What dialect of Spanish is Duolingo teaching

Hi, I am starting out with Spanish and it seems as though the dialect of Spanish I am learning in Duolingo is different from what I learned in elementary school. Any information on this would be appreciated.thx Gordon

the dialect in duolingo is mostly from spain, but usually words from other countries are accepted. I don't know what you learned in elementary school, where i'm from they don't teach us until secondary school and i feel like if you learned it in an elementary school it would depend on your teacher's general experience in the language itself which varies depending on where you are from.

It's a kind of neutral Spanish.
