voice does not start with tha


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jim782624

typing what I hear there is no tha at the start of that sentece.

No tha for me either

Agree that the initial "tha" isn't there.

Im in no way an expert at all n yes it does sound as though she is saying 'an seomar' but if you look at the rest of the sentence by my understanding is 'Tha' means the word 'is' is in the sentence so it couldn't read as the terribly warm bedroom as 'seo' is in the sentence so would be 'This' room 'is' terribly warm..

Please someone let me know if I am completely wrong so I can adjust my thinking :)

Holy cow, she speaks uabhasach luath

It definitely sounds as if the recording was cut in the wrong place. I never get it right in the first run. I may be wrong, but "this terribly warm room" would make sense, too. Therefore I would really appreciate a complete recording. Obviously it is not only me - I never trust my ears - but other learners as well who have this problem.

Would that not be 'an seòmar uabhasach blàth seo' ?

Really no "tha" at the start. Too fast!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NanettePat

I agree, no tha


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Rowan800494

No, I can't hear 'tha' either.

Took a couple of attempts to hear the 'tha' but also thought it should be there, which helped pick it up

Can't hear tha

Same issue as others...didn't hear the "tha" at the beginning and she is speaking very fast!
