Switching native language

Hi there!

I switched from learning French from English to learning French from Spanish and I realized I have to start from scratch. Did you plan it like that or is it a bug?

Thanks and regards.

Hi jmchuma! Don't worry! Your French from English progress is still there - you'll see it again if you switch back. However, if you now want to do French from Spanish, your French level from English will be combined with your from Spanish level - you'll only have one French level. But your tree will not be combined. You can take a placement test if you want to skip some lessons in Spanish.

A word of caution - if you delete your French from English it will delete your French from Spanish as well and vice versa.

Happy Duolingoing! :)
