You were doing a Spanish–English lesson with a German interface? If that (interface language different to the “learning from” language) is a feature of the mobile app, then that’s something I’d like to see on the standard website too.

Unifying this experience is definitely in our plans.

Personally, I'd like to see my mobile app switch interface languages when I switch. When I log out and switch to a different account to let a student's parent use it to help them learn English, they're having a hard time because the interface is still in English.

Yes, the mobile app seems to use the system language. I have the German interface too, without ever having chosen German as a base language.

That actually kinda sucks then, if you can't chose. I hate when websites or apps chose what I want for me, because most of the time they get it wrong. Like IMDb translating all movie titles to German for me when I'm trying to find out the English name of a movie to watch it on Netflix -.-

I know the problem, but the solution is pretty easy: Look up the movie in the German Wikipedia - in the upper right corner you'll normally find the original title. Otherwise just click on "English" on the left side, so you'll get to the English article, named after - right, the original title. ;-) But if you want to be treated as a citizen of UK/USA/whatnot, you can use a proxy server. There are some available as add-ons for several browsers, I personally recommend "Zenmate" for Browsers based on the Chromium engine (such as Google Chrome or SRWare Iron). With this, you can choose what the internet thinks which nationality you're of.

Hm, I'm more of a firefox person. I know of the wikipedia trick, ofc, it's what I usually do. It's just more of a general annoyance that IMDb doesn't let me chose (without using a proxy that is)

You have SO many languages. Are those, like, ALL languages?

I hope they allow us to choose the interface language on the website soon! That would be soooooooo cool! :D
