Spiegel always comes up "simulate". Doesn't it really mean "mirror"?

Is that here on Duolingo? If so, you should report it.

Der Spiegel = the mirror or any kind of reflecting surface. Also: the level of a fluid (der Wasserspiegel des Sees)

There is a verb spiegeln = (to) reflect

(to) simulate = simulieren, nachmachen, imitieren, vortäuschen
