Can't get rid of unwanted language
I accidentally pressed German as one of my languages and now I can't get it off my profile. They should include in the app update a way to delete languages off your profile. But they should still keep the progress just in case you delete the language you actually wanted to learn
If you have signed up for a course with a German base language, and it is the only course with that base language, I think you can't remove it. At least, that is something that people have talked about before.
If you aren't sure what I mean by base and target language, here is an explanation:
Target language is the language you are trying to learn.
Base language is the language you are learning from.
(I am learning Spanish from English. My target language is Spanish. My base language is English.
I hope this helps! (Also, I don't normally help out in Troubleshooting because I'm not a tech person. It is possible that someone with more know-how will stop by if I'm wrong. ^_^)
I don't have a section for learning languages under my settings page, there are only your profile, daily goal, general, accessibility and notifications. Please help guys. Call it OCD, but I can't stand the language I chosen accidentally in my list of languages, especially since I've already finished another language to its entirety. Thanks!
Use the menu here to change it: http://www.duolingo.com/settings/direction. Do NOT click on any grey text. In the future you can also visit the Wiki's faq then go to the courses tab, then how to change my course. It has visual directions of how to do this in case you dont have the direct link. The wiki is here: http://duolingo.wikia.com (full og good stuff you should check it out.). ^_^
Go into settings (click on your icon).
On the right hand bar, click 'Learning Language'.
There'll be a faint grey bar under 'See all language courses'.
It says 'Reset or remove languages'. Click on that and choose which one you want to remove. DONE!
I've been wanting to delete most of the language I've selected, since they kind of get in the way of my German practice, but since I have mobile version, every time I try and go to the settings and delete them, I see not buttons what so ever that say DELETE language or whatever. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME
While true, this is a fact with little consequence. If you want to fully deactivate your account, you deactivate your account. If you merely want to get rid of all languages from a second base language, indeed you can't exactly do it. But when you zero out your progress from that base language, there's no functional distinction between that and theoretically being able to totally delete it (i.e. you'll never see any hint of those trees, nor will anyone else, and if you ever returned there, it would be as if you'd never been before).
