Why is 'je' eating? How does this verb work?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Senorita826208

"Je" is the 3rd person form of verb, or the 2nd person verb when talking to an authority figure. Ja jem Ty jesz On je My jemy Wy jecie Oni jedzą

(Deirdre O'Donovan) 'je' is the verb 'to eat'. Many languages do not differ 'eat(s)' and '(is/are) eating' (Not only this verb, but all (or at least many) of them)

To be completely precise the infinitive "to eat" is "jeść".
Everyday verbs are often quite irregular.

Je was similar to Jest to me :O

Дуже схожа мова на українську

In Jugo language je means (is). So they may understand it as (He is an apple). In Croatian the subj will be (On jede jabuku).

Je sounds like Romanian el/ea e, which means he/she is. A little confusing :)

I am getting confused about the verb to eat. What is 'I (am) eat(ing)', 'he (is) eat(ing)s', 'she (is) eat(ing)s', 'you (are) eat(ing)', 'they (are) eat(ing)' etc? Keep thinking I get the hang of it and then get it wrong

I noticed when the female says it she sounds like she saying "oni je" but it you touch each word it is "On je" is this just how she talks or is there something i am missing?

its probably just the woman speaking because when goung from "on" to"je" j makes a sort of yee sound making it sound like "oni"

Is that a T or an L

ł (Ł) is a variant of L.
