Connected speech involves linking words together through blending sounds in spoken language. Blending is generally thought of as an advanced skill for second language learners, though there is no real reason why it can’t be learned at any level.

Mark Hancock has a nice rapping exercise called Lost on his website and lots more ideas in his Pron Pack.
