The commentary is simply too fast. May I suggest that you have a slower speed, in addition to the present one. Duolingo does this, and I find I need to break down the words -- then, I can play the faster speed, as I know conversations aren't done in a slow speed. But, as of now, the words simply run together and I can't discern individual words.

Hello, please can you explain why the computer gave the correct answer as étiez for the sentence:
Emile et toi étiez toujours poli.? I am confused as I thought the iez ending was only used with vous.

Certainly some of the examples here would likely be fairly soon in the future, but they all use futur simple !
