Can't I just say "Eu leio dele no jornal"?

I put exactly that and Duo accepted it.

I put it, and it didn't. Interesting.

I believe that "read" is in the simple past and wrote "Eu li sobre ele no jornal." It was accepted.

This is really annoying. Some English "in"s are Portuguese "on"s, or "no"

I put " O jornal " instead of " No jornal " why is it wrong ?

em + o = no

in the newspaper

I put "o" - "the paper" and it said it should have been "a paper" - but I was right.
