I think there is a similar thing in Europe with the letter Z where it is pronounced like "Zed". Correct me if I am wrong

As far as I know it's only some English dialects eg American English that say "zee". Most other languages, including English, say something closer to "zed"

Well yes, German does pronounce “Z” as “Zett”, so I guess there is also a language which pronounces it with the softer ending “Zed”

That would be english.

Well, I know that you can pronounce it “zee” or “zed” but i’m never sure with one is british english and which is american english. but maybe i can memorize it this time 😂

English is zed. Simplified English is zee.

As an aid to your memory, have this funny phrase

“You’re off your ‘ead, zed”

Literally every other English speaking country other than the US. Including Canada.

"Zed" is still considered one syllable right? Or were you just commenting on how letters have different names in different countries?
