Yep definitely. Not sure why you got downvoted for this, OP. It's a perfectly valid post!

Excellent! To clarify can both course be listed in your profile or do you need to switch back and forth between the French for English speakers and English for French speakers in the settings?

For English to appear (on your profile.) you will need to be on that course or another 'from French course.' But when your commenting both will appear. :)

Here is the link to the official Duolingo Help Centre for "How can I learn multiple languages at the same time?"

Yes you can do this. If you are on the English to French course, Just go to and you will have to change your language. Choose I speak... (located on the top right of the page) and select French, then click on learn English course. After I finished the Spanish tree, i decided to change my language to Spanish and do the spanish to english course. It helped me so much with strengthening my reading and writing in Spanish. When you are ready to go back to your English learning French course you will have to go back to and change the language back to English.
