I think the pronunciation of the "est-ce" particle is odd. Can someone tell if it is right and how would it be if not?
I'm thinking the same here. Eight months since this question was asked and no ones seems have an answer for it.
"Est-ce" should sound like "es".
You can hear native speakers [here](https://fr.forvo.com/search/est-ce/].
May someone explain why it is "How much is it" and not "How much is this" s.v.p.
Both answers are correct. "Est-ce" can be is it or is this.
Thanks, I put in "How much is this? a lot?" and it marked me incorrect, wanted to check first before reporting!
English translation is wrong
I put 'how many are there?' how would you say that?
