How can someone say zee without it sounding like jee?
They sound similar, also I’m talking about the letter name z and g not the sound they make.

Z is pronounced with the bottom and top teeth together and the air forced out between them. It's a bilabial fricative, in linguistic terms. "G" is pronounced with the tongue on the alveolar ridge behind the teeth. It's a stop- the air is stopped behind the teeth and then let out. If you add the "ee", the vowel sound is continuous, but the "g" isn't. Try just saying "zzzzzzz" and "g" and you'll feel the difference.

Pronounce it like the "z" in "zero" and there won't be any problem.
