Google Translate

Duolingo - Grand aims, and I would sign up to that, as I am in the process of learning Spanish. But I don't agree to the Duolingo terms and conditions. According to their terms and conditions, you agree to the terms and conditions by just looking at the website, so that produces a paradox that in order to read the terms and conditions, you have already implicitly agreed to them, ie before you've even finished reading them. That is, therefore, a Shrinkwrapped Contract. Also, according to the terms and conditions, they can change the terms and conditions to anything, anytime, without telling you, and you automatically agree to them. Well, NO! I don't!

A point was made at some time that FLAGS don't represent LANGUAGES unless there is a one-to-one relationship.
