Nous habitons

Nous habitons

In the video when explaining "we live" she did not pronounce the 's' at the end of 'nous.' Because the 'h' in 'habitons' is silent, shouldn't the 's' in 'nous' be pronounced?


Thank you!

Hi Charlie J,

I have listened to the video and you are correct.

She doesn't liaise between the nous and habitons, although she does with vous habitez which is odd.

But as this is a third-party resource, we can't do anything about it.

I think the tutor was just trying to stress that in the -s in the  'nous' isn't normally sounded unless it is in a liaison but she should have done the same for the vous, I feel to be consistent.

Anyway, hope this explanation helps!
