If you're describing what I think you're describing, then it's a horribly annoying bug on duolingo that has been discussed in a few other threads. In case you haven't figured it out yet, here is how to fix it: 1. Go to this page: https://www.duolingo.com/settings/direction 2. From the dropdown menu, choose "I want to learn French (I know English)" [or any other course that you're supposed to be signed up for already or that you want to sign up for] 3. Click on the green button above the dropdown menu that says "Sla wijzigingen op" (which is Dutch for "save changes"). You should now be directed to the correct page.
