At this video clip 00:13, the line in the script is 'I like what you said, Peter'.
But I can't hear that, what I heard is like 'I like what it sent, Peter'.

What do you think about this?
Thanks!

PS I also posted the same question on this, but all of your answers are unique to me. Hope we can discuss with each other. Thank you.

She says, 'I like what you said, Peter'.
Incidentally, they are speaking VERY slowly and clearly.

I don't know what to do; I heard more like this: 'I like what ESM Peter'.:-?

The only letter that's not enunciated clearly is the "d" at the end of "said" - it runs into "Peter" very quickly. It's not helped by the way she raises her voice practically to a squeak by the end of her sentence. However, Mister Micawber is absolutely right - they are speaking very slowly and clearly - in my opinion, artificially so. I get that they're attempting to make it understandable for beginners but it makes the rhythm of the language rather unnatural.
