Is there a difference in pronunciation between "jou" and "jouw"? Please do not post a link because I can't usually open them on the app.

Yes there is a subtle difference in pronunciation. Even though you don't want a link I'm going to put it here anyway because it is a good website to check pronunciation:

"Hij hoort je" would be correct. You do need the proper conjugation of the verb.

Sorry, it's my fault. I now that there is "t". I wanted to ask on "je". I translate it as "Hij hoort je", but it was mistake - righ answer was "jou".

Did you forget the "t" in "right" on purpose as a joke? Because that would be funny.

I understand the difference in pronunciation, but what is the difference in how jou and jouw are used?
