In englisch it is "men" right? The app tells me it s fault and have to write man
do you pronounce the -m at the end of 'homem' ? the audio doesn't seem to and wonder if this is correct?
The -m and -n at the end of syllables aren't pronounced. Instead, they nasalize the preceding vowel. At the end of a word, -em is pronounced as a diphthong /ei/, as in "day", but nasalized.
The closest in English would be the word "main" for the final syllable -mem: /aw.main/.
