Swedish is easy. Finnish has 14 or 15 different cases for words http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/finnish-cases.html. You can express quite a lot with just one word.

Indeed! 8 declensions is perfectly fine.

In the audio, "tidningarna" sounds almost like "tidningeh-na". Is that correct? (I'm trying to do my best with pronunciation, but my speakers aren't always up to snuff, so sometimes it's helpful to check.)

It has just occured to me that previously I have seen it mentioned that tidning can be either newspaper or magazine. How do you know which is being refered to?

Actually the answer is "we are not reading the papers" which is not correct in my opinion, should be newspapers. Please correct.

It'd be helpful for this sentence to say "the newspapers on the table" or something similar.
