Bonjour, Gracie ! Je m'appelle Amanda. J'ai deux corrections pour vous :

Je suis bien --> ça va bien / je vais bien. "Je suis bien" veut dire [means] "I am comfortable."

Une pomme es bien --> Une pomme est bonne. Ou peut-être "La pomme est bonne" [The apple is good].

And it's not «et tu ?» but «et toi ?».

I have no idea why someone down-voted you since all you are doing is practising your French. So, I've up-voted you and given you a lingot for your effort. Keep it up! :-)

Bonjour, Gracie ! (note the punctuation, leave a space before the "!" and "?" marks)

Je m'appelle Megan. J'étudie en français, aussi. Mais, je ne mange pas une pomme, pas maintentant. En ce moment, j'écoute de la musique.

Bonjour,

In this context, I think «Mais là, je ne mange pas de pomme.» would sound better. And «J'étudie aussi le français».

Much appreciated, but...

Okay, but why? Why the "là" as opposed to not, and why "aussi" earlier in the sentence instead of where I placed it. Merci pour toute éclaircissement que vous pouvez me fournir.

The "là" replaces the "maintenant". To me, it sounded a little bit strange to say it in this order. And for the "aussi" you can put it at the end like you have done, I just corrected the "le", even though it would sound more natural to put "aussi" after the verb.

Not sure why I was downvoted but whatever

True, I find it a bit harsh to be downvoted for pratising a foreign language :-/ It isn't easy to speak/type a foreign language and a bit of encouragement would be nice instead of downvotes, LOL. I'll upvote you for making the effort to respond to the original poster in French :-)
