How do I change languages on my kindle?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Kindle fire -- brand new-- but text is dutch ( I think)

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Brand new -- don't know what to do

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the E-reader Expert to know before I connect you?

Need English first -- then maybe more questions

Good evening,

Give me just a second to get those steps for you :) I can imagine that is pretty annoying, if you don't speak Dutch!
