Pronunciation of the double 's'

For the pronunciation of 'finissons' and 'finissez' (or 'choisissons' and 'choisissez'), does the double s sound more like a 's' or 'z'?

Bonjour Katie,

The double ss is always pronounced [s]. You can hear those conjugations pronounced here:

A single s may be pronounced [s] or [z], depending on the letters around it.

For more info, please see S pronunciation.
