The difference between ъ and ь
These two letters are silent. They don’t make any sound by themselves.
ъ - hard sign
ь - soft sign
First of all, both of those signs work as separation signs. In order to understand the difference you should listen to the following words, using Google Translate:
сел        лёд
съел      льёт
In addition to the separation job soft sign does something else – it softens the previous consonant:
мол     тонко
моль    Тонька

It's just a female name.

What is Тонька? Does this word exist?

In both words: шесть and шест the syllable ше is pronounced exactly the same way.
I have a good ear - I don't hear the difference.
