Pronunciation of "ont" before a vowel as in "Ils ont un bébé." In the lesson, the speaker did not pronounce the "t" before the "un." Is that normal?

Hi Daniel,

I have changed the recording to enable a liaison between the -t of ont and the -u of un.

But it is an optional liaison so you will hear both.

Making this type of optional liaisons can sound precious.

Most people would probably not do this particular liaison in everyday speech.

Bonne Continuation!
