do we add a "z" sound when the next word after "veux" starts with a vowel \ like in this example here

Yes, there should be a liaison between "veux" and "être", and sound like "veux-z-être". We'll fix this soon!

Does anyone know if there is a difference in pronunciation between "veux" and "vais". I am always wrong in listening exercises with those two... :(

"vais" ... bottom of the page for the french version....

"veux" http://www.forvo.com/word/veux/

That might help.

"Veux" sounds like "the", and "vais" sounds like "lay"
