It is based on which base language you've loaded up. The base language determines what language the website will be in. All of your stats will still be there when you switch back. :)

Hover over the flag next to your username (in the top blue barmenu): a list of all courses you've started (hence to which you can "switch") will be displayed, click on the one you want to switch to.

Sorry, that wasn't really my question xD I mean, when I do ''Spanish for French speakers'' The whole website turns into Spanish, and after I did that I can't see my other languages anymore I did in English. And when I did this and Hover over the flag next to my username the languages dissapeared and I only can see ''Spanish for French speakers''

The whole website turns into Spanish, and after I did that I can't see my other languages anymore I did in English.

Indeed, cf. my original answer to Chris_Dutch.

And when I did this and Hover over the flag next to my username the languages dissapeared and I only can see ''Spanish for French speakers''

When on pages that are under the new website(*), you should see first all the course from your current 'source language" then a thin gray line and, below, all your other courses.

On other pages (all forums' pages, the Words page, some settings pages, ...), you'll only see your course from your current 'source language": to switch course, go to the main page and there hover over your username.

(*) So, in particular, NOT when in any forums' page. Cf. section "When I go to the Words or Discussion tab, the site behaves differently. Why?" in Support Pages' article Duolingo's New Website

Partly true. With the new website code, I've found that all of my stats are withstanding to their highest equivalents in any other language for my list, no matter what, which is quite a nice change. =)

Hi Chris_Dutch,

Could you relocate this discussion in the “Troubleshooting" forum? Which is the place meant for such discussion. Thx!

To relocate it (*), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).

(*) \/!\ please, don’t create a new one \/!\

Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.


My other languages dissapear. I Really don't know why, can someone help me?

See at the bottom of this article which says:

Note: You will never lose progress by switching around to another language. You can go back and forth as you please, as long as you are in the same Duolingo account.


Note: When you're experiencing a problem/bug/glitch on Duolingo or more generally have a question about how Duolingo works (or should work), please do the following before creating a new discussion:

  1. start by looking if there is a solution described in the Support Pages.
    If there are no solutions there,
  2. Use the forum search-engine to search for older discussions about the same subject. Don’t hesitate to make various searches with different keywords and make searches combining several keywords/expressions using standard logical operators (&&, ||) and/or quote marks.
    If you don’t find anything,
  3. read in the Troubleshooting forum the last days new messages — scroll down (and read) a few pages of the tab “New” of said forum — to see if anyone has already started a discussion about the same issue. If nothing in the “New” tab, try the "Popular" tab of the same forum.
    If nothing there,
  4. check the few sticky messages of the "General" forum (for English speakers) to see if there is an announcement related to your issue.
    If still nothing,
  5. post your question in the Troubleshooting forum.

Your progress isn't deleted for other courses, it's just because it's a course from a different base language. If the base language is in Spanish, the entire website will be in Spanish.

Also, if you hover over the course flag near your avatar on the top of page, it'll display all of the courses you're taking, even skill trees from other base langauages (note that this won't work in the Discussion forums or the words section because these features weren't included with the recent rewrite of the website).
