Note 1: If a course (that doesn't match the Current Preferred Language of a User) is assigned to the user. The user will be able to access this course under Me / My Training Although this course won't match their Current Preferred Language.

e.g. If Course A is assigned to User B, the user will be able to access this course.

10/01/2022 A User had their Preferred Language set as French.

11/01/2022 The User was assigned to a French course.

12/01/2022 The User Changes their Preferred Language to Italian.
