Can you make a unified profile?

I am taking some courses as an Arabic speaker and other courses as an English speaker . The problem is I can't switch between them easily without going to the list of all courses select the language I speak like Arabic /English then add a course (which I already started) after doing this the profile will switch back to the list in the new selected language. I think you should add an option to allow me to add more than speaking language ( like I can speak English and Arabic), and separate the display language from the speaking language really and seriously this is a serious design problem if you ask me.

Best regards, Mohessaid

You can use the Duolingo Language Switcher userscript to quickly switch between base languages: https://github.com/arekolek/DuolingoCourseSwitcher

Thank you, I will use it at the moment but they need to update their system as well.

I agree, userscripts are meant to be temporary patches until duolingo adds the feature. though I personally don't think they will add it soon.

Me neither since their are various easy and quick workarounds. So they'll very likely prefer dedicate their time to other issues/features/bugs.

Yes you can. There are several ways (to "setup") to do that, see here.
The simplest one is to create (in your favorite browser) a bookmark folder "Duo" then put inside one bookmark to the course page of each of the course you follow.


Update [2017/05/02]: here a script allowing an easy and quick Switch between courses.
