And yet in real English... before it rains, the sky clouds over.

Agreed. It seems like the last few skills in the tree have not been reviewed by a native English speaker.

Never heard "clouds over". Gets cloudy

I've heard it in the US.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mikemcdevitt

Yeah, same here, as a native english speaker in America.

Gets cloudy would of course be fine. Clouds over is widely used / understood in England. I've rechecked since last posting that it wasn't just a family thing that had got lodged in my old brain, and for further confirmation see: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/cloud-over

"clouds over" was the translation from https://www.deepl.com/Translator . Try it.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wes708337

"Before it rains the sky clouds up" was just accepted. This sounds very natural to my American ears.

"Before it rains" would be a much better alternative to "Before raining"

Very strange English here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FraWi99

That's no English.

Poor translation.

A înnora ..... get cloudy

Nor - nori. .... cloud-clouds

Norul - norii. ..... defined

PLEASE get a native speaker of English to review the later lessons in this course.

I'd say "Before starting to rain"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Glenn_ski

I often hear "clouds build in" on the weather report here in the US.
