  5. "Læser du avisen om formiddag…

"Læser du avisen om formiddagen?"

Translation:Do you read the newspaper in the morning?

Forenoon is not English, never heard it in my life!

It is a word - it's just old fashioned!

It was said in the instructions om would be understood as in and during... So isn't the answer: Do you read the newspaper during the morning correct? Thanks

"During the morning" does makes sense; we commonly say " in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night".

I would say that's correct, report it :)

"Forenoon" is a word?

June 26, 2015


As a londoner, I could say "you read the newspaper in the morning?"

June 27, 2015


I put "Do you read the newspaper in the morning" which was marked correct

In the real world that would work. The problem is that Duolingo doesn't recognize punctuation, therefore it reads your question as a statement and thinks it's wrong.

In english, would this not translate to "...in the morningS?" or "will you read..." or even "did you read..."? which one is correct?

January 8, 2016


This is present tense. Past and future will not be accepted. In the mornings = Om formiddagene, I think.

Formiddagen and formiddagene sound identical in the recordings of this lesson (unlike differences in these endings elsewhere on Duolingo). All I could do was guess between "in the morning" and "in the mornings."

i know forenoon is a word, but who uses it?

October 11, 2018


Actually, I read it in the afternoon

February 19, 2019


Well, i wrote "Are you reading the newspaper about the morning" and I still think it kinda works. I stopped looking for it to make sense when bears started to drink beer and to sing.
