Hi Bethany.Special! No, the accented é sounds different from the e that means and.
Accented é -- sounds like the one she is saying at the normal speed, close to the a in the English words as, back, and lavender.
Normal e -- sounds like what she usually says at slow speed: like the "e" in Bend, Emma, Embarass, Exactly, . The accented ê sounds this way as well.
Describing sounds is always difficult, but I hope it helps! =]
É sounds like bEll
E sounds like wAy (some regions of Brazil say it with the sound of "i", like in "mE")
I've only heard it sound like "i" after "d" or "t", and at the end of words.
(que/qui, dente/denn-chi, chocolate/chocolah-chi, tiara/chi-ara, mendigo/men-gee-go). Is that what you mean? =]
Those are like that, but I'm talking about the word "E", like in "eu E você".
Sounds like "eu ee você"
