"Tu manges des fraises et du chocolat."

Translation:You are eating strawberries and chocolate.

Why does it sometimes pick up on simple spelling mistakes and sometimes not. I typed mamges instead of manges but clearly a typo.... So frustrating!

Why it uses 'des' for strawberries and 'du' for chocolate?

French uses certain articles that usually aren't translated in English. They are du, de la, de l' and des.

du is used for masculin, singular words starting with a consonant, like chocolat.

de la is used for feminine, singular words starting with a consonant, like de la soupe.

de l' is used for words starting with a vowel or an h, regardless of word gender, like de l'hôtel and de l'eau.

des is used for all plural words, like des fraises.

I said "You eat strawberries with chocolate" and it marked it as wrong. Furthermore, it said that the R, A, and W were wrong in strawberries. Y U DO DUO!

Because 'strawberries' is plural and 'chocolate' aint.

Du & Des... What is their use and where are they used? I am a bit confused.
