Prounounciation/Listening of word endings/beginnings

When I try to pronounce or listen to something, where there the ending letter of a word is the same as the starting of the next it seems to me like they are combined into one or nothing happens to differentiate between them.

For example 'Tudo o que quer'. The 'tudo' & 'o' sound as if they are one word.

Is this just as a result of me not listening closely enough/not having enough practice speaking at such a quick pace or is it a rarity.

    Hey Timmy,

    Your ears are fine! Lol! This is the most common way of pronunciation here in Brazil.
    This will start happening when you get more practice and speed when speaking.

    It's the same when you say, for example "one eye".
