I think that he is trying to say that animal is not pronoucen the same in English and Spanish. In English stress is in the first a in Spanish it is in the last a.
I think you're right. He also seems to be referring to how many Spanish words are blended together.
I think the voice is just speaking too fast, people don't really blend every other word they say, as far as I can tell from past experience.
Well, really, it seems that they are speaking fast, but to native spanish speakers, they are going at a fine temp. Full out Spanish speakers, I find, go at the same pace, if not faster. Its just something we all have to learn how to understand them...
@christiella - re: what's the difference between animal and animale?
Hola christiella. Like rspreng say, "animale" is not a word. But there is one thing both of those have in common. If you hook an, "s" on to the end of them you'll have the plural for animals in English and the plural for animals in Spanish (animales).
How could anyone get this wrong? Animal in spanish is spelled exactly like its english translation.
