Hi Tammy,

I have checked and I can't hear an n' in the audio.

Hi Aaron,

I don't think the recording has been changed and it matches the script.

However, to answer your other question, yes, you could have a 'ne' there but in everyday speech, it often disappears.

Hope this helps!

Sorry, I sent that accidentally before I finished.. In this lesson, in the same question as Jack referenced, the oral recording says ' que nous n'ayons jamais regardée!' while the text says 'que nous ayons jamais regardée.' Which is correct?

You're right, the recording says "n'ayons" (at least in the recording that plays for me). I would think that it's correct without the "n' ", but that the "n' " can be thought of as an explétif in this case. However, I welcome input from a native speaker.

And now the recording has no "n' ", so either it's been changed, or it alternates between different ones.
