This should say "Do you eat potatoes?" instead.
I reported that the sentence as it is now (do you eat potato?) is not quite right in English.
I agree, in English we use the plural. I guess in Portuguese they use the singular, just as we might say, "Do you eat lamb?"
At least, that's accepted now.
It's not, I just got that wrong
how come the b on batata sounds like a p? is it just the audio? or are they pronbounced ps in Portuguese?
Consonantal Stop • Forming the [ B ] • [ P ] sounds has similarities but also differences • Internet searches will return many hits on teaching and learning, speaking and hearing the sounds.
Do you believe potato. That would have been so good.
your right , it would have been good
Also, the answer "You eat potatoes?" is correct. In the US, at least, it is common to eliminate the "do," especially when you want to emphasize the "you" rather than the "potatoes."
