il manges VS ils mangent

il manges beaucoup de riz VS ils mangent beaucoup de riz ::: are they supposed to sound the same?

Yes. For many verbs, the singular and plural 3rd person will sound exactly the same, and you'll need to rely on context to figure out the subject. Most of the time, it won't be too difficult to tell, though it could become an issue for the context-less lessons of Duolingo.


yes they would sound exactly the same
