This is more of a comment than a question. My problem is that in terms of the grammar, I know all the concepts and have achieved 90% in my progress reports. I only achieved 50% for this because of the speed and liaison/elision of the speaker. For example "moins le quart" sounded to me like moinsquart. I did not pick up the "le". Another example "Le taxi arrivera vers six heures et demie", I didn't hear "vers" at all, so substituted "à" for it to make sense. I need B1 to be successful in an application for citizenship. Phew!! I've got a long way to go.

I have listened to the audio file. Indeed, the 'le' in 'moins le quart' is not as well pronounced as it could be. However, this how a true French person would say it. And in the expression 'vers six heures et demie', I found 'vers' was quite clear.
Keep listening to the audio and you'll get it. The more you train your ear to the way French is pronounced the better you'll get at hearing those little details.
