  • I got a request from a subscriber about how to speak quickly

  • I got a list of words here and I'm gonna go through them now.

  • So I'll put this down. The first one is

  • "I'm going to" I'll stand over here and write

  • "I'm going to" We will put 'slow' here (看黑板)

  • and 'fast' here "I'm going to" turns into

  • "I'm gunna"

  • "I'm gunna" which turns into

  • "I'mn'a"

  • so depending on how fast you're speaking. I'm going to the store.

  • I'm going to the store.

  • I'm gunna go

  • to the store.

  • I know that's different, I'll change it. I'm going to go

  • to the store. I'm gunna go to the store.

  • I'mn'a go to the store.

  • hey I'mn'a go to the restaurant. "I'mn'a" that's that's more

  • Canadian say that. American say that sometimes. You can stick with this one.

  • "I'm gunna"

  • I'm "gunna" go to the store. That's pretty quick.

  • Next example is "Do you want to"

  • and "Do you want to" turns into "D'you wanna"

  • "D'you wanna." "Do you want to" visit

  • ugh

  • "Do you want to" visit Grandma, granny?

  • "Do you want to" visit granny? "D'you wanna" visit her?

  • So in English we often stick it together kinda

  • D'you-wanna "visit-her"? D'you want a "visitor"?

  • Do you wanna "visit her"? 'Cause "visitors" kinda different. We'd say visit her.

  • Next example: "What is that?"

  • "What is that" turns into "Whatsthat"

  • "Whatsthat"

  • almost like a "zed"(z). "Whatzzat"

  • Hey, "whatzzat"?

  • Next example: "Did you"

  • "Did you" turns into "Didjah"

  • Hey "did you" see the movie yesterday? Did you

  • Did you see the movie yesterday?

  • Didjah see the movie yesterday? Did you

  • get the new CD? Did you get the new CD?

  • Didjah. Didjah. That's an easy one.

  • "Would you" turn into "Wouldjah"

  • "Whouldjah" "Would you" like to drink more coffee?

  • "Wouldjah" like some more coffee? Whouldjah, wouldjah.

  • "Would you" go to the store

  • if they had a sale? "Wouldjah" go to the store if they had a sale?

  • Wouldjah? Wouldjah go? Wouldjah do? Wouldjah like it

  • if it was better.

  • Next example: "sort of" "sort of" turns into "sorta"

  • "sort of" turns into "sorta" just like "kind of" turns into "kinda"

  • I "sort of" like the zoo.

  • I "sorta" like the zoo. I "sorta" like the zoo. "Sorta."

  • "kinda"

  • I "kinda" like the zoo, but I "sorta" like the beach better than the zoo.

  • I "kind of" like it. I "kinda" like it

  • Do you "kinda" like ugh like that that movie?

  • Yeah, I "sorta" like it. It's okay

  • "Different" this is more like a pronunciation thing than anything

  • "Different"

  • ESL, they often say it like this:

  • "deef err. ent"

  • "deef err.ent"

  • Do you have a "deef err.ent" name?

  • And native speakers we say d'eh'fferent

  • "eh" "ee"

  • So this is kind of wrong. "eh," d'eh'fferent. s'eh'gnal, w'eh'sh

  • They often say "ee"

  • like I wh'ee'sh. "deef rr.ent" bad

  • but "d'eh'fferent" good. I sorta like a bit different color

  • Here we got "supposed"

  • "supposed"

  • I am "supposed" to study turns into supp, "suppost"

  • I'm "suppost" to study

  • "s'ppost." So we can get rid of that (u).

  • "s'ppost"

  • I'm "s'ppost" to study tonight

  • I am "supposed" to study tonight

  • ESL would

  • they'd be saying like ugh "supp ose.d"

  • and the 'd' would be like extra

  • "supposed to" I'm "supp ose.d" to study tonight

  • native speaker: I'm "s'ppost" to study tonight

  • I'm "s'ppost" to eat less carbohydrate

  • I'm "s'ppost" to the less sugar. I'm "s'ppost" to do more reading

  • Next example is "Has there been"

  • I must erase

  • I'm "s'ppost" to erase the board between examples

  • I'm not "s'ppost" to drop the water rag on the floor

  • What was that thing I said?

  • yeah, "has there been"

  • turns into "hastherbin"

  • "eent.uh.rested"

  • but that was not very good

  • "eh," 'eh'nterested, not 'ee'nterested

  • d'ee'fferent and 'ee'nterested, bad
