How do you know it isn't 'Ihr ist ein Kind'?

Er is more like 'air', and 'ihr' is more like 'ear'.

What is the difference between " Er ist ein kind " and " es ist ein kind " ?

same as between "he is a child" and "it is a child". In the first sentence you know the gender of the person referred to.

So the fast version sounds like "Ist ein Kind" which is what I typed when I got this wrong. With the fast version, I only hear three syllables. Why is that? Is it common to mush these two syllables together in this case, or are these two recordings different? In the slow version, I hear four syllables "Er ist ein Kind." But the fast version autoplays, and I only listen to the long version if I don't understand what the short version said... in this case... hmm.

Kinda confused about whether the fast sample is broken, or if I am:)
