  • Hi, everyone. It's Lynn again.

  • Welcome to my video.

  • Today, we're going to be talking about making negative contractions using 'not'.

  • Now, this is one that you should pay really close attention to because

  • if you memorize it properly and you pronounce it properly,

  • you're going to sound just like a native speaker.

  • Let's take a look.

  • Okay, let's take a look at my list of four common contractions using negative sentences.

  • Now, I will repeat each example twice.

  • I'll say the first one slowly.

  • And the second time I'll say it quickly like a native speaker.

  • So remember it's really important that you repeat after me out loud each time.

  • Okay, the first one, 'is not' = 'isn't'.

  • 'He isn't home.'

  • Next.

  • 'are not' = 'aren't'.

  • 'They aren't coming to dinner.'

  • 'do not' = 'don't'.

  • 'I don't like doing homework.'

  • 'does not' = 'doesn't'.

  • 'She doesn't study very well.'

  • Great job, everybody. Let's move on.

  • Okay, now we're going to take a look at some dialogues.
