Change computer from French to English and back on Acer Extensa 5220

I have an international student from the French-speaking country of Benin who is staying with me in USA. She has an Acer Extensa 5220 with OS Vista basic. Her laptop is entirely in French. She did not bring her manual and she forgot how to switch to English so I can troubleshoot any more problems (we had an earlier problem resolved here) She is unable to translate (into English) sufficiently any technical computer terminology. We do not want to permanently change it into English but temporarily so I can help her with technical problems. I am a Window XP user so it makes it even more difficult for me to help her because I do not recognize where to navigate etc. If she had Windows XP I possibly could do it even in French. She is totally non-technical and about all she can do is read and send emails and surf the web and (I assume) write papers for school.
Thank you I would appreciate any help, I do not think that this is a terrible difficult one. Thanks again.

    Thanks for trying, but the student has done it before and it does have keys that have EN and a button that says EN. So I know it can be done, she must have the correct version as she does speak English (just not technical English) and bought it to come to school here to improve her English. She just can not remember how to do it and left her User Manual in Benin. Thanks

Go to Google Translate and use it to translate from French to English. It is a translating application you can use to read the French setup on the computer. You'll need another computer to do the translation.

I have 2 questions/problems. I have an international student from the French-speaking country of Benin who is staying with me in USA. She has an Acer Extensa 5220 with OS Vista basic. Her laptop is...


I had a Chinese student with a Vista laptop so she could go through the steps below on her computer which was in Chinese and she translated from Chinese to English according to as what was on her laptop we assumed it was the same on the Vista computer in French.
1. Clicked on the Windows orb
2. Clicked on Control Panel.
3. Clicked on Network and Sharing Center.
4. Clicked on Manage wireless networks.
5. I highlighted my network and clicked on Remove. Then I fiddled around with it to find my network and forced it to connect it to my network. At least this is what I could tell because the owner of the laptop went out of town for a couple of days. Some words were close enough to English when I was messing arround. Well, it worked. I still need to know (for any later problems) how to switch her computer into English and back to French for when I have to troubleshoot another problem for her. She is totally non-technical and about all she can do is read and send emails and surf the web. And, I assume, can write papers on it for school. She is in a Masters program here in USA.
