"¿Por qué ellos no nos escuchan?"

Translation:Why don't they listen to us?

I have a problem hearing the female speaker, but it sounds like she is saying "es-cu-TAN or es-cu-DAN rather than escuchan." Is this the way the word is properly pronounced?

No, the ch in Spanish is pronounced like the ch in church.
This has been fixed with the female speaker at the top of the page. (1aug18)

How would "Why don't they hear us" be?

¿Por que ellos no nos oyen? ?

Cumeon: Very nearly, but the ellos is not needed. '¿Por qué no nos oyen?'

All the best.

Could this also mean "Why won't they listen to us" or would another word be needed?

This is related to Community 2 strengthening exercises: There seems to be something wrong with the Strengthen function of “Community 2”. I did a lesson on March 12/18. Apparently I needed strengthening again on March 13/18. Strengthened again on March 17/18 and March 18/18 due to prompting. However, many of the words covered are not shown this morning in the “Words” tab, for example algunos, algunas, padres, niños, conozco, conoce, usualmente, enseñar, amar and a veces, and perhaps others. It was my understanding that when words were strengthened, they would be moved to the top of the Words list. Thanks for your help!
