How to delete a language from your profile

If you want to remove a language course on Duolingo or reset your progress, there's a way!

Note: you must always have one course. You cannot remove a course if it is the only course you are learning.

Go to your settings page

Go to your "Language" page by selecting Learning Language from the menu on the right of the screen.

Click Reset or remove languages under the big blue "See all language courses" button.

Select "Reset Progress" (blue button) if you want to start the tree from the beginning. Select "Remove" (that's the big red button) if you want to remove the tree and any traces of it, such as the small flag next to your name or on your profile.

Please be aware that removing or resetting a course cannot be undone.

If you remove a language, you can always add it back later, but all your progress will be lost and you'll have to start the tree from the beginning.

I want to remove German from Spanish, but I can't. It is the last language in my Spanish profile. I am using the English profile. I wonder why Duo separates the profiles.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pratishtha1401

You can do it because that's what I just did 1) go to the desktop version of duoling 2)Open that another language course 3) Then go to settings from that another language interface 4) Click on remove languages/courses option 5) Now the main thing you will find that remove button is grey so instead you have to click on reset button to erase all the progress 6) Log out and open the app It will be removed Yes, you can thank me


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cuannas

For some reason, English is listed on my profile, even though I am a native speaker and I never signed up for the course. When I go into the profile settings, it does not appear on the list of languages and there is no way to remove it. Very confused...anyone else have this experience?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jarrettph

It happens when you learn English from another language. It's unfortunately impossible to remove.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cuannas

That sucks, but good to know I guess. Thanks.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jarrettph

I got stuck with it when I took the reverse Greek course. The problem is you must have at least one course from your chosen language.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pratishtha1401

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeonardoCa230463

So it's impossible to remove the English course? But why can I find people who don't have English course in their language list?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FieryCat

How can I delete the last item from this list? In that case the remove button is disabled. This can be useful if I accidentally started a course from a wrong language.

Thank you.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AgnyLeo

same problem. i've accidentally added english for speakers of russian, but i'm learning russian for speakers of english (i'm learning everything here for speakers of english; not russian)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sarah-NC

Similar problem here. I let a Spanish speaking friend try out the English course for Spanish speakers using my account. Now I can't get it off. I have other languages on my account, but it looks like this one is counted separately since the others are for English speakers and this one isn't.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jarrettph

Exactly! This is a major annoyance.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nick_Barrow

Well, I did English for French speakers, for practice, and I got it off.


[deactivated user]

    Press reset, then go to another course. It’ll disappear.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anneysha7

    Like mentioned, you cannot delete the last language from the list. One way to delete the 'last language' is by adding another language to the list and then deleting the language to be deleted. :)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TatoMaster23

    I don't have a remove button at all


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AgataRy

    Ok and What do I do if I don't have any remove button?? I have six courses and I want to get rid of it.... Bug, bug everywhere :(((


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pokhriyalvishnu

    are you doing it in the website?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FieryCat

    It looks like a crutch.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/arabillie

    If a language is reset, will purchased topics (Idioms, etc.) still be there? Reset, obviously, but you wouldn't have to buy them again, right?


    [deactivated user]

      Yes. The progress on them will be wiped, but the will be there if you come back.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Leillia

      I tried to delete French (from Italian) but it didn't work. I added another course from Italian (English) so I would be able to delete that one. But it's still there!!! Why??? It's not on the drop down menu anymore or showing up in these icons by my name, but it is still on my profile.... WHY???? Also, the English from Italian isn't showing up. :(


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jeli.fish

      I'm somehow in a language course I never joined, and now I can't remove it. The "remove" button is disabled and when I click "Reset progress", the page refreshes and the course is still there.

      How do I get rid of it? The course is English for Chinese speakers btw.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jeli.fish

      I know the English icon isn't appearing here, but when I switch between language courses on my laptop, the English course is still there.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Odinson33

      I just leave my message here but... what use are the Lingots these days when you can not buy a quiz or test anymore ?? It was a good way of practise, it is a shame.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TatoMaster23

      I want to remove Spanish and German from my list but it doesn't work. When I tried the Reset or remove languages button link above, I was taken to an error page.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/oijhnbgvfnjn

      Same thing happens to me. Maybe its a bug? We should try telling duolingo about it


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AgataRy

      I've already emailed them, we'll see what happens!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/juuzous_jason

      same happens to me, there is no button maybe is a error from Duolingo's page?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gina662993

      I still have not been able to remove a language course. Can you make tis easier to do? Thank you!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      I still have not been able to remove a language course.

