I am wanting to learn Spanish based in Spain and it would be VERY helpful if there was a way to turn on vosotros, vuestro, and all the words that go along with it. It would be amazing if we could have three choices for countries, or, regions: Spanish: Mexico (and maybe combine it with central america), Spanish: Spain, and Spanish: Argentina. Or maybe just Spain and Mexico? As long as I get vosotros haha.

Also, I understand that you use the Brazilian flag for Portuguese because you teach Brazilian Portuguese, and the same for American English, but why are you using the Spanish flag is you aren't teaching Spain's Spanish?

I think the issue here is that it's easier to use Spain's flag and possibly ruffle feathers from the Rio Grande on down and into the Caribbean, than it is to use Nicaragua's or the Dominican Republic's and (a) ruffle the feathers of everybody else in the Spanish-speaking world, or (b), reveal the fact that most people don't know one flag from another. Also, Mexico's flag vertically is indistinguishable from Italy's unless enough of the eagle and cactus are sticking out, and the Spanish flag has unique color combination and placement.
