Press and hold the Play button until the player turns on. After the Welcome screen the Main Menu will appear. Press the PREV/NEXT button to select the Setting mode.

I'm not sure what language you have it in, but turn your mp3 player on, go down 5 times and select, go down 5 times and select again, english is the first selection on the next screen. If this does not work let me know so I can try to assist you more.
If you accidentally set iPod nano to use a language you don’t understand
You can reset the language.
1 Press and hold Menu until the main menu appears.
2 Choose the sixth menu item (Settings).
3 Choose the last menu item (Reset Settings).
4 Choose the first item (Reset) and select a language.
Other iPod nano settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.
Note: If you added or removed items from the iPod nano main menu (see “Adding or
Removing Items on the Main Menu” on page 11) the Settings menu item may be in a
different place. If you can’t find the Reset Settings menu item, you can restore
iPod nano to its original state and choose a language. See “Updating and Restoring
iPod Software” on page 69.
Hey tkcccombs, If you've accidentally chosen the wrong display language, there are a couple of steps you can try to reset the default language. First, I would suggest attempting to reset the iPod. You can generally do this by first toggling the "Hold" button from the "On" to "Off" position, and then pressing (and holding) both the "Menu" and center "Select" button for six to eight seconds. According to information provided by Apple, you may need to repeat this step depending on how long you've had the iPod. Second, you may wish to try updating your iPod's software using iTunes. This will require that your iPod be connected directly to your computer while the software is being updated. Next, you'll want to go to disconnect your iPod from your computer once the software update is complete, and go to the main menu by pressing the "Menu" button. The main menu's title should display "iPod" no matter what language you initially chose. The last step - actually choosing the new language - varies depending on what generation and type of iPod you own, so I'd suggest checking out this link through Apple's support website for specific instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1824 Hope this helps you out.
