Pronunciation

In Lesson 18.8 Irregular Imperfect Subjective, there are two phrases that I think should be pronounced the same, but the aren't.  

In one line the speaker says: Che lei fosse  and the fosse has an sh sound.
In the next line the speaker says:  Che Lei fosse  and the fosse has an s sound (not sh).

Which is correct?

Hi Catherine, 

Thank you for your question!
The slight difference in terms of pronunciation is due to the speaker, but the word itself does not change (and they are both fully understandable). However, if I really had to pick one of the two, I would use the second recording as a reference.

Hope this helps :)
