The question was “from the tenth to the twentieth of”. The answer said “diz”, not ‘dix’. Please explain. Thanks.
This question relates to:French lesson "Saying 'from ... to ...' + dates and times"

If I understand your question correctly, you are querying the pronunciation of 'dix' (No. 10) ?
It is more of a 'sss' sound unless there is a liaison and it will be a 'z' sound...
The number 10 on its own is pronounced, 'Dissss'.
Il a di -Z- ans = He is ten years old
Hope this helps!
Hi. Thank you for your response. Unfortunately it was not a matter of pronunciation. The written answer was actually “diz...” rather than ‘dix...’. It may have been a glitch in the system. If I come across it again I will send it to you.
