So is 'ele' like 'ellas' in spanish and 'ei' is like 'ellos'?


Do you use “ei” for groups of men and women, like “ellos” in Spanish?


Does this mean a group of boys and girls? or they are boys and girls at the same time??XD?


XDD they re seperate groups


So how to you say for a group of mixed ppl?


Why is "sunt" used? In the singular wouldn't it be Ea este fată si el este băiat?


Yes, but this is not singular, it's plural. Maybe the verb confused you. The form of the verb is determined by the person, of which there are six:

1st person singular (eu / I) 2nd person singular (tu / you(sg)) 3rd person singular (el,ea / he,she)

1st person plural (noi / we) 2nd person plural (voi / you(pl)) 3rd person plural (ei,ele / they)

Usually, there are 5 verb forms. The 3rd person plural often has the same verb form as the 3rd person singular (as in: el mănâncă, ea mănâncă, ei mănâncă, ele mănâncă BUT eu mănânc) but there are also verbs where the 3rd person plural has the same form as the 1st personen singular (eu sunt, ele sunt, ei sunt BUT el este)


The audio says the same gender for both Ele...


the translate on game says Ele means They/them and Ei means Her/To her. Though some say Ele is femine and Ei is masculine, anyone?


"Ei" has multiple meanings, in this case it is they (maskuline). In other context it can mean hers or to her.

Pantoful ei este roșu. Hennes sko är röd. Ei au un pantof roșu. De har en röd sko.


Wow, baieti (sorry no accents right now) even sounds like boys (or at least boyaz).


What is the difference between ele and ei?


Both mean They Ele-feminine Ei-masculine


Also if you are talking about a group of male and female persons together, you use EI


When I click on Ele it says They/them but when I click on Ei it says Her/to her Is that like transformers pronouns?


In english there is a single form for IIIrd person(they) plural but in romanian ele is IIIrd person pl. for feminine and ei for masculine.


They are girls and boys


Actually, if you read across, you get: "They are girls and they are boys." -DL wants us to learn how all the words in a sentence work in a language; I hope that this is helpful.


I'm picturing two groups. Girls one side and boys the other. In your answer the two groups are mixed.
