In the list of the words for lesson 7 there are: pijpenstelen, aanraken, luisteren, hebben

There should probably be "regen" (rain, to rain) in the list instead of "pijpenstelen" (pipe handles). I found that "pijpenstelen" is used together with regen in a common idiom for raining a lot. For example "het regent pijpenstelen" is similar to the English idiom "it is raining cats and dogs".

I had wondered about that. I also noticed it in the list of words, but didn't encounter pijpenstelen in the lesson. Also thanks for sharing the idiom!
