There has been a constant confusion between the pronunciations of "Er" and "Ihr". How do we resolve this problem?
I am was you to the ungerman ears they can sound similar, but can't you deduce that from the conjugation of the verb for example if it was "Ihr" it would be "Ihr habt" not "Ihr hat", hat is for er/sie/es.
Ich habe. Du hast. Er hat. Sie hat. Es hat. Wir haben. Ihr habt. Sie haben. (THEY)
I heard "ihr" and just didn't understand why she was saying "hat" instead of "habt". Couldn't even imagine that it was "er". Really, how to differ the pronunciation of these words without the context?
