"Los estudiantes están leyendo sus exámenes."
Translation:The students are reading their exams.
Is this reading in the Canadian sense? I.e "taking their exams" Or is it reading as in they're merely reading the text.
This makes no sense in English. They can read their exam papers, or in university they are reading, say, English if they are studying for an English degree, or they can be reading the results of their exams. Reading their exams makes no sense.
Reading? Is this one of those American English vs British English terms or is this a literal translation from Spanish? Can anyone explain please?
You can say sitting or taking their exams, Reading their exams is very old fashioned.
