In the audio for “Mais la ville essaie de prendre des initiatives écolos.” it sounds to me like a conjugated “prend” (i.e. silent “d”, so sounds like “pren”), instead of the infinitive “prendre”.
Dictation exercise A2
Yes, you're right. In spoken everyday French, the trailing -re of prendre is often pronounced indistinctly or even swallowed completely.
Ahhh, interesting- I didn’t know that. Thanks.
