for real im tryin to hear all the words but its to fast

You are only level 3. Believe me, it will get easier but you need to persevere. If you are trying to get used to the sound of the words then turn off your mic (this will increase the number of other exercises) and, if you get a "type what you hear" click on "Can't listen now". Those exercises will be turned off for an hour.

Another tip, don't rush through the tree. Stay on one skill until the words are clear in your head. I am currently doing the Italian for English speakers course and I max out every skill - the whole 5 crowns - before moving on. I highly recommend you do likewise if you are struggling.

Bon courage !

The audio here pronounces "es un" as "eh-zuh" and "suis une" as "swee oohn", but google translate pronounces "es un" as "eh un" and "suis une" as "swee-zoohn".

Do we pronounce the ending 's' only for es, suis, both, or neither?

My understanding is both of these examples should pronounce the Z, because they are words ending with "s" followed by a word starting with a vowel.

No, you do not pronounce the "s" at the end of either word, it is silent.

Nous sommes
Vous êtes

oh sorry i meant i can't hear them well and i think that they for the test out they should also have a cant hear button like on the lesson though i dont understand why for male "a" is "un ..." unlike females where it is "une..."

March 28, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Ripcurlgirl

The sound is fine my end. By the way, all French nouns are gendered, masculine or feminine. When you learn new vocabulary it is wise to learn it's gender as well as it's translation.

April 23, 2018

et is a conjunction meaning "and" while es is the the 2nd person singular present indicative conjugation of the verb être (to be) and means "are".

Et is and not like the and but it is like she and he, girl and boy. Une fille et un garçon. And es is are like you are a boy, like Tu es un garçon. Tu es une fille.
