It suddenly sounds like 'lechol" is now pronounced "le'echol", so with a glottal stop in between the e's. I've read somewhere in the comments before that native speakers can distinguish the aleph and ayin in speech, so can I assume this is an example? And how would an ayin sound differently from an aleph? :)

Ayin would come from deeper in the throat.

Any chance of Duolingo giving us examples to compare? :)

Very few people make a distinction between the two
