That's what IPA rules seem to point at. So as a native French speaker, I thought I'd have an easier time differentiating the two.
ㅔ = /e/ = é
ㅐ = /ɛ/ = è
Oh boy, I was wrong.
If this particular sentence on Duolingo is indeed "easier" for me because I can hear the difference of the female voice, 99% of the time in other exercises on Duo - or other resources and/or medias - I just can't.
Edit : The male voice on this sentence sounds like 개는 게가 아닙니다 to my french ears.
I know both sounds are supposed to more or less sound the same nowadays, yetㅐ and ㅔ sometimes sound both like /ɛ/ and sometimes both like /e/ - depending on the speaker.
It's confusing :(
