Nice touch to have the sentence spoken so fast!

Fought with this one with the speaker going so fast and running words together, irony much!

Couldn't even come close to figuring it out :-(

Speaker is very hard to understand.

That person is very nervous and speaks too quickly over a really poor microphone or it is trick question and no one is meant to get it right. Either way, both her sentences are very poor and should be taken out and re recorded. Nae happy a va.

Why is it "leibh" but then "thu"? Surely it should be either "leat" or "sibh"? Speaker really garbled as others have said - I couldn't make it out at all

I had the same question about leibh/thu.

I agree, I must be making progress because I got this one! This is hardest speaker to understand as well. It's as if «Tha i a' bruidhinn ro luath agus ro shàmhach air a' fòn».
