I agree. I think in the lesson before it corrected me when I didn't put an article and then here I added one and it also said it was a mistake.

"I eat tomato" isn't an english phrase; if I said that, I'd sound like a caveman. "I eat a tomato" suffers from the same problem.

"I eat tomatoes" or "I'm eating a tomato" thank you very much

"I eat a tomato" doesnt make you sound like a caveman. It's simply stating what you are eating. But indeed, if you leave out the article you'll look awkward.

I eat tomato. I eat lettuce. I don't eat onions. In English, we phrase it like this ALL of the time.

Why do I not need an article before tomate? It seems like sometimes you need it, but sometimes you don't.

I had that same problem. I think you should put an article before "tomate"

I don't think this is correct. I live in Costa Rica, and we always use an article before a noun. Is this program from another Hispanic country where things are slightly different?

I had the same problem regarding the article. I guess I'll report it as a problem...

Yes I think it should be "I eat tomatoes"
