xbox stuck in german in audio screen

So my 12 year old stepson left the controller sitting out.. my 1 year old played with it and got it into german and on the audio screen.  NO matter how many times I try to go back, I can't.. its stuck and I'm getting so ticked off because I can't figure out what to do.  I'm about to throw this thing into the street.  Any suggestions?  It just keeps sending me a screen with a microphone.. since I don't know what the heck it says on that screen, I have no idea what it wants.

Hello. Sorry to read about your issue with your console's language being changed by the little one.


Here is what you want to do to get your console's settings back into English.




1. From the Main Dashboard go to the top right tab that says "Settings" then click on "System".

2. Next you will want to click on "Konsoleneinstellungen" then click on "Sprache und Region".

3. Finally, choose "Sprache" and then "English". Your console should now be in English.


If it happens again, just try to remember the location of the areas you need to go as they don't change regardless of the language.


Good luck.
