Hi, I initially wrote "j’ai ouvert la porte" but the last syllable of ouvert seemed to be held a really long time, almost like ouvert à la porte.

I knew that making it imperfect and adding the "à" didn’t make sense but…. Too funny  

Is that pronunciation common?

Thanks, K

Hi K ,

I have just done the dictation and 'j'ai ouvert la porte' is correct and the sound is good so I am not quite sure what your question is ?

Hi Cécile,

Thanks. Problem solved.

I’ll just keep listening to the dictations.
