Pronunciation of “on ressent”

In the lesson above the audio for “On veut qu'il sache ce qu'on ressent.”. Sounds out the “ent” part of “ressent”. I was expecting to hear just “resse”. Could you comment?

Hi Brian, 

The pronunciation of 'ressent' is correct ( sounds like ressant) . The verb is 'ressentir' ( to feel) and the conjugation in the present tense is -

je ressens

tu ressens

il/elle/on ressent

nous ressentons

vous ressentez

ils/elles ressentent

on ressent is the third person singular 

Hope this help!

The -ent in ressent is pronounced without the trailing -t, just like you would pronounce en by itself: ress-en (t)
