I'm confused. It literally translates to: "We read can't understand." There's not even an object in the sentence...

This is one of those circumstances that the Mandarin does not translate well into English. Duo forces English speakers to learn this without explanation.

I find Google translate a useful adjunct to duolingo. For this sentence it offers, "We don't understand."
