If Je becomes j' with verbs beginning with a vowel..

Then how come an example is ‘J’habite à Londres?’

This question relates to:
French lesson "Je becomes j' with verbs beginning with a vowel (elision)"

Hi Ryan, 

Well spotted ...if you re-read the lesson you will see that the elision happens before vowels or a silent -h ( also known as -h aspirate) which means it behaves as if it wasn’t there at all....

This is the case for - J’habite à Londres.
