Deleting a Classroom

I created a classroom to see what it was like, how do I delete it?

June 21, 2016



From your My classrooms page, click on the grey cog at the top right corner, and choose classroom settings. There's a link in there labelled delete this classroom.


I want to delete it because I would like to create an account to use my French as the root language, and it says my email is already taken...with my classroom.


Emails are taken by accounts, not classrooms, I am not sure what you mean by that. Let us know if you have any more trouble.


I was not able to change my email by deleting my classroom. Could you give more guidance?


You're confusing two different things. As Vivisaurus says, your account and your classroom are two different things.

  • If you want to delete your classroom, then use the instructions I've posted above.

  • If you want to change your email address, click on your username at the top of the screen, and choose settings.

  • If you want to learn a language using Duolingo, don't create a new account, just click on duolingo at the top left of the page, and start using the course.


I am not able to change my email. I have tried several times but it never saves, and I've tried reloading the page but it never works.

Last time I tried to use French as my root language, it deleted my languages and switched everything to French.

Thank you all for your help, I will try again.


There's an ongoing problem with the interface. When you switch your home language, you only see the courses you're using from that home language. When you switch your home language back again, all your courses will be right where you left them.

I don't know what's going on with your email, though - does it give you an error message?


i do not know but when you find out tell me because i need the same


Will it add my new languages to the app?


If you sign into the same account with the app and the website, you'll have access to the same courses, and it will keep everything nice and synchronised for you.


I've now figured it out...


I would like to delete a classroom, so I can track my students' weekly progress all in one place. I have deleted it by clicking on the gear button before, but now when I click on the gear button delete is not an option. Has it changed?
