I couldn't hear her! Why is she so quiet on this particular phrase? Is it just me? I just left Spanish and came over to Italian and I cannot hear on this phrase.

Agreed. The voice is way too quiet on many of the recordings.

Question: what is the difference between 'sei' and 'siete'? Both are conjugated from the Italian word 'esere' (to be), and both are used in conjunction with 'tu' to convey 'you are'... but what's the difference? Can anyone enlighten me?

Tu sei un ragazzo. Singular you. You are a boy.

Voi siete ragazzi. Plural you. You are boys.

(The verb is "essere" with two S) ;)

but plural children..always uses masculine...so siete ragazzi could be boys...or children unless you delinieate with context...
