Want to Learn Japanese, Stuck Forever in Spanish

So I few months ago, I downloaded the app when I heard that Japanese would be available. This magically set my learning language to Spanish. Which it's now stuck in. Selecting Japanese from the list starts the Spanish course. There is no setting to change, and it's stuck forever.

As I have no interest in learning that language I went to delete it in the web app. Following the instructions in the Help section, I went to delete it in settings where I found the button is grayed out.

Since the web app for Japanese isn't ready, I can't add it from the web app EITHER.

Seems like I'm stuck in a loop here.

The only thing I've come up with is nuking the site from orbit, i.e. deleting my account AND the app from my phone and hoping I can start over or something.

You can't delete the last language course - you won't be able to get rid of the Spanish one until you've added the Japanese one.

Not being able to add the Japanese course, though - it sounds like you've run into a bug. You can report it - click on the help link at the bottom of this page, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click on the link labelled report a bug.
