It seems that I have a second account.
My mother tongue is German, so obviously there is (at the moment) only one course I can enroll, which is German -> English.
However, I already have a certain level of English and I just want to maintain or even learn a few new words.
So I started to learn other languages from English.
Now my problem is that in my profile I only see the languages which I learn from English and if I switch to the German -> English course I only see the English course.
Has anybody else these problems? (In addition it is very complicated to switch between the courses)
Hi, Yes this is 'normal', and has been mentioned a couple of times here. It is a bit tedious to always switch back between the settings, but at the moment that is the only way it can be done. A lot of people that do their 'reverse trees' (e.g. spanish to english when you are actually learning english to spanish) have the same problem. I think DL staff knows about it from previous discussions but I am not sure it is currently on their priority list (just my guess) :-)
Same here. I'm German too, started wth the English-> German/French/Italian courses, switched to German--> English for fun and started French-->English two weeks ago. All in all it now seems like I have 3 accounts, since I have to switch between certain settings to get to a different course. I hope Duolingo will change this, since all that switching takes a bit of the fun out of it...^^;
It's not a separate account, just another part of the same account. The "X from German" part is separated from the "X from English" part, but when you switch, nothing is deleted.
I enrolled for reverse trees and found my regular trees had vanished. After recovering my regular trees (English to French+German) I find I can no longer see the reverse trees. Perhaps I'll wait until this is sorted out before proceeding as I don't want to lose anything I've already done.
You don't lose anything. It's still there, you just can't see it when you've changed your language settings. I constantly change back and forth as I practice my skills in the English --> Spanish tree I already completed, while also doing new lessons in the Spanish --> English tree.
