French Language/liaison ou pas

Question
Caro,

The following phrases are from a novel I am reading (Elle s'appelait Sarah, by de Rosnay). Please tell me if you would make the liaison in speaking:

quand tu étais au téléphone
sans oser me regarder
sur ce qui leur était arrivé

Thanks.

Mike

Answer
Hi Mike

Excellent book, the book was adapted as a movie too with Christin Scott Thomas.
Yes you should make the liaison for the three. I am realizing that I have a tendency to forget the liaison in "quand tu étais au téléphone", which is a mistake, but really I do not know why.


I hope this helps

Cheers

Caro
