I'm struggling with the pronunciation of живёт. I understood B was pronounced like a V in English, yet here is sounds more like the г character... is something else in the word modifying this, or is it just a peculiarity of this particular word?
I think the audio is really messed up in this one. I'm American, but I can understand Russian pretty well, especially in these exercises, and this sounds nothing like живёт. You can hear several native pronunciations of this word here: http://forvo.com/word/живёт/#ru
