Advanced search in PubmedOct 20

Hi, Carmen, I did this course a few months ago, but I have a doubt about doing an advanced search in another language in Pubmed- in the presentation, it showed that you could choose the language from the drop-down "show index list" on the second line, but when I expand this, it shows lots of code and other suggested terms but no language option. I was wondering if I was doing it properly? (sorry for writing with my query so late; I was just going over my notes today and this doubt came up).

Dear Isa,

Here is a screenshot of doing a language search in Pubmed. The code should only appear as you enter searching criteria.
