I am curious as to what this feedback is. Fierljeppen, alvestedetocht, skûtsjesilen, and keatsen, all refer to sports popular in Friesland. I don't think these would be out of place in a section on Dutch sports terminology, even if the terms are Frisian, as long as most native Dutch speakers were fami,iar with or used these words.

Hi everyone! We’ve heard the feedback and are removing “fierljeppen” from the course when we have the tools to do so (we can’t right now). So for now, hopefully these sentences are more straightforward. Also in the meantime, you can read the Wikipedia article on fierljeppen!
