Chinese Dining-3 has wrong Pinyin for the example in Tips and Notes

Wǒ tīng wán le jīntiān de xīnwén.
I finished reading today’s news.

is the official example given by Duolingo. I think ting here should be replaced with kan? because 听--〉 to listen and 看--〉to read. Perhaps the example meant "I finished listening to today's news".

Just wanted to point this out! Maybe I am wrong :) I am just learning Chinese myself anways.

Thanks for the great lesson and support!

Your suggestion is correct. The Pinyin here doesn't correspond to the characters. 看 means to read, 听 means to listen.
