how do i distinct the pronociation of "ragazzi"and “ragazze”？
i can never tell the difference of these two words，it drives me crazy
The pronunciation of "ragazzi" ends with an "ee" sound..."ragazz-ee" and "ragazze" has an "eh" sort of sound, like "ragazz-eh"..kind of in between an "aye" and "eh" sound but I think it leans more towards the "eh" sound. It is kind of hard to write out sounds but I hope this helped a little?
When we sang in Latin, they would tell us that e was pronounced like the English letter A, but not with the diphthong at the end (You know how if you draw out the letter A, it sounds like AAAAEEEE, you just lop off the EEE part.
yeah, that absolutely helped,thanks ! i'll try again on the software, hope it will recognize my different pronociations this time
Ragazzi ends with an "ee" sound, as described by DeutscheMaus, while the "e" at the end of Ragazze has the exact same sound as the first E in "elite" (loanword from French, American pronunciation.).

While your explanation of the difference between the two words is logical, in reality the speaker seems to pronounce them identically. She sort of bites off the ending and it is virtually impossible to hear the vowel. - At least for me. So I keep getting it wrong because I am guessing what she is saying!
