How to tell this is Vosotros and not Ustedes.

Could you not say Ven instead of Veis?

Hola Marc

Not sure if you are referring to a specific question in this lesson.

For a "you plural informal", as in "you guys" we use the pronoun "vosotros", and needs its conjugation, e.g "veis, vais, tenéis, vivís, etc". For a "you plural formal" we use pronoun "ustedes", with a different ending, e.g "ven, van, tienen,, viven, etc" (which is the same as the "ellos" form).

You may be referring to a different use of ustedes in Latin America where they use pronoun ustedes as an informal you plural, and they hardly use pronoun "vosotros". If that is the case, we are working towards expanding our content to Latin American Spanish, but at the moment, all our content is Spanish from Spain. 

If this is not what you were referring to, please let us know and we can explain.

Un saludo

I had the same question, in relation to the following quiz question:

Conjugate "ver" in El PresenteAre you, Carolina and Paco looking at the piglets at the farm? : ¿Carolina, Paco y tú ___ a los cerditos en la granja?

The answer was veis but I thought ven was also correct given the available information
