    The simple present, "Now it rains" is not accepted, I have reported it.

    Why was "It is now raining." not accepted?

    November 8, 2017


    Because it is Now it is raining. Or more likely Now it's raining.

    The audio is quite bad. The "re"-part of "regent" is no good.

    It should be like "hey!" written with an R. Nu "rey"gent het. Or "sun ray", Nu "ray"gent het. Although this option might be too "Leidsch" (from Leiden).

    Should the stress fall on the first syllable of regent?

    Yes. "Regent" is pronounced wrong in these sentences, unfortunately.

    Here is how "regent" should sound: https://nl.forvo.com/word/het_regent/#nl and https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bf/Nl-r%C3%A9gent.ogg
