Pronounced ‘a’ or ‘ah’

is there a correct way to pronounce j’ai vs tu as.  I noticed in the audio section they pronounce dash of them as an ‘a’ sound but in the video provided I hear the j’ai as an ‘a’ sound and tu as as an ‘ah’ sound. Wondering what’s typical or if it matters.

Hi Boun,

I have changed the audio files in some of the examples as they sounded too similar and to match the sounds on the video which are correcy.  I hope you like them better and can hear the difference between -

J'ai

and

tu as

Bonne Continuation!
