Pronunciation question

So in Duolingo when there is a "ę" at the end of a word, it is pronounced like a normal "e". However, when I do supplementary listening on Glossika, SOME of the people who do the reading will pronounce the "ę" at the end of the word. So is there a catch-all or some other rule for when to pronounce it?

Rzadko kiedy mowimy bardzo wyraznie "ę'', zazwyczaj wywawiamy to jak ''e''. Tylko osoby takie ktore chca pokazac ze sa bardzo madre mowia to ''ę'' tak wyraznie.

(Nie pisze polskich znakow poniewaz korzystam z niderlandzkiej klawiatury")

@nikola7389. Zgadzam sie z Toba . Na ogol wymawia sie "e" i mysle tylko osoby z wysokim "ego" wymawiaja (e-z ogonkiem)aby dac odczuc swojemu rozmowcy, ze tylko "on" wyraza sie poprawnie.

Sorry ale ja tez nie korzystam z polskiej klawiatury i nie mam zamiaru tlomaczyc dlaczego.

Pozdrawiam:)

Cezar, the ONLY proper pronunciation when "ę" is the the end of the word is "e". It sounds funny and strange and VERY pretentiously to all when you pronounce "ę". And it DOES NOT seem to enyone you are from "higher class" but rather contrary. Noone who speaks polish properly will say "ę" at the end of a word. I'm polish belive me.

Officially there is a difference, and after you listen for a long time you will begin to pick it up. In the beginning it is very difficult to pick it up. Don't give up! It takes time and patience and is worth the effort.