      Which one? Spanish for English speakers or Swedish for English speakers?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jarrettph

      We need a way to delete courses from different target languages if we already have other courses from other target languages. For example we should be allowed to delete all but one course across all of Duolingo not all but one course per target language. As it is right now it is quite messy.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Miholecz

      This is still an issue.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Zack-ExNihilo

      I think this issue is not yet considered by the Duolingo team...Did anyone find a solution?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Margherita311668

      I had the same issue and I found a way to solve it.. it's a bit complicated so I'll just write down here my experience. I had a German course from Italian and out of curiosity I opened a Japanese course from English (since there isn't any from Italian), I wanted to remove the Japanese course so I followed the instructions and the "remove" option was not available, I chose to reset the course.. when I got back to the app the Japanese course opened all over from the start ("start as new" or "you know already some Japanese" option) but I also had the possibility to go back and choose another language to learn, so I went back and chose another course from Italian (as my German course). In this way I ended up with two courses from Italian and I was able to remove one of the two. I don't know if it's clear enough, I hope it could be useful


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cjmeyer96

      Does not work anymore, May 2020


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Eri-Shan

      How was it possible to go back and choose another course? I can't switch a course, I can only add to my second target languages, which doesn't solve the problem..

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pratishtha1401

      You can do it because that's what I just did 1) go to the desktop version of duoling 2)Open that another language course 3) Then go to settings from that another language interface 4) Click on remove languages/courses option 5) Now the main thing you will find that remove button is grey so instead you have to click on reset button to erase all the progress 6) Log out and open the app It will be removed Yes, you can thank me


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/A11c31984

      this actually worked for me thanks

      Pratishtha1401, you are already a good teachear, take a look here: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/27534615


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EidAlhamal

      Yup it works, and it’s actually simpler than what it used to be. Thanks.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AgnyLeo

      agreed. it's necessary


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeonardoCa230463

      Why can't I remove the English course? I still have 6 other language courses, I've done everything to remove it, I've already followed every step of the instructions, but It's still doesn't work, anyone can help me?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tattamin

      This has been copied from the Help Center - why?
      If the duolingo team does not trust its users to find the Help Center, it would make much more sense to make that easier accessible (as it is, the link constantly disappears when more threads are being loaded in the forum view) rather than making redundant posts about individual questions, posts that nobody who cannot even find the "Help" link will be able to find again a week from now.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hohenems

      If a user did this, I would delete the post and ask them on their stream not to copy and paste "readily" available material from elsewhere on the site.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      Same here...

      Will we have 61 sticky discussions in TBS forum: one for each Support Pages' article?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/...Kaspersky...

      How can we will be a mod?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jarrettph

      Information on on how to do something that is currently impossible is not readily available on the site.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jarrettph

      Downvoting me won't change that.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FieryCat

      But here you able to ask them awkward questions ;)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WildSage

      Adding them to the forum might make sense if they added an automatic (and more advanced) search feature to the post discussion feature.

      Without that it becomes something else users ignore in their rush to post.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/monopoly777

      Exactly. Why have they copied this from the help center????? It's just silly. You don't need to have this in 2 places.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/pokhriyalvishnu

      maybe because if you don't find the first one


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AGreatUserName

      Can someone post a link to the help centre? I've never seen it!?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      Can someone post a link to the help centre?

      HelpfulDuo already shared it in their original message in this discussion (last line).

      I've never seen it!?

      You can also access it, when under the English interface(*), by hovering over your username (in the blue barmenu) then clicking on "Help".

      (*) English interface = when you're currently working on a course for English native speakers.

      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ready0208

      Thanks. now i am getting out of duolingo I guess


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      Or you can just (reset then) let this other course be and work on the one you came on Duolingo for.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ready0208

      I did it but it still appear like I am still interested in it (I am not because don't know japanese. I just wanted to see how the site looks like in other languages)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      I did it

      You mean "reseting it"? Then now do the second part: let this "English from Japanese" course be (in your list of studied language on your profile) and concentrate on your real course.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Prijaukintasis

      I'd love to delete 'English' and 'Catalan' that I can see in my profile. But unfortunately it's impossible.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      Your are following "English" course from what other language?

      If it's for Spanish speakers, like Catalan, then you can delete one of the two (if you've not started any other course for Spanish speakers).
      If it's not for Spanish speakers and that you haven't started any other course from this same source language (from which you've started english), then you'll not be able to delete the English course.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lek0005

      Beside the fact that it's been copied from the help centre, I like this info.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sephsten

      why do people give duolingo lingots


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tu.8zPhLic1iMlgP

      I have the same issue as many users: I can't delete the only language I was learning from Spanish even though I'm signed up to a bunch of others from English. I have emailed DL weeks ago, no reply. Has anyone any news or tip about that very annoying design flaw?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      I have emailed DL weeks ago, no reply.

      Emailing is not the way to share something with staff (receiving emails from millions of users from the whole world is not scalable). So nothing surprising in not having answers to an email contact.
      The way to report is not email but filling this form. To which, as explained in the form, Duo doesn't answer, but they read it which is what matters in order to improve Duo.

      very annoying design flaw?

