Pronunciation of tu es

Pronunciation of tu es

In the examples above the es in "tu es" is pronounced like the ê in êtes and also like the e in et. Is there a rule for which pronunciation to use when? Or is it more of a regional difference?

Hi David,

The 'es' of  'tu es', is pronounced more of with an accent grave sound like est rather than et which is more acute.

I have changed the audio so hope you like them better.

Bonne Continuation!
