What is the difference between учитель and вчитель?


The pronunciation of вчитель has some extra sounds at the end of the word. My audio has this word ending in a "те" sound. Is this correct?


Here are some other examples. I'm assuming what you're hearing is the palatalization. The English "L" is one of the least palatalized sounds we have, so there's a pretty big difference in how these sounds are produced.
