"Siete ragazze."

Hard to get right the end of the words "ragazze" and "ragazzi".

The ending "e" is like Everyone. The ending "i" is like Easter.

I can hear the difference in the voice sample, if you can't, try listening more closely.

Daaamn, siete is seven in spanish, this confuses me :D

I have the same problem, having spoken Spanish for twenty years does confuse a lot of the newly learned Italian... The problem of wanting to be a polyglot I guess.

So the siete is vosotros which in English is y'all. This is correct? Siete -> Vosotros -> Y'all.

siete means "(y'all) are". It's the second person plural conjugation of the verb "essere" (to be)

No, siete is "are" or "son" (not sure about mainland Spanish, "seis"?), voi would be vosotros (ustedes!), but as in Spanish, you don't need it, since the person is already in the verb.

YES! Y'all being my common vernacular makes this funny. Glad to see I am not alone!

can siete be used for "they are" as well as "you are" (plural)? I got this wrong b/c I wrote "they are" and I believe it should have been "correct" but it counted it wrong ... any thoughts?

pretty hard to guess the word if its introduction is in a listening excercise :)
