"Él come pollo o pescado."
Translation:He eats chicken or fish.
that's right . i used to have a teacher teaching me spanish and she said "b" in spanish is often pronounced with a mixture of "v" . it is something just between. yes i think the pronounciation in duolingo is a bit strange. i tried learning english just for fun and its pronunciation was not quite satisfying
Because you're learning tenses later on, this is more basic. You will learn tense conjugations later. Each action verb changes based on tense and (sometimes) the gender of the subject. "I eat (Yo como)" is easier to learn verses present tense "I am eating (Yo comiendo)". The harder stuff comes later. You have to learn the proper usage of the basic words before the conjugated versions.
There is only one subject in this sentence. Typically in statements (there are exceptions) the subject is stated before the verb, so you conjugate the verb according to that, which would be "él" in this sentence. "Pollo" is the object in this sentence, not the subject. The object is what is receiving the action, it answers the question "what/who", it typically goes after the verb in English. In this sentence it would be like saying "He eats (what?)" The answer to the "what" would be chicken, therefore that is the direct object of the sentence. Hope that helped! It's a bit confusing, it takes time to get used to learning the different parts of a sentence.
