"You are drinking coffee."
Translation:Vous buvez du café.
This question is fill in the blank, and for me it says the answer is "Tu bois du cafe" but doesn't have "tu" or "bois" as an option.
Theoretically, it should be "de + le café" with the meaning of "some coffee, ie an undefined quantity of a non countable thing".
But de+le is contracted to "du", always.
In feminine: de la soupe
Could someone please explain why is it "du" and not "le"? (and what this has to do with Places?!) Thanks :)
"du" means "some" (see above).
In French coffee and café are one and only word: café. Hence the word "coffee" in this sentence, for you to realize that we use the same word for coffee and café.
Please re. conjugation of verb BOIRE:
- je bois, tu bois, il/elle/on boit, nous buvons, vous buvez (polite & plural), ils/elles boivent.
