"He is drinking the soup."
Translation:Il boit la soupe.
I'm french I don't agree, we say "Il MANGE la soupe" "he is EATING his soup". We never say 'Il boit la soupe" this should be corrected very quickly, thanks ^^
We don't say this in English either, so I think the absurdity is intentional.
"He drinks some soup" is (I'm pretty sure) the way they talk about food consumption. Il boit de la soupe.
