Impossible. It ALWAYS rains in Belgium.
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.
What is the difference between "it rains" and "it is raining" (now) in Dutch?
I like to read this as though it doesn't rain in Belgium. Period. Ever.
It is raining in Belgium
Some advertisement for Belgium ^^
Should it not be a comma before maar?
Theres a missing in in the wordbox for me
why is Holland not accepted
In English we call the Netherlands Holland. It is simply wrong to mark it incorrect.
It is the same when you say "Essex" and you mean 'England', Sorry for all those englishmen who don't know the difference between Essex and England.
My mistake, I thought this was a language learning app rather than a geography learning app.
Nope þat is just þou and you Americane
Why isn't Holland a suitable alternative to the Netherlands?
Holland is a province of the Netherlands. Or should I say 2 provinces: North-Holland and South-Holland.
