  • Welcome to Ask an English Teacher. I'm Amy, ask me anything.

  • Today's question comes from Sa'am. Sa'am thank you so much for your follow up question, excellent question.

  • This question is follow-up from a previous video and I will go ahead and put the link to that video in the description of this video so you can check that one out as well.

  • Sa'am says, I wonder if we can apply these pronunciations to do you all the time.

  • Can we pronounce do you as d'ya and ja.

  • Example: do you live here? Do you live here and do you live here?

  • Fantastic question, thank you.

  • "Do you" can be linked and reduced in questions to sound like d'ya or j'uh or j'oo.

  • In Sa'am's example, do you live here can sound like do you live here or you live here or do you live here. Let's practice some examples.

  • Do you like it?

  • Do you need a ride?

  • Do you have a minute?

  • Do you feel like going for a walk?

  • Last one. Do you think they're coming?

  • I hope this answers your question and I hope it gives you some practice using these different ways to say "do you" in questions.

  • Do you have any questions about English?

  • You can leave them for me in the comment section of this video I'm happy to create follow-up videos or brand new videos about any questions you have in your English studies, thank you so much.

  • I'll see you next time. Bye.
