"I want to see the menu." seems like a valid translation but is not accepted.

yes, and you could also mean "I want to see the card" (poker)

That translation seems to be accepted now.

Whats the difference in pronunciation of 'Je veux' and 'Je vais'?

Thanks Sitesurf! For anyone else who had the same doubt, here's the link for 'Je vais': http://www.forvo.com/word/je_vais/#fr and here's the link for 'Je veux': http://www.forvo.com/word/je_veux/#fr (spl0uf does both, so you can see the difference clearly)

How do you translate: "I want to view the map"? According to Duolingo, to view != to see. This comes as a big suprise to me since they're both derived from the same Latin word videre.

Please enlighten me.
