"Jag läser nyheterna i tidningen."

Translation:I read the news in the newspaper.

January 5, 2015



63 percent of the Swedes read a newspaper. In Finland, the figure is 71 percent. This does not include the tabloids. If you want to read a Swedish newspaper, try

Dagens Nyheter - http://www.dn.se/

or Svenska Dagbladet - http://www.svd.se/

If you are more interested in tabloids, try

Aftonbladet - http://www.aftonbladet.se/

If you want to read a Finnish newspaper, I recommend

Hufvudstadsbladet - http://hbl.fi/


Shouldn't present progessive also be accepted?


And the olds in the oldspaper.


In English, one may often say they "heard" something when in reference to something they read, as in

I heard about that in the newspaper. (though uncommon, and maybe grammatically incorrect, colloquially "about" may be omitted)

Does Swedish ever use heard in this fashion
