I wish y'all would have said which kindle you have as Amazon requested: "Always include which Kindle you have at the beginning of your post."


Kindle Touch, follow this:

You don't need to do the words, just count and this works for all languages

Home Page
Menu
6th listing (was 7th)
3rd listing
5th listing (was 4th)
1st listing
English or whatever you want
Ok
Ok/Accept

and the Touch will reboot

------------------------------------------------------------

This will work for the Basic Kindle (languages = German / French / Italian / Spanish / Portuguese) for the Basic:

1. Press Menu button.
2. Select settings (9th option in the menu) = Einstellungen / Parametres / Impostazioni / Configuracion / Configuracoes
3. press the "next page" bar on the side of the Kindle two times.
4. Select (may be second listing on the menu) - Geratesprachen / Langue du Peripherique / Imposta / Establecer / Estabelecer (possibly)
5. Einstellen / Definer / Lingua Dispotivo / Idioma del dispositivo / Idioma do dispositivo
6. OK

kindle will reboot

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Paperwhite:

1. Tap the Home icon (House)
2. Tap the Menu icon (3 bars on upper right)
3. Tap the 2nd-to-last item on the menu (6th from the top if you have the offers, 5th from the top if you don't) = Settings
4. Tap the 4th item = Device Options
5. Tap the last (5th) item = Language and Dictionaries
6. Tap the 1st item = Language
7. English

------------------------------------------------------------

All 2012 Kindle Fires:

1. swipe down from the top middle
2. hit the plus sign
3rd from the bottom is Language and Keyboard (scroll down), tap that
3. top choice is Language, tap that and select English
4. bottom is keyboard unless there are three choices in which case, it's now the middle one - check and make sure it's english
