whats the pronunciation difference between 'ces' and ses'?
EDIT: ahha now on my second try i heard it at 'c'est garcon sont impossible' now i know of course the 'sont' makes it plural, but is there a pronunciation diferent between the three. its very confusing to me.
I believe there is no difference in pronunciation between 'ces' 'ses' and 'c'est' unless there is a word starting with a vowel after e.g. 'ces enfants' or 'ses enfants' would create a z sound between the words whereas 'c'est un enfant' would pronounce the t on c'est. Otherwise you have to find the word based on context.
Ses and ces should, I believe, sound like English "say", but with a long sound like the undiphthongised French é.
C'est more often sounds like the English bet or the French bête; it's shorter than é, but this distinction may not be noticeable and is not always adhered to in speech.
