It's not that it's outdated, it's more like it has a very specific and often formal context, and dictionaries don't teach those. I mean, I do the same thing. My Irish teacher thought I worked at a smithy because I'd just looked up "workplace" in the dictionary. :)
Ahh I see what you mean, thanks again for another great explanation. The right word for the phrase- I'm starting to learn that about Swedish now! I've been enjoying learning it so much (has saved me going crazy during lockdown to be honest!) and feel now the best way to get to a really high level with the spoken side is to talk to either native Swedes or at least people who are fluent so I can listen in and learn some things and chip in when I feel confident. If anyone knows of anything on Zoom or Skype or would be interested in starting a video chat group please let me know as would be very interested. Love the DuoLingo community and some Zoom chats with people off here would be rad!
