According to Duolingo: "Closely linked to German and English, Dutch is the national language of the Netherlands and spoken across Europe by 28 million people. On Duolingo, you'll learn to speak like a local and impress everyone with your new language skills." Flemish (a dialect of Dutch commonly found in Belgium) is not taught in this course, hence the distinction. Read more about Dutch on Wikipedia.
The Dutch course from English contains 123 skills, and 500 total lessons, making it the longest language tree by number of skills.
