"The horse drinks milk."
Translation:El caballo bebe leche.
bebe: 3. person singular (he/she/it) drinks beben: 3. person plural (they) drink
Beben is the plural, so if there were more than one horse drinking milk, it would be: Los caballos beben leche. The verb changes according to the thing(s) doing the verb.
I'm having trouble understanding when to insert an article (e.g. "the") before certain nouns. I wanted to write: "El caballo bebe leche", for the literal translation.
But it told me I was wrong earlier for writing: "Nosotros bebon leche", earlier. Instead it wanted "Nosotros bebon la leche" ("We drink the milk"). Which sounds odd in English.
Anyone have a good rule of thumb for when to include the "the" article?
