I'm confused.

Ils sont (you only say " son ")
Ils veulent (you say " veul' ")
Ils viennent (you say " vienn' ")

right??

but if theres a vogal after this verbs? do you speak it all, like joining the words? like:

Ils sont assis (sontassi)
Ils veulent a..... (veulenta....)
......

is it that way?

and when do i pronounce "plus" like "Plus" and like "Plu"? it's rare but sometimes people say "Plus" but 95% of the times i've heard "Plu" .

You're right!


The problem with 'plus' is that the same word means something and its opposite Shocked

Je n'ai plus d'eau (the final s is silent)
I have no more water

Il me faut plus d'eau (the final s is not silent)
I need more water
