I certainly feel like I'll need some supplementary resources for pronounciation, I haven't got the hang of it yet. Also, I wonder who is downvoting the comments? That was a perfectly legitimate question. edit: I found out there's a post about pronounciation at the discussions. oops. I'm leaving it, for there might be other lost souls out there
Måltid (neuter gender) means meal. This sentence uses mad (common gender), food. Both måltid and "meal" are also countable, which means you need an article.
Hun spiser et måltid. / She eats a meal.
Hun spiser mad. / She eats food.
Meals and food are two different ideas.
