Est and Et. They sound the same??
How can I tell when it is est or et? Please help, Many thanks!
Most of the time, yes, although there should be a difference: "est" like "è" (père in French, bear in English) and "et" like "é" (sorry, can't find an English equivalent).
You may want to try this to hear the difference: go to Google/Translation, pick French-English, type "est, et" on the French side and click the small loudspeaker: she says it well.
