Help me get out of Spanish as my native language.

I speak English and have been loving Duolingo to brush up on my high school French. I wanted to check out the Spanish - English course for a friend so switched over to check it out. Now I don't know how to get back to my original course - English learning French and I can't understand the Spanish on the website in my account. I did check out the help section but the instructions don't help because the screen in the illustration doesn't match my actual mine. E.G., When I go to settings and hit the down arrow, I don't see a list that says, "I speak _ and want to learn _." I just see a list of languages- all written in Spanish.

Can anyone help? I don't want to miss my French lesson today- I've been on a run!

Go here: https://www.duolingo.com/courses

Top right, you should see: 'Yo hablo' with a button saying 'Español'. Click on that button and select 'Inglés'. You should now see the list of languages that you can learn from English, but the list will still be in Spanish. Click on 'Francés', and in the next screen click on 'Ir a este curso'. You should be redirected to the home page and it should be in English, now.


And there is, I think, a much simpler solution. When you are on the home page (https://www.duolingo.com/), if you aim at the flag next to your avatar, you can see all your languages, from all source languages (and not only from the source language currently selected), so you can click on the flag of your choice. It will change the interface's language.

When you are on the discussion page, though, you can only see the languages from your current source language.


At the top of the page hover over the flag which has a language that you are learning. It should open and you should find your French lessons there.
