Pronunciation of vais à

Pronunciation of vais à

In "Je vais à Paris" the s in vais is not pronnounced, but I had also undestood that when the word ends in a consonant, and the next word is a vocal, you pronounce the last letter to kinda carry the "flow", I forgot what the proper name for the rule was.

Hi Sebastian,

This liaison is actually an optional one so you will hear both in France -

Je vais // à Paris

Je vaizà Paris 

Hope this helps!

Liason is the proper term
