Sound the same?

Is there any difference in pronunciation between Ils s'assoient and Il
s'assoit if the following word starts with a consonant? If not, how can you tell which is meant if the context doesn't make it clear?

This relates to:

Hi Melisa,

Both 'ils s'assoient' and 'il s'asseoit' sound the same.

If the context is not clear you would have to ask for clarification.

Hope this helps!
