Translation:It is raining in the Netherlands, but not in Belgium.
What is the difference between "it rains" and "it is raining" (now) in Dutch?
Dutch has 2 pronunciations for "regent", I'll use UPPERCASE for the stressed syllable:
REgent: 3 person singular of the verb "regenen" (to rain)
reGENT: ruler, reigning by absence of a king.
DuoLingo uses the wrong emphasis.
