The speaker is pronouncing this sentence correctly. The speaker is using liaison : when a word that has a usual silent ending is followed by a word that has a vowel sound or a silent 'h'. "es" has a z sounds and the 'n' in the word "un" is pronounced because the 'h' in "homme" is silent. The sentence sounds like "Tu ez uhn uhmme"
