Would you please clarify your question? I'm not sure what you mean. Thanks! :)

By default, I'm pretty sure you can only see English as an option if you're viewing the site in another language in which there are lessons for learning English available. If you're viewing the site in English, you only see the options for language lessons available for English speakers.

EDIT: You can, however, go to your account settings and click on "Learning Language" and select whichever version of the English lessons you want to use from there.

The list of possible courses includes all available language pairs. The website interface itself (like in the Blue bar where it says "Home" "Activity" "Discussion" and "Immersion" are all in English for me. But, if I changed to a course with a different base language, the website interface would change to match it. ^_^

Dang! Usagiboy7 and Razzles, you guys are perspicacious (to drag up a word from college days). I thought the question was a Zen kōan.

@slogger, I hadn't thought of that! Maybe :) (And this is the first time I've heard the term Zen kōan. I went and looked it up after I saw it.)

Zen kōan is another term dragged up from my college days. You know, these Liberal Arts majors. The spelling is thanks to the Internet. . . . Also, let me just take a minute to say thanks! for all the help you give on this forum. What you do is really useful.
