In the spoken text for 3.30 it sounds like the 't' in est is being pronounced. Il es t-heureux is what I hear. But for 3.38 (Robert est heaueux) the 't' is silent. Is this because 3.38 is about a specific person?

Hi there, it is more common to combine the three words so that they sound just like "Ileteureux". This is because every language has to be efficient and speakers usually try to speak fast and therefore often swallow syllabus. However, depending on the accent (and the mood of the speaker :wink: )you will also hear "Robert est heaureux" spoken like three seperate words. You might have noticed that Ceciles accent is different to Pauls which is different to the one in the Learning Guide.
