How do I start a reverse tree?

Just out of curiosity, I've seen a lot of people mention they're doing their reverse tree. Is this an option that is unlocked once they've completed their tree, or is this by selected the course from the language they're learning to their native language in the courses menu? Thanks in advance :)

I see you're learning French, so for example to do a reverse French tree you change your learning language to French and enroll in English. You can do this at any time; it's just as if you are a native speaker of another language and want to use Duolingo to learn a language. I recently started a reverse Spanish tree. I thought it would be a breeze, but I'm pleasantly surprised by how challenging it is. There is new vocabulary, and I'm learning verb constructions that I never saw in the Spanish tree.


All good, that's what I thought! Thanks for the clarification
