Problem with hearing elle / elles ?!

Hi everyone,

i really have a problem to differentiate between "elle" and "elles" ... as i see, its actually identically pronounced and it depends on the verb - but the endings are also very hard to hear (wether it's elle or elles) - any tips for me to learn how to manage hearing a difference? i really made a lot of misstakes just because of hearing singular, but she is speaking in plural.. mh :/ thanks, and sorry for bad english -.-

if you cannot decide on the basis of the article nor the verb, go to the rest of the sentence. elle porte SON verre elles portent LEUR verre

Indeed, with son/leur it is easy - didn't got these pronouns in my lessons yet. Well, thanks.
