I am hearing the gentleman say Dix-sept "sous" soixante seize, not "dix-sept cent soixante seize. Am I right?
This question relates to:French lesson "Expressing dates in French"
He definitely says : dix-sept cent soixante seize but, I agree, the 'cent' is a bit indistinct. It may help if you play it at a higher volume.
Maybe it would help if kwiziq had the ability to slow down the audio?

He actually says -
'Mille sept cent soixante seize' not dix sept cent but I do agree that it is a bit different from the other ones.
He definitely doesn't say 'sous'.
Hope this helps!
You are correct and the second example which I missed sounds like 'sous' .
it has been fixed...
Very interesting conversation !
I listened to the "dix sept cent" example myself, and does hear "cent" :) But I agree that it is a bit muffled, so I've updated the audio to a clearer version :)
I hope that helps!Bonne journée !
