Suelo comer mucho - I usually eat a lot.

I got the answer right but I am not sure about the English meaning. Where does SUELO come from is it a verb? What is the infinitive? I thought “usually" is “normalmente”.

You have to think of Spanish in the same way that you do in English, meaning that there are always several ways to say the same thing. I could say "I usually eat a lot" or "I normally eat a lot" or "I typcially eat a lot". All basically mean the same thing for the most part. don't get hung up on words meaning the same thing, that (occurs/happens) in all languages.

I've been wanting to say this to a few people but could not think of a good way to put it. Well done.

Suelo could translated as "tends to", but "usually" is also correct.

one is the infinitive and the other is a congugated form. Soler is a stem changing verb.
