I believe my translation of this sentence can also be correct. I wrote "I am not drinking and not eating."

I'm a real novice but what you say makes more sense as the program's translation is a sure way to starve to death if taken literally! Otherwise it doesn't sound like very good english!

As part of a larger sentence it could work: for 24 hours I don't eat and don't drink

Hello! The pronunciation of "beau" seems to be incorrect on this course. However, a decent pronunciation can be found here. The second clip is the clearest.

the person involved is apparently in the Ramadhan period when one doesnot drink nor eat during daylight time...

my translation was : i do not drink nor do i eat.....marked as wrong!! however this translation is proper english/english!!

It would be correct if the sentence was "nu beau și NICI nu mănânc"
