What to do? Can’t Read Google Drive Language…

The other day while supporting in the Google Drive Help Forum  I noticed users asking how to set their Google Drive Language back to English. One user in particular said, “How can I change this back if I can’t read the language?” Thanks to screencasting animation it was easy to support the user. Having one’s Google Drive in a Foreign Language may be difficult for some users. On the other hand what about the Student Learning a Foreign Language? It might be an interesting challenge for the students to take.
