Why no "Report Error" button anywhere? (+ an Error in German)

I'm learning German knowing English. Would like to suggest that there should be an easy way for the community of users to report/submit existing errors in Duolingo.

For example, in the vocabulary of the very first little Skill Box in German (Basics 1), there is the word "sein", and for its "bin" variety you get the following incorrect information:

bin: her Example sentence: Ich bin in ihrem Garten. Translation: I am in her yard.

But "bin" stands for "am", not "her" (and I'm just starting German, but I know there's an error here)

My suggestion: on every page there should be a button (or some mechanism) which would allow users to submit/report an error on that page, for Duolingo to review and check them out.

Right now I found no way to submit an error, so I wrote this Discussion thread instead, which is not very efficient at all, neither for me to report, nor for Duolingo to verify and take action when needed.

PS. There are more mistakes like that one in that very same page for the word "sein": http://www.duolingo.com/word/de/sein/Verb

There should be a page where you can see al the reported errors for each sentence or each word and the time needed for correct the errors. Now do we learn errors and many students take time for reporting errors wich are known and reported ten times or more.
