Is Їсте ви мед? not correct? or is there no inversion in Ukrainian questions?

There is no strict order words so any order is technically right. However, inversion like that can only be found in poetry and it is my much more natural to make question just by intonation.

'їм' Is for I eat/I am eating and 'їсте' is for you/plural eat.

So in French. We don't drink honey, we eat it. Put in some liquid (like tea for ex.) We "take" honey with ...

Is the "ви" required? It's marked wrong without it.

How can one 'eat' honey ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Vinnfred

With a spoon? :)

It's still drinking, honey is a liquid.

It's liquid when fresh, later it becomes crystallized. Anyway, don't know about the English-speaking world, but nobody in Ukraine drinks soup or honey. It's only drinking when you put it in a cup and can drink it without help of any other tool

Living in the US - and having lived in western Ukraine - no one here drinks honey, either. You eat it, regardless of how liquid it is.
