Lessons (definite article usage)
I've taken Spanish and am fluent in French and in general, the definite article relates to a plural in English: i.e., I like apples.
When I do this, the lessons tell me I am wrong and dock me points for not saying "I like the apple" for example. Both ways are write, but my answer is more like what a native speaker would say, whereas it's wanting me to sound like a direct translation.
Is there any way to get around this?
