Hi Kathleen, 

ça (this) devrait (should) ne ... pas ( not) être (be) compliqué ( complicated)

quite literal in this case.

Bonjour à tous,

Following Jim's comment about the quality of the audio, we re-recorded this dictation exercise entirely. It should now be much clearer.

We hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Je n'ai aucune idée. Ça ne devrait pas être compliqué!

It was difficult to understand because, for some reason, the recording- perfectly clear both before and after that particular clause - suddenly goes completely muffled and incoherent.
