"You are eating a pizza."
Translation:Tu manges une pizza.
Wrong, both un and une are indefinite articles translating to "a/an" in English. un is used with masculine nouns and une with feminine ones.
Does that new course have "Tips & Notes"? If so, read them before doing the lessons.
They are different present indicative conjugations of the infinitive manger depending on the subject:
it depends on whether it is 1st or 2nd person. You need to learn the conjugation of the verb "etre" to conjugate verbs. It is a regular verb. Irregular verbs have a different conjugation.
Why not? Why is eau feminine yet chapeau masculine? There are no hard and fast rules dictating gender - it must be learnt and remembered with each noun.
Having said that, the reason most likely lies behind the word's origin - Italian - where it is also a feminine noun.
Because "manges" means are eating. It would be correct to say, " Tu manges un croissant." But "mange" means is eating. So if you said, "Tu mange un croissant." In english, you would be saying, "You is eating a croissant." It would not be correct.
uh so is 'tu manges une pizza' for girls who are eating pizza or am i just sexist?
You are just sexist. It is the noun "pizza" that is feminine regardless of who is eating it.
Why is "are"/es neglected in "Tu manges une pizza" and yet considered in english translation?
Manges = are eating, therefor you do not need es/are because it is already included in manges.
Why is it necessary to include "tu" in the translation? The answer is probably really obvious, but I'm clueless at the moment.
Some foods are feminine and some masculine. Like orange on here has been masculine but pizza feminine. This confuses me. Is there a simple way to learn the difference?
It marked it as wrong but it was right it put up the answer and the answer was the same as my answer
Whats the difference between tu and vous? mange and manges? is it wrong to say Tu es mange un pizza ?
"Tu" is 2nd person singular familiar pronoun while "vous" is 2nd person singular formal or 2nd person plural pronoun.
mange is the 1st person singular present indicative conjugation of manger - "to eat" (eg Je mange une pizza → "I am eating a pizza") whereas manges is the 2nd person singular familiar present indicative conjugation (eg "Tu manges une pizza" → "You are eating a pizza").
Yes, it is wrong to say "Tu es mange un pizza". Apart from the incorrect gender assignment of "pizza", and the incorrect "tu" conjugation of manger, one never expresses "You are eating ..." as "Tu es manges ..." as it is incorrect French. It is simply "Tu manges ..."
