"Elles voudraient parler en fran├žais."

Translation:They would like to speak in French.

is there a difference in pronunciation between "elle voudrait" and "elles voudraient"? I was marked wrong for the singular but when I listened a second time I still could not tell why it was plural.

You should know now that "elle" and "elles" sound alike and that -ai(t) and -ai(ent) sound the same.

Very sadly, homophones are not automatically treated by Duolingo and we have to disable the audio exercise, report the sentence and wait for the developers to find the time to apply their special filter so that alternative versions are accepted. Then, we can enable the dictation exercise again. The whole process can take months.

Even more sadly, the "type what you hear" exercise was duly disabled weeks ago.

Have got the same result with "elle - singular". Pity!
