Hello, in the video the speaker uses de liason permanently whereas the audio on the examples doesn't. Is this a regional thing?

Hi Claudia,

 I have listened to the video and the reader does make all the liaisons possible .

However, those are optional so this gives you the two possibilities.

I don't think the reader has a particular regional accent but it does sound very formal.

Whether French people make an optional liaison or not will depend on preference in the end. Some liaisons make the sentences flow better.

Hope this helps!

 

Merci beaucoup Cécile. 
Why are these liaisons optional?

Hi Johanna,

We are hoping to produce a lesson on 'liaisons' in the new year which will answer your question ...
