Why the English icon next to my name?
A long time ago I signed up to learn Japanese through English, but shortly after I took it off. So I'm not learning that anymore. What is the American English icon there for? Does it stand for that course, or does it stand for something else? How do I take it off?
When you hover over the flag, what options do you get? What language is the rest of your duo page in, and what tree do you get if you just go to duolingo.com? If you go to settings -> learning languages -> reset languages what languages do you see?
Right now, I have the American flag next to my name, and when I hover over the flag I only can see "Íngles, nivel 6" because I'm taking the Spanish->English course. When I look at my tree, I get the Spanish->English tree. My interface is in Spanish.
In order to change my language back to English--and my flag to Spain or Sweden--I have to change to my courses a little more laboriously. Duolingo groups courses together by the language from which you're learning them, and changing between those groups is a bit of a pain. I usually go to the "courses for English speakers" page and pick Spanish. Once I start that course, my English->Spanish tree appears and my flag is Spain once again.
Once I'm back in the "learning from English" group with an English interface, I can go the reset languages settings and only see "Spanish from English" and "Swedish from English." I can only see "English from Spanish" if I'm in the "learning from Spanish" group.
When I hover over the flag (or any of the flag icons) nothing happens. Nothing. I have gone to Setting->learning languages->Reset or Remove languages, and there are only three there - Spanish, Italian, and Swedish. That is how it should be! My interface and everything is in English.
So maybe I go to the "learning from Japanese" group and take the English course off from there? I will see what I can do...hopefully I can fix it. Thank you for explaining this all to me.
