In spoken English, we often add extra sounds between words to link our words together.
As a result, when you listen to a continuous stream of sound in English, it can be very difficult to identify the individual words.
These extra linking sounds are:
/r/ e.g. Where/r/are you?
/j/ e.g. My/j/eyes are blue.
/w/ e.g. I'm going to/w/Africa.
Listen to the example:
