The pronunciation is wrong for regent. The "reg" should be more like raygun not like reg in regular. Like régent.
You are right. I guess they cannot switch between 2 different options yet. Regent pronounced as it is here has the same meaning as the word regent in English.
"The rain" would be "de regen". "To rain" in Dutch is "regenEN". This means the conjugation is "ik regen (which for obvious reasons is ridiculous), jij regent (same), (hij/zij/) het regent," etc.
i have the same question and get confused too, but then i realize that in this part we are learning about verb. so that "it rains" not "the rain".
Het can mean ''it'' or ''the''. It means either of these things. In this example, it means it, not the.
That would be "het regen" I think. the noun forms are going to be the same as the infinitives
