How to change your preferred language to English in Moodle

When you log into Moodle for the first time, you may have Finnish as the default language.

You can change the language to English yourself but obviously it is a hard task if you don’t understand Finnish. With the help of these pictures, you will be able to change the language setting:

  1. First, log in to Moodle.
  2. Then, click the text “Omat kurssini” in the upper right corner:

    “Omat kurssini” means My courses in English

  3. Now you will see a list of your courses in case you have been added to courses or if you have managed to self enroll to a course despite the language problems. On the top of the page, click your name:

    Your name is on the top of the page. (BTW, Kirjaudu ulos = Log out).

  4. Now look for Käyttäjätiedot (=User details) and choose the link “Asetukset” (Settings).

    Asetukset = Settings

  5. Below the Käyttäjätunnus (=user name) header, click the “Haluttu kieli” link; it means preferred language.

    Haluttu kieli = Preferred language

  6. This is the final step: Choose English from the drop down menu and click the “Tallenna muutokset” button and you are done.

    Haluttu kieli = Preferred language, Tallenna muutokset = Save changes, Peruuta = Cancel

    Phew, that was it! Now you can use Moodle somewhat easier. 🙂
