Liaison in the construction of the Conditionel Passe + aller

I listened to the video for this construction (the first video), and it sounds to me like the speaker uses liaison for every person except the 2nd person singular (tu serais aller). Do you know what rule he is following, if there is one? I have to admit, it sounds better to NOT use liaison in that particular case.

Bonjour Leslie,

That's a very interesting question! The 'liaison' between 'auxiliary' and 'past participles' is optional in French. So you may choose to do the 'liaison' or not. ;-)

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
