1: tap on the Menu button at top right of the screen. It looks like 'three lines', so it should be obvious.

2: tap on the entry that might say


but is at any rate, roughly the 5th entry down in the Menu... it should be above something like Vue de liste

and below something like Navigateur.

3: tap on the arrow next to what might be

Options de l'appareil

4: tap on the 4th arrow down on this screen, which should be

Personnalisez votre Kindle

5: tap on the first arrow, next to

La langue

6: choose the Language which should be English or 'Anglais'.

7: a window should pop up, with and 'reject' option at lower left, and an 'OK' or 'Oui' option at the lower right - tap on the option at the lower right, to confirm the change of language.

Your Kindle should restart, and come up in English. If the above steps have any uncertainties, if the translations (which are approximate) prove challenging and you aren't certain how to proceed, then just stop there, let me know what step # you are on, and what the choice or choices look like, and I will translate and tell you how to proceed.

This change in language is not easy, but can be done.
