  5. Incorrect translation?


Incorrect translation?

Firstly I've only just started Duolingo and think it is great, very impressive.

I did come across the word Diario (ES) which shows translated to Newspaper - is this correct? I thought with my limited knowledge that the correct word is Periodico?

Is this a translation issue, or could it be both?

Yes, it is a correct translation. However, "el periĆ³dico" is more commonly used. "El diario," when used, refers to a daily newspaper publication.

Hope this helps!
