My question is about pronounciation-

In this example "Demain matin, je cueillerai des roses pour ma mère.", I seem to hear the ai pronounced as a soft a, much as in "tu as" am I mis-hearing it? Also, in this one "Cueillerez-vous des pâquerettes pour moi?" I hear a liason between the z and the vous." thanks

Bonjour Diana !

Some of these sound files weren't very good. Thanks to you, I've now fixed them.

Please let me know what you think!
Bonne Année !

Thank you. The reason for my question is that I am trying very hard to hear the subtle (to me) difference between ai and ais in the future and conditional. Not sure if you have a lesson on that. The new recording is good for me. thanks again

Je pense qu' il y avait  une faute dans vos corrections de mon dernier test: vous m'avez donné comme réponse correcte " tu accueilleras" ( le verbe "accueillir au futur), et moi, je l' avais écrit " tu accueilliras". Laquelle des deux est la réponse correcte?

Hi Ahtoaheta, 

You need to use the Report It button on your correction board to address your specific query.

Bonne Continuation!
