Is it my computer speakers or do the french have enunciation problems?

From my speakers, "Bonne nuit les enfants," sounds exactly like, "Bonne nuit le enfant." Is there a distinguishable difference when a real person says it? Its not just those words. It seems like the correct enunciation in french is to start saying the word then stop halfway through. "Mangent" sounds like "mangeons" because they are pronounced 'manjzaw'. I will listen to the computer say a word ten times before I guess what it is saying...9 out of 10 times my guess is wrong because of a word that was not fully enunciated. I feel like I could say, "fa va ca no un va fa fa," and a french person would answer. Its not that bad, but you get the point.
