is Newspaper (singular) also correct?
Can I use “are reading” here? (Not accepted as a correct translation).
From what I've seen of past q/a's involving am/are/is they add "đang":
Bạn đang đọc báo
Why "doc" is always heard as rap our lap... How do you understand each other?
Vietnamese with accents at "vowels" make a semantic difference. Ex: Đọc - read ; Độc -toxic. Ráp - assembled <> Ráp (nhám) - rough. Rạp - fall <> Rạp - theater. Rập - stereotyped...
Why not also " newspaper " ?
