How do I report an issue with a flashcard answer?

In the questions there is usually a "report this question" to get alternative answers accepted or similar. I thought some of the flashcards I was shown today returned answers that didn't look right but I didn't see a similar report button to let Duolingo know.

If there is actually an error, report it to the support tab at left. Check a dictionary first as only one possible meaning is listed on the flashcard when there are plenty of other common meanings. http://dictionnaire.reverso.net/francais-anglais/

Thanks, I will look out for that support tab next time. I was probably just missing the obvious as usual. In terms of checking a dictionary, though, I will just to check the answer they give is not a common one, however even if the answer was valid I think they should be giving common meanings in the flashcards instead of obscure ones.

Flashcards show just one meaning for a word but there maybe many words with multiple meanings. So it's possible the solution looks incorrect even though it is correct.

I know the answer I got may have been technically correct, but for example (learning German) as a beginner I don't really want to see "(I) simulate" (verb) as an answer to "Spiegel" when I've learned it to be "Mirror" (noun). When I look at dict.cc I'm still not sure that's even a good translation as a verb...
