Ellos/ellas are both correct because you cannot know from the English word 'they' who they are, male or female.

Can you just say "Leen." or would/could that have a different meaning?

https://www.duolingo.com/gracethegiraffe

Yes... I learnt the most of my Spanish from school and we never really bothered with all the "ellos" or "yo" stuff. As long as you have changed the verb to have the correct ending, you should be fine! Good luck with learning the rest of Spanish!

I put ellos leen, and it was correct.. but I'm confused on why ustedes leen doesn't work/ellos leen

https://www.duolingo.com/TresAnna

Ustedes leen doesn't work because Ustedes means y'all, it doesn't mean they.

whats the difference between Ellos & Ellas.?

5 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Aim4Purrfection

Ellos is "they" if all of the members of the subject are masculine, or if there is one guy in the group, even if there are like 20 females. Ellas is "they" if all of the members of the subject are strictly female.
