"A person is eating an apple."
Translation:Une personne mange une pomme.
Hello! here is the conjugation of verb "manger" at present tense:
je mange, tu manges, il/elle/on mange, nous mangeons, vous mangez (polite and plural), ils/elles mangent.
You should use mange when you want to say "Je mange une pomme" (I'm eating a apple) While you would use Manges like this "Tu Manges une pomme"(You're eating a apple)
I might be wrong with my sentence structure, hopefully not!
I wrote "Une personne est mange une pomme" is it was incorrect. Can anyone explain why this is wrong? thanks
In English, to mean that an action is in progress at the time you speak, you use the continuous verbal form, ie verb BE + action verb in the gerund form (-ing). o he is eating means he currently eats
In French, this verbal form does not exist (directly translated “il est mangeant” is incorrect).
Therefore, you can translate either “il mange” or “il est en train de manger”, where the construction verb être + en train de + infinitive correctly expresses the English continuous form.
