sorry I made a misstake
not they are eating
right is you are eating

I am eating = ich esse
you are eating = du isst
he ist eating = er isst
we are eating = wir essen
you are eating = ihr esst
they are eating = sie essen

"Du isst" is when you speak to one person (who is eating)"Ihr esst" when you speak to more than two persons (who are eating).

"Du isst" ist die Einzahl, also nur eine Person, die isst. "Ihr esst" ist die Mehrzahl und sagt, dass viele Personen essen.
