What is the difference between: Est-ce que vous pouvez parler un peu plus lentement? Pouvez-vous parlez un peu plus lentement?

Bonjour M L, There is no real difference between these two sentences. "Est-ce que vous pouvez parler un peu plus lentement?" may sometimes be seen as more polite than, "pouvez-vous parler un peu plus lentement?" but of course that depends on your tone. For all intents and purposes there are no differences. J'espère que cela vous aide! - I hope this helps! - Marie-Claire
