It is difficult to hear the difference between "Er" and "Ihr" in the slow spoken words. They are drawn out too long.
I read this elsewhere on Duolingo lessons; "er" sounds like "air" in a British accent, while "ihr" sounds like "ear" in a British accent, instead. Reading them that way helped a lot toward me understanding the difference.
That would be very helpful, but in this sentence "er" sounds a lot like "ear" to me.
I too couldn't decide until i saw 'trinkt' which is generally used for third person singular
No ''ein'' or ''der''. Why is that?
It is very difficult to distinguish between Er and Ihr - even in turtle time. Please avoid these types of questions - having to lose a heart when you do actually know how to conjugate er trinkt and ihr trinkt is frustrating - just because the computer generated voice is misleading.
I wrote ihr trinkt Saft and that is surely correct for you drink juice. I don't understand why it was wrong and why it had to be he drinks juice!
When do you know when it's he/she is drinking juice and he/ she drinks juice?
