"Tú comes queso."

Translation:You eat cheese.

Why is there an "s" at the end of "comes?" I thought it was just "¿tú come queso?"

It's based on the conjugation:

Comer = to eat

(yo) como = I eat

(tu) comes = You eat

(él/ella/Usted) come = He/She eats

(nosotros) comemos = We eat

(ellos/ellas/ustedes) comen = They eat

Without the words in brackets, the different forms of the verb comer would still have their meanings. The different forms hold possession:

Comer = to eat

como = I eat

comes = You eat

come = He/She eats

comemos = We eat

comen = They eat

Hope this helps.

Because there are different ways to say the verb. If it was Yo, it would be como. And tú would be, comes.

Its because its a *congagated version of comer. comer has its ending (er) changed depending on who is doing the action. Yo como. Tu comes. El, ella, usted come. Nosotros comemos. Vosotros or ustedes comen. And finally ellos, ellas comen

*i know its probably spelt wrong. I just suck at spelling

Why does tu have an accent if it is only one syllable?

I'm sure you know this by now, but I'll answer for others who may come along with the same question.
One-syllable words will have an accent mark if there is an identical word (without the accent mark) that has a different meaning:
Tú - you; tu - your.
Sí - yes; si - if.
Él - he; el - the.
Té - tea; te - you.
And others. :-)
