Good French, bad answer on this site. Especially in response to someone who wants to know the difference between élèves and étudiants.
I remember something about if you are referring to a profession/occupation, you say we are or they are or she is [occupation] without articles. Unless it's singular, in which case you can either have no article or say "a [occupation]"
holy cow this this word is pronounced horribly. wether that is the robot or the way it's just pronounced. you have to wonder how french kids learn to spell. I am guessing phonics never worked here. "e zits we jump" that's what I hear after 20 plays
Google is not accurate. It is compulsory in french to bound the pronociation of sommes and etudiants. S is then pronounces like Z and it sounds like one word: "somzetudian".
There surele is a liason. What I wonder is why in this case you don't use "Nous sommes des étudiants", it makes sense since they seem to use "de" before most collective nouns.
