German; then you can click on the Spanish box and you will be able to study Spanish from German. To get back, you just reverse the process.

Thanks all. I did find that feature, but I was looking forward to starting over with German-to-Spanish (to collect the German I might have forgotten) and do them simultaneously but unlinked from each other. When I changed my language, I saw my previous progress from English was already there and there appeared to be no way to have a fresh start again from German. :-/

I find that if I forget to switch back to English, all my E-mails from Duo come to me in German. I don't know if there is a way to get a fresh start other than what you are doing. Try leaving your language as German; that might work.

I've had that happen too with a couple of languages (German was one.) Most of mine were not gold, however, they just showed some progress. Just go ahead and redo the lessons. Not quite as satisfying, somehow, but you do see everything.

Well I don't know what happened, but it now appears to be tracking me separately! I can change my language back and forth from English to German and I have two different Spanish tracks! The points and lingots are cumulative (which is fine/doesn't really matter that much to me), but I now appear to be able to go through the Spanish curriculum twice--one for each language--cool! I must have been doing something wrong originally. Thanks again for the input and suggestions, all! :-)

What's the ManKind Project?

Thanks for asking, Talca! The San Diego Area ManKind Project is currently supporting the development and expansion of the newly formed Mexico City ManKind Project community. From the mankindproject.org website:

"Building and supporting the emotionally mature, accountable, and compassionate male role models that our communities need.

This is men's community for the 21st Century.

The ManKind Project flies in the face of rigid stereotypes about the "Sensitive New Age Man" AND the "Macho Man". We ask men to go right up to the edge - and beyond - in a culture that seems to be comfortable with mediocrity and passivity from men. We ask men to stop living a vicarious adventure through their TV's and step into a real time adventure to win back their passion for life. We ask men to confront the real issues, to get 100% honest about who they are. Some men have a really hard time doing that. Many of us did too, but we took the risk anyway.

We're looking for men who want to be powerful Leaders and Role Models. Men willing to step through fear and into the challenge of their lives. Men not afraid to revolt against repressive social norms, take off their masks and break through their personal barriers. Men ready to take real risks and step into their full power. Men not afraid to inhabit ALL the characteristics required of men in changing times; resiliency, integrity, courage, creativity, innovation, adaptability, compassion, empathy, radical self-responsibility, inclusiveness, generosity and respect."

Yes, I'm stepping through my own fear of being a leader in a "foreign" country where I don't speak the language to support other--even braver--men who are stepping up to help grow and heal their own culture . . . and the planet. Personally, I think I'm up for that challenge, as my new brothers in Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries also need to bring this work to their families. This is also in support of my life's mission: "I co-create a world that is healed, by facilitating inner and world peace".
