2 courses at once

Good Afternoon,

I have a technical question about Duolingo. I have been studying swedish for english speakers and I ended the tree a couple of months ago, since then I have been refreshing lessons. Now I want to begin with the course of esperanto for spanish speakers but doing everyday lessons of swedish to keep it fresh.

However, to change between both courses I have to go to "add a new course", go to the list of courses and select the one I want to practice. It is a bit tedious doing it over and over. Is there a more simple way to change between courses?

Thank you very much.

I have the same problem. To my knowledge, it's impossible to quickly switch between two different base languages without going through there. The only solution there really is to avoid doing that is to have two different accounts, but it isn't that convenient.

This use of two accounts could be made more convenient by having them both signed in on different browsers. The browsers will each remember the different login, so it should be as simple as opening the browser and navigating to Duolingo. :)

That's odd. I just hover over the flag icon to change courses. Like this:

Doesn't that work for you?

If you are changing between base languages it takes a few extra steps or a userscript.

Yeah. I pretty much wound up abandoning my other base language courses on duo because they are out of sight, out of mind.

Sadly, the only way to go through is the tedious way :c

As Wildsage has briefly mentioned, there is the possibility of using userscripts. The Google Chrome browser, and the Mozilla Firefox browser, can both run a userscript add-on/plug-in. Such add-ons allow users to write or download their own programs/scripts (userscripts) to run on an existing webpage. These scripts can add extra functionality to a webpage. The add-on is either TamperMonkey for Chrome, or GreaseMonkey for Firefox.

The unofficial Duolingo wiki has a list of userscripts written by users of Duolingo: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Duolingo_Userscripts Note that the page is headed by a warning.

About 8 down the list is Language Course Switcher (Improved). I do not use userscripts, so this is not a personal recommendation, just information should you wish to look into it for yourself.

If anyone who uses it wishes to comment on their experiences with it, please feel free. As far as I recall, all comments which I have seen about it, have been very positive.
