Course progress reset
I can't seem to find a course reset option anywhere. On Android, I found a remove option to remove the course from my selected courses. On PC, I found a delete option under course management. But both of these seem to only move the course out of view and when I go back to said course, my progress is right where it was. As for the reason, I just want the app to track my progress and to be able to work the projects from new again. It's been about a year since I was first going through the course and I don't recall the material. Just looking for a fresh start and course tracking. Any help is appreciated.

Lord Krishna Sir, I meant pc version. But that's what op mentioned in description. I missed to notice it. Delete option is similar to remove option in app version. I think they removed reset progress from both App and Web versions recently :(
I can confirm Simba's finding in v4.8.1 of android app. Simba How do you reset the course progress on the website? I cannot find the option in the current (mobile) website

Thanks again for clearing everything up. I installed version 4.7.6 and the option was there. I reset the progress of the course and updated back to 4.8.1, and the progress is still reset. Not a great workaround, but it definitely worked.
The loss of XP isn't a factor in my mind because I plan to do the course again and thereby earn the XP back. Plus it's just a random number whereas I'm trying to expand my knowledge of the language. Also, I've tried the method that you are suggesting and the reset progress option is just not there. Is this a new issue? Was it recently removed or am I having an Android vs iPhone issue? Can someone verify that they still see the Reset Progress option available as of today? Or maybe another workaround.
You don't want to do that because you will lose all your XPs, from what I understand. Like you, I've forgotten a lot, but I've been a hobbyist for 40 years, and aspiring polyglot(foreign languages as well, I'm also back on Duolingo). If you DO want to reset your progress, which, again, I'll advise against, go to the language course, click on the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner. One of the options is Reset Progress. Again, I'll advise against this, but if you feel as though you MUST, you can do that. As for me, I'm starting back at the beginning and reviewing several courses. Then, I create little blocks of code to play with, modify, and observe what happens. I LOVE CODING! Happy coding!!!
Thanks for clearing things up. Can anyone confirm the latest version that still had Reset Progress option? I'm going to try and download from apkmirror and see if it still works.
I literally wrote the answer above
I'm on Android so, I don't know about the iPhone.
My menu from the top right only has: Glossary, Make available offline, Share, Create shortcut. So you're saying that yours currently has another option for Reset Progress on it?
I find it strange that I don't. I wonder what the issue could be. I'm currently still in my 2 week trial of Pro version so maybe that's it. It seems like that would be a strange UI difference between phone brands. Also, like I said I definitely tried from my PC and all I saw there was delete and when I pulled it back up it had my progress still. Maybe it's something they did away with and grandfathered people into.
Simba is right. I just updated. That option is gone. I'm relearning a lot of what I forgot anyway, but why lose everything I did in the past. Thank you, Simba!
I am showing you. Wait a while.
Mine has all those, but the second one down is Reset Progress. I'm surprised you don't have it.
Could be. I've been on SL for almost 4 years.
Well, I appreciate the help. At least I know that I'm not losing my mind anymore. I'll submit feedback about it and hope to get an answer from someone.
Like I said, I wouldn't reset my progress. You will hopefully find, as I am, that you may think you've forgotten a lot, but it will all come back to you and may be better than you were before.
At first, go to your Sololearn android app and open it and then go to your desired course by clicking on that course name and then...click on the top-right side showing three dot sign ... And click... Now you will see the reset options... Just touch on reset. Make sure your solo learn app is updated. Thanks
I am on android and also havent got this button anymore. I would have needed it for a course that i did a long time ago and i want to do it again