      How is it "very annoying" when the fact that this course from Spanish will appear nowhere(°) as associated to your account, as soon as you reset your progress for that course?

      (°) except maybe on your profile page. But how would it be "very" annoying?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/iiai

      In my profile Settings there is no way to remove a language, but accessing the direct link provided here by Duo for Reset or remove languages I was able to remove a language from my profile, being logged in. Maybe this can help someone.

      How to change the web site's language ? please answer .. My english is not good. I dont understand most things.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      You need to switch to a course teaching (any language) FROM the language you want the interface into.
      Some examples:

      • If you want the interface in French, you need to switch to a course teaching a language to French speakers.
      • If you want the interface in German, you need to switch to a course teaching a language to German speakers.
      • If you want the interface in Arabic, you need to switch to a course teaching a language to Arabic speakers.

      See here various methods to switch course.

      I study Spanish, Dutch and Japanese which I want to keep doing but I also checked out the English for Chinese speakers. I didn't like it so I haven't done much on that course. How can I delete that one? I see it in the drop down and on my profile on desktop. On mobile, I cannot see it. When I try to go through the same process mentioned here, the red buttons are greyed out as if it was the only language I'm learning and I cannot delete it. Any idea how to do this?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      How can I delete that one?

      Please see previous answer to the same question: the answer to Tnerenbears's similar question.

      You can't as it is the only language you're learning from the Chinese interface

      (in your case, from the Chinese interface).

      as if it was the only language I'm learning

      It is the only one you're learning from the Chinese interface.

      Each interfaces you activated must always have at least one course.
      In your case, you activated the Chinese interface by starting courses fro English speakers and the English interface by starting courses fro English speakers.

      Your account must therefore have at least one course for Chinese speakers and one for English speakers.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/norbert7

      Can I delete my Chinese interface then?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      No, you can't delete any interface you activated.
      If there were a way then there would be a way to delete the last/only course from a given interface...


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jarrettph

      All well and good if you access DL via a computer. If, like me, you use your Android phone to study then there's no way of deleting those extra languages that have been added. Think I'll stick with Memrise. It's cheaper, a better UI, and is far more in depth.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hannes282894

      if you are trying to get rid of a course, then I recommend to read that sticky that helpfulduo posted:)

      I deleted all my courses except Japanese and it did not refresh. I also can't delete my Polish -> English course because it's treated as the last one – and yes, it's the last one for "from Polish", but is not for my account. What can I do with this?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      I deleted all my courses except Japanese and it did not refresh.

      According to your account, you are now only following Japanese (among non-English languages). So it seems to have worked.

      and yes, it's the last one for "from Polish", but is not for my account. What can I do with this?

      On that, nothing you can do (to delete it) as it's the last one in the Polish interface and since it's what matters when it comes to be able to delete a course or not. It's like that, nothing we(=us users) can do about it.
      But you can reset the course to 0. Like that it'll not appear next o your username in the forums. There is nothing more you can do.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Caliber8ing

      would deleting a course remove the XP earned from my overall XP count?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PoolBubble

      It says in my profile that I am learning Spanish. Why is it?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

      Probably because you "switched" once to a course teaching Spanish. Not necessarily taking any lesson in said course, but just switched once to that course. You can remove it from the list in your settings if it being listed bothers you.

      Help! I can't make any threads here on troubleshooting! When I write a new post and click to submit it, I get error 404 :,-( Doesn't seem to happen when commenting on existing threads, only creating new ones.

      Anyway, what I wanted to make a thread about is:

      Whenever I go to a certain sentence's comment section and write something, the comment never shows up. I don't know if my account is glitched or that's somehow normal behavior (such as moderators having to approve every comment before it can be shown).

        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

        One can't "delete" a feature from a new version of a program. You can try to install back an older version of the app (however, I don't know where you can find older versions): if you install an old enough version you'll not have this new feature/interface but you'll also not have many other new things.

        Duolingo is switching little by little all its users to this new "system" (=the "health" one) that Duo tests evaluated as better (according to their criteria).

        Why cant I learn Ancient Mayan?

        Nothing prohibits you to find (on the internet or ij a school) a course of "ancient Maya".
        But you'll probably first have to decide which one (of the ancient Maya languages) you want to learn:

        On Duolingo, it's likely it'll be one day available but.. when? Maybe in several months, several years or several dozen of years...
        Many courses are "wanted" and not only for English speakers. And Duo unfortunately can't support and help at the same time too much teams of volunteers, hence they can't add at once all the courses they'd like to add in the incubator.

        If you'd like to suggest a course, see this short guide about “How to suggest a course”.

        I don't know why you can't. Isn't it where you can start a different language?
