I just can't hear the difference between år and og

In this phrase, it's pretty obvious that "og" won't come straight after "et". Also "år" should not come right before "et", so the context helps. But yes, the sound is a bit sluggish.

I think år sounds more like "or" and "og" more like "ohw". If that's any help.

I also cannot hear the difference between the words morgen & måned?

The sounds in Danish seem to be pretty subtle a lot of the time, but to be "morgen" sounds like "moor'en" and "måned" sounds like "mohn'eh." If that helps.

Any tips for hearing the difference between "de" and "det"?
