Choosing a courseEdit
To start learning a course, click on the flag icon next to your username in the blue bar at the top of the screen or go directly to the courses page.
Please note that learning from a language means that the entire website will be in that language. This is your base language. If you switch from learning from one base language to another base language, the website will change to reflect the new base language, and will hide the progress belonging to any of your other base language courses. For example: if you are an English speaker learning German and you switch to learning French from Spanish, the language of the website will change to Spanish. You will not be able to see your progress on English to German until you switch your base language back to English.
The target language is the language you are trying to learn.
The courses page will give you quick links to all the languages available from your currently set base language. To change your base language and see what other learning options are available, use the "I speak:" pull-down menu.
Duolingo's language courses are created and maintained in the Incubator by volunteers and language experts with the assistance of staff. Some of these courses are also a result of a partnership between Duolingo and organizations such as the Peace Corps.
A listing of all available and in-development courses can be found at the Incubator website. Course information can also be found on the courses page and in the course list, though these may not include all courses or be completely up-to-date.
