Use of vosotros

Why is the verb form of vosotros not used in any of the Spanish lessons. I understand that it is often used in Spain although not in South America?

Because the course teaches Latin-American Spanish and not the kind of Spanish spoken in Spain (although it shows the Spain flag, which can kind of be a little confusing for new users).

Por suerte Duolingo acepta las respuestas con vosotros (tenéis, bebéis, etc) y puedes usar esa forma aquí :) ¡Yo lo hago y aprendo "vosotros"!

I recommend watching extr@ en espanol on youtube to get used to hearing vosotros.

Generally, vosotros isn't used that much in Spain anyways, so it won't be too much of a burden. We used Spain's flag simply because Mexico's flag looks a lot like the Italian flag, and would be hard to tell apart.

Depends where in Spain apparently. I had a teacher from Madrid and she used it all the time. I must say, understanding her when she said habláis or something was the least of my worries.

I've never used it as a native Spanish speaker. I also have a friend from Argentina who uses "vos" a lot, but never "vosotros"
