Schools interface language

I am using Duolingo with my Japanese students, who are learning English. However, the Duolingo Schools interface is in Japanese, so it makes it hard for me to use - can I change the interface to English?

I've just messed with some setting on a test classroom, and it looks like the interface language and the classroom language are separate. If you're currently doing the Spanish from English course, the interface should show up in English. Is that not what's happening for you?

Thanks for the reply, Hugh. I've had a closer look and my problem was that I had my profile set to English for Japanese speakers, so obviously everything was in Japanese... Now that I have switched back to Spanish for English speakers, I can now navigate the classroom information in English. The only issue I have now is that the information in the activity log for each student in still in Japanese, so it's a bit tricky to know what sections my students are doing - having to translate the Japanese for each section that they complete is a bit of a pain (but it's good for my Japanese!)

That's interesting. I suppose the system is showing you the skill names as they're named in the course.
