How to delete a language on your Duolingo iPhone app using a computer

DuolingoYou can only delete a language on your Duolingo iPhone app using a computer.

Duolingo is a popular language-learning app, widely known for its simple lessons, signature owl mascot, and insistent, sometimes vaguely harrowing notifications and reminders.

Some people use Duolingo casually, to learn the basics of a language before they travel somewhere. Others use it every day to keep up with a language they already know, or to learn a brand new one.

Once you download Duolingo, it is tempting to try to learn a bunch of different languages, or to hop from one to the next. All that hopping can eventually leave your home screen cluttered.

The good news is you can easily delete a language from the Duolingo app, but you can’t do it from the app itself – you’ll have to use a computer to do it. Also you should note that deleting a course can’t be undone – once you delete it, if you want to add it back again, you’ll have to start from the beginning.

Here’s how to delete a language from the Duolingo iPhone app using your computer.
