In the audio file for the sentence "Nous mourons tous un jour" in this lesson, the word "tous" has a silent s (IPA [tu]). Why is this? I understood that when "tous" is used as an indefinite pronoun to refer to a group of people like this, the s should be pronounced (IPA [tus]). Have I misunderstood something here? I would appreciate any help on this :)
Thank you for your feedback. The audio has now be updated and corrected.
I agree, I would also expect tous to be pronounced as "toos", with the final -s.
