Han læser aviser = He reads/is reading newspapers.
Han læser aviserne = He reads/is reading the newspapers.
Danish doesn't distinguish between "does/is doing" like English does, so both reads and is reading are accepted in these types of exercises. You added in an extra "the", though: aviser is an indefinite noun, which means it just means "newspapers" without the the.
In Danish you don't. Both usually translate as "Jeg spiser". There is not an actual progressive tense in Danish, but there are special constructions you can use if you want to emphasise that something is currently happening, for example "Jeg sidder og spiser" - "I am eating (right now)."
That is what I suspect but I am hearing 'hen læs (upside down e) εvis (British and Bostonian dropped r). Maybe I just need to find a website that deals with pronunciation of languages. Thanks for the information and if you know a website for pronunviation, it will be appreciated
Ordnet.dk have a little speaker symbol next the the words you look up (in most cases), which will give you one or two ways to pronounce the word. The sound quality is good and the pronunciation is clear. There's also forvo.com where native speakers upload sound clips of words/sentences. You have to search out the word and find the Danish entries, if they exist. It is really helpful for learners. I'm not aware of pages that deal exclusively with Danish though.
