hi guys

Is it possible to learn more than one language on one account or do you have to open a new one?

A question that is frequently asked and a caution:

Why is this course upping my levels in another course? The levels are based strictly on target language, not the starting one. So that means, for example, if you are learning French from English, you have a single French level, regardless of the language you learn it from.

What that also means is that if you delete or reset a course, if you have another course with the same *target* language, it will reset that course as well. Again, because you have a single French/target level, regardless of the language you learn it from and are resetting it.

Yes, you can learn more than one language on the same account.

Just hover over the flag icon by your username in the top right corner, and choose which language you'd like to add.

If you are learning both languages from the same base language you only need one account. I am revising French and learning Italian from the same account (my starting language is English). However I have a French friend who is revising English from French and has just started learning Italian. As there is no French - Italian section yet she had to create a new account and start Italian from the base language of English.

Your friend shouldn't have to make a new account, you can hover over the flag and click "more" that will take you to the settings page, which gives you the option to change base language etc. as well.

PS. Don't be surprised when it looks like you've lost your other scores, they disappear until you change it back to the base language you got those scores in. But they are still there!

You can go to your settings and change your "language learning" to be in your target language to do this without creating another account. For instance my account currently says "I want to learn French". If I go and change it to "Je veux aprendre l'anglais. (Je parle francais)" I can learn english or any other language a french speaking person can learn. To revert back, just go back to the settings and change it back to "I want to learn french" or whatever language you want to learn from english.

By the way: your english speaking language trees disappear while your in the other language. You can restore them though by reverting back. You don't lose them.
