I know it's old but it might help someone.
Scii means "have knowledge of" (a fact, an information, an opinion etc.)
Example: I need to have knowledge of the truth.
Koni refers to "being acquainted with" (someone, an animal, a place etc.)
Example: Sofia? Yes, I am acquainted with her.
Just say "est-see-ee", without the first E in est.
Phonetic breakdown (this always helps me):
S: S. This is where the S in the "est" comes from.
C: Ts. This is where the "t" in est and "s" in see come from.
I: Ee. This is where the two ees come from, the - is a slight pause.
Stsee-ee. It's difficult, I know.
Does anyone else think 'scii' should be changed to be more easily prononcable?

Anybody reading along should understand that it doesn't matter if anybody thinks something in Esperanto "should be changed." You can't just decide that a living language should be changed. There's no mechanism for that in living languages.
