The second time she says "guía" she pronounces it "Este ría". Is this common, and is there a rule for when to do this? Thanks.
Dictation exercise A1
I had a listen and it's true that the narrator pronounces the word guía slightly different, as if there was an -r somewhere there, but, no, there is no reason for that; it's simply this lady's accent. The gu- should sound as in the English gate, gammon, garlic... (no -r at all)
I also had no idea what she was saying re: este guía. Thanks for the explanation, different accents make things difficult sometimes!
