I'm studying the long a sound at the beginning of the words and in the list of words with this sound there are two words that I couldn't recognize as long a sound . They are ancient and angel. I've heard many times and what I could hear is the a at the beginning like e in Portuguese something like enchient and engjel ( it 's hard for me to explain a sound in written ) . Could you really hear ancient and angel as long a sound ( something like ei in Portuguese , as in the words able , ate , agent , in this words the long a ( ei ) is clear for me but ancient is not pronounced as eichient , is it ?
here is the link where I heard the sound , can you check this out for me ?
