Little Jaaqen is that you?
Is there an easy way of hearing the difference between ι and η?
There's no difference!!
Sounds the same
I am Spanish native speaker and the sounds of these new letters in Greek sound quite similar to the sounds of my language. I think the confusion is mostly because of what kind of sounds are we use to hear in our everyday life
In a comment on another thread it was stated that έχει = he is, but here the drop down box says έχει = he has. Does έχει mean either "he is" or "he has" depending on context?
No, it's only he/she/it has. It was probably a bad typo or a mistake.
How to pronounce έχει?
Try this to listen to native speakers.
And of course the Greek Forum with a lot more information.
