La liaison?

The audio clips don't have a clear pattern when it comes to making a liaison between "suis" and the nationalities beginning with a vowel. It this an optional liaison? What would you recommend?

Bonjour JM ! In this case, it's generally considered more elegant to do the liaison, but a lot of French people don't and it's not shocking not to do so. I would recommend to do it, if only because it makes it easier to pronounce certain cases for non-French people, such as "Je suis italien" (the double i-i might be tricky!). À bientôt !
