Not clear recording

In this sentence, I cannot hear the "d'œil"

Le vétérinaire a jeté un coup d'œil rapide à sa patte,

Hi Dragana and Craig,

I have listened to the recording and d'œil is there but very fast and melts with 'rapide'. 

If others feel they don't hear it, I can suggest I re-record.

me neither!

If you keep practicing, your brain will be able to think in "expected phrases" rather than individual words. Jeter un coup d'oeil is a very common phrase and if you pick up on jeté un coup... you're already expecting to hear d'oeil. Without that, your chances of missing d'oeil are a lot higher.

Agree that it is there but that phrase is said quite quickly. Maybe a little slower at this level would be good.
