My Danish skills are at the level where I can usually puzzle out the meaning of a newspaper article, even though I won't understand most specialized words. I took a quick look at some pages of a Danish crime novel and I could follow what was happening, though I again did not understand many words.
Would reading such a text be beneficial for learning the language, given my current level of understanding? What skills, in particular, would it teach me? I would not, in general, use a dictionary or otherwise check unknown words.
