Not able to change translation direction

I originally posted this into the Duolingo in English forum, but someone recommended also posting here.

I've also sent a support ticket twice, and never gotten an answer.

I haven't been able to change translation direction by clicking on the two flags in immersion for a long time now. I've completely stopped doing immersion because I don't feel confident writing sentences in French from English, but I feel like I can translate sentences in French to English. But after I clicked the two flags in the immersion tab, that button suddenly stopped working, and now I'm stuck in the English to French translating section.

Thanks for the report, we'll have a fix out for this soon!


A potential workaround:
Have you tried switching to the "I want to learn French (I know English)" course?
That should have you translating from French to English when you go into Immersion.

Change your course here: https://www.duolingo.com/settings/direction


This should be fixed now. Happy translating =P


Thanks a lot! :)
