Ihr und Er
I'm having a very hard time hearing the difference between Ihr and Er. Any helpful advice?
That’s a good way to put it. The only thing is that the German r sounds more like ah than an American r (In England, they do often pronounce rs like a German soft r)
The words sound different - when you get more German under your belt , you will hear the difference better.
ihr cannot mean them. Also, she asked about how to distinguish them by their sounds, not their meanings.
