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.

Check out the Duolingo Help Center for more great tips about using Duolingo.

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.

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?

August 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/jarrettph

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

August 27, 2017

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

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.

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. :(

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

September 22, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/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/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?

July 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/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.

July 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/norbert7

Can I delete my Chinese interface then?

October 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/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.

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.

    Ok, everyone who is having problems, I have the fix! Make sure you are on the full desktop site. If you are on mobile you can do this in your browser from the menu in Chrome, for Android. I'm sure there's a similar option for iOS/Safari. Hope that helps! Go to your settings from the full site and you can see the options to remove the language like the guide above shows.

    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?

    May 17, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/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?

    I don't think you lose EXP, you just lose your progress on the tree. So none of your skills will be practiced, and only basics 1 is unlocked, but you still have however much EXP you got from that tree before. I am not 100% sure, though, because I have never reset a tree.

    April 10, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/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? #culturalawarenes #CA #Ballislyfe #BL

    May 2, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/jrikhal

    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:

    (Wikipedia image)

    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”.
