Translation:El maestro bebe jugo de tomate.
why isn't "maestra" acceptable? They don't say if it's a female or male.
La maestra was accepted
i tried but it didn't work!!
it is acceptable... maybe you used the wrong article for it?
'El maestro' or 'La maestra' both are acceptable.. did you use 'El maestra' by mistake?
Why is "el jugo de tomate" incorrect? I thought the definite article is used for general statements.
Same problem with me .. "el jugo" I don't know what's the difference.
El jugo de tomate would be correct if you are speaking of a particular juice. But if you just want to say, he drank a juice, not the juice is él bebió jugo de tomate
why isn't it jugo del tomate
Jugo del tomate would be a juice made of a particular tomato: juice of THE tomato
When I put la maestra as a translation option for the teacher in a previous question, it said incorrect, so when this question included la maestra as an answer, I didn't check it... now it says I'm wrong because la maestra is a possible option.
Me too! Can "the teacher" be masculine or feminine? Maybe the other question needs to be flagged as needing a correction???
maestra is a woman teacher, maestro is a man teacher. Profesor is a man teacher, profesora is a woman teacher.
Is it el maestro, la maesta?
¡Quiero un vaso de jugo de tomate!
how is "el maestro bebe jugo de tomate" correct?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Juice with ONE tomato..??
No. In this kind of sentences you always use singular: jugo de tomate, jugo de pera, jugo de manzana, jugo de naranja, etc.
You are explaining the concept just like in english. jugo de tomato (the) juice of a tomato=tomato juice. We don't say tomatoes juice, and neither do they.
"El maestro bebe zumo de tomate" what is "zumo"?

Zumo de tomato? What is that?

why is "se bebe" not acceptable but in the context, "se come" is?
When I get it wrong and it tells you the right answer it is the answer i picked in the first place
The reason it counts it wrong is because you can select more than one..
When do I use "de"?
In this case here, whenever you want to make a compound noun:
I'm spanish and i don't say "jugo" I say "zumo"
