What is the sound difference between ㅅ and ㅆ ?

Seriously I can't say 사 properly for the life of me. .-. I need a video of someone saying it, if you have it. Thanks!

ㅆ is your regular S sound in English, and ㅅ is like an S with more air coming out of your mouth, almost like there's a hidden H in there.

Check this short video, starting at 2:43 if you just want the sound.

Or you can try pronouncing the word "Sahara" but make the first A very short, almost inaudible, and you'll get closer to this S-h sound.
