I'm an English speaker enrolled in all the courses for English speakers, including the new arrival, Dutch. I used DL just earlier today, and it was fine, but when I come back to it now, it's stuck thinking I'm a Dutch speaker just about to start an English course!

Is anyone else experiencing this? Does anyone know how I can get my courses back? I'd hate to break my streak over this, or (much worse) to lose all my progress. I've already contacted support, but I've done that in the past and never received an answer, so I'm not going to hold my breath. Someone please rescue me from this PKD-style alternate reality!

Okay, calm down. You haven't lost your progress.

Just hover over your username at the top and click on 'Instellingen'. Once you're there, select 'Lerende taal'. There you'll get a drop down menu with courses, and if you select any course for English speakers, you'll be able to see your progress again.

It did this for me too but in French. I was able to resolve it by going to the add a new course option that appears when you hover over the flag next to your profile pic and trying to start one of my old courses over again. It brought me back to where I had been in those courses before it freaked out.

I thought I'd heard of something like this happening before. I might have tried selecting one of my courses again, but I thought there was a chance it might actually start me at the beginning, which would suck. Thanks for your help!
