If you’re looking to reset your progress in Duolingo, you’ve come to the right place! Resetting your progress in Duolingo can be a great way to refresh your language learning experience or start over with a new language. Resetting your Duolingo progress is easy and straightforward, but there are some important things to keep in mind before embarking on this journey.

First of all, when resetting your Duolingo progress, it’s important to remember that all of the progress you have made up until this point will be lost. This means that any lessons you’ve completed, any points and XP earned, and any achievements unlocked will be gone forever. It is also important to note that once you reset your progress, you will no longer be able to view or access any of the previous lessons and activities that you had previously completed.

Once you have accepted these facts and are ready to take the plunge into resetting your Duolingo progress, here are the steps:
1. Log into your Duolingo account
2. Click on “Settings” from the top navigation bar
3. Select “Learning Language” on the right side of the page
4. Find the language for which you would like to reset your progress and click on its flag icon
5. Click on “Reset Progress” at the bottom of the page
6. Confirm that you want to reset your course by selecting “reset course” in the pop-up window
7. You have now successfully reset your course!

Congratulations! You have now successfully reset your course in Duolingo! Keep in mind that if you decide at a later date that you would like to re-start this course, it will start from basics (Level 1). So if you ever want to refresh or restart a certain language learning experience, simply follow these steps above and get going again with a fresh start!
