How do you know if this question is "are there (any) students?" VS "Are they (them) students?"

    "Are there (any) students?" would be «Чи є (якісь) студенти?», this question won't have «вони».

    Am I hear wrong? I heard there is a (is) sound between вони and студенти, then I follow what I heard to say. another question is the pronounce of в, it sometimes hear like v, and sometimes like b, sometimes is it the sound between b and v.

    I think the word you're mistaking for "is" is just the second half of вони. It's a two-syllable word.
