Pronunciation of 'yeux'

AB8189

AB8189

The pronunciation of ‘yeux’ given in this lesson (https://app.rocketlanguages.com/members/products/3/lesson/5501), which sounds like it starts with a ‘z’, is inconsistent with the letters it contains and with any other guidance I can find on the Internet. It sounds like perhaps it has been trimmed from a recording of someone saying ‘les yeux’, but has spuriously included the end of the previous word?

I am glad someone else picked this up - I was also going to comment. You are correct - the pronunciation of “yeux” given in this lesson has the liaison sound (les yeux) but the printed material left out the “les”. I also have started another post regarding lesson 1.8 la liaison with être.

Salut AB8189 et ClaudetteD2 !

Thank you very much for pointing that out to us: it does indeed sound as though the liaison sound has been included in the audio by mistake! I'll pass this feedback on to the French team so that we can see about getting it sorted out straight away.

À la prochaine,

Liss
