Dictation exercise A1
The audio says -
...Ça va toujours très bien quand il fait beau ...
Not sure why you are hearing 'part' and not 'quand' . There is a pause between bien and quand but maybe the liaison between 'quand' and 'il' is throwing you -
it sounds like -
quantil fait beau
Hope this helps!
I have to say that, like you, I hear a "p."
I, like all the other responders, hear "part" not quand, no matter how many times I replay it and no matter how much I understand that this IS what it says. Very difficult to clearly understand this liason
Not sure if the audio has been updated, but I definitely heard quand.
I can't hear "quand". It seems like the a split second of the beginning of the recording has not been included properly.
I think somewhere there's a lesson about how "d," as in quand, sometimes sounds like a "t" to make an elision with the following vowel, as in Quand il [quan-til]. Sorry I can't put my finger on it. If I'm correct maybe someone from Kwiziq can point it out.
Yes you're right: in a liaison or enchaînement, "d" is always pronounced [t] : https://www.lawlessfrench.com/pronunciation/liaisons/
