Hait/est pronunciation

Do "Ma soeur est Lady Gaga" and "Ma soeur hait Lady Gaga" sound the same?

Hi Ramsay, 

I am afraid it does, I have changed the audio for a better one but it is still not very clear.

If you listen to the tomatoes example there is a slight pause between je and hais which makes it clearer.

In the example, you quote it is actually brother rather than sister -

Mon frère hait Lady Gaga

which avoids the confusion between 'est' and 'hait'.

Hope this helps!
