  5. Can I remove a language from …


Can I remove a language from my profile?

I would like to know if I choose to add a language can I later remove it if I no longer wish to pursue it. If I choose to no longer learn a language does it simply stay on profile at whatever stage I reached?

Yes, you can remove it UNLESS it is the last course you are learning from a specific language.

For example, if you subscribe to French, German, and Spanish for English speakers, you can remove two of those courses but not the third.

If you subscribe to French for English speakers and French for Spanish speakers, you cannot remove either of them because you are not learning any other languages for English speakers or any other languages for Spanish speakers.

Here's how to delete a language, in case you don't already know:


My annoying but funny friend had access to my duolingo account (because it was already signed in) and added a new course saying i was romanian and added english. From my french and russian, i can't remove english. how do i remove it? I checked in the language-adder and it doesn't say i learn it but on my profile it says i do. i can't also access english. how can i remove it because its annying me SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes you can.

Go to Settings ->Learning language

There you will see a "reset or remove languages" option.


Yes you can, if you go into the settings menu, under Learning Language there's an option to reset or remove a language. You can't reverse this though: it will no longer show on your profile at all, and if you want to add it again you have to start from the beginning again.
