Spoken words sometimes unclear (French)

I have found difficulty on occasions with the text from the 'spoken' words section 'What do you hear?' I either skip or write what I think I hear. Then when I read the answer it often sounds nothing like it ! Help

French is difficult because it doesn't sound the way it's spelled and many times words run together in what are called liaisons. This is why vous avez sounds like vou zavey. It just takes practice to recognize it. Use turtle speed on all the questions and listen carefully and you'll start to get it.
