While I understand the difference in meaning, it's hard for me to differentiate on audio exercises. Any tips? Thank you.

May I ask why I have two negative votes? Did I do something horribly wrong? Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure myself, but in my opinion, I do not see this vote as worthy of a downvote. I've noticed that a lot of recent posts were swiftly downvoted. Whether by coincidence or not, I'm uncertain.

There are some troll kids that spam the forums.. Looks like the Mods are doing a great job of removing spam quickly .. But i don't think they can also fix the votes..

Think of a "yay" type of saying for "Wij" and "Zij", and an short "e" type of sound for Ze and We I've got the hang of it now...

I'm at Level 20 and I still don't know why I get dinged for "jij" when Duo wants "je" or the other way around- maybe I should find out why?

Maybe they're asking for je as in 'your'?
