    Yay! My ipod is in English again.

    I never got around to asking my sister about the problem to see if she had any ideas on how to fix it.

    I tried syncing it with my itunes but through itunes I could not find a way to access the settings menu that would allow me to change the language, and I did not want to reset it because I have a 1000+ songs and that would take long to have to load them all back again.
