What is the difference between "We" and "Wij"? Is it the same?

it's pretty much the same, it's like how in english of when you are saying "you", you actually say "ya" in the spoken language when you're not stressing the you. Same difference (only we have it in the standard version of our language as well) in dutch between "wij" and "we", . we being the unstressed form. 'zij' and ze, have the same logic to them, as do 'jij'' and 'je'.

'Wij' is not an English word.

That works, unless it was a type-what-you-hear exercise.
