You can tell from the form of the verb. If it were they, it would read: "Zij drinken de soep."

But how can you tell pronunciation wise? Zij drinkt soep sounds a lot like Je drinkt soep

Which one is correct? "eten soep" or "drinken soep"? I've seen the both sentences here.

Just hazarding a guess, but maybe you eat a chunky soup and drink a broth or bisque-style soup.

In Spanish you usually drink the soup regardless of the consistency... i wonder if this is the case in Dutch...
