    connected speech - doesn't it

    Please help me with the following. I am trying to recognise the phrase "doesn't it". Could you please listen to the record and say whether you think is my weak point to work on. A British speaker said that phrase. Thank you.

    Native speakers would recognise that question tag, but not many learners would. It was very shortened in what was very informal speech. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
