Hello there! My name is Ronnie.
and today I am going to teach you, by request, how to listen to very fast English, native English speakers.
when they put too little tiny words together to make bigger words
this will help you with your listening a lot.
A lot of people said, Ronnie! How could I improve my listening
this is one way
the other thing that this will improve is your fluency
so if you find that you're not being able to speak very fast in English
If you can master these, you will be able to increase your listening and your speaking all in one easy step
so, the very very first thing we're going to look at is the word:gonna. Can you repeat that? Gonna.
then we have wanna."Wanna". Wanna
next we have gotta
and then, hafta
maybe you've heard gonna before. Does anyone know what it means? gonna
gonna means, going to
so when we speak naturally in English we say, um, I'm gonna go to the movies
or I'm gonna go home.
we would never say "I'm going to go home."
say, "I'm gonna go home"
gonna go. ok
so gonna go is "going to" plus "go"
you don't have to use go, you can use any other verb
the next one, wanna
if this is going to, what do you think wanna means
it means, want to . So I can say "I wanna eat pizza."
or I wanna see a movie or I wanna go home. I wanna go home. You can said like that.
so, instead of saying wants to, I want to go to the movies , we say I wanna go to the movies. I wanna see you. ok?
then next one is gotta.
gotta is very very strange the way the grammer was in this one
this is actually I have. Now, this is dramatically incorrect we should say I have got to.
We say gotta. So we said I gotta go
I gotta have. I gotta learn. I gotta learn English on Engvid
and the last one is hafta
we say have to
so
this say I have to go. You can say I hafta go
so, what you have to remember . wow it's hafta! see? how nature that was
is in English, we change the word plus to, and we just change "a" , sometimes you put "ta", sometimes put "na"
there's no rule for using "ta" or "na"
this you choose one two three four five words you can remember , gonna wanna gotta hafta
that have "to" at the end
there's some more
excited?
these are modals in English
we have coulda , shoulda, woulda, and musta. Musta?
so, these are actually how we say things like this
wow it's far stretch. So instead of saying could have, oh! I could have gone to the movies, we say " I coulda gone"
instead to saying should have, we said "shoulda"
this is we use for when we made a mistake. oh!man! I shoulda gone to the movies!
why didn't I go?
this one ,can you guess what this one is?
we say woulda, but it should be would have
and the last one is musta, must have
so, we said would have, we said "woulda", and must have we said"musta"
so we use the modal we never use "have", we say "a"
very strange. And the last two, kind of fun
I see this word a lot in TV commercials when they're advertising something that has" a lot of" something
so they'll say stuff like lotsa tomatoes
or lotsa money. or lotsa pizza
"lotsa" is actually " a lot of"
we totally take out the "a", and we change lot of to "lotsa"
I don't know why but yes I had no idea
and this one, did anyone know what this one might be ?
this one is sort of
sort of means a little bit or another things that we would say kind of or kinda.
There's the same thing so you can say ," I sorta wanna go to the movies."
or I kinda wanna go to the movies
it's not 100 percent it's like you're thinking about it
so , sorta and kinda ,basically have the same meaning, they mean sort of or kind of
and this basically means a little bit . Well, now you'd heard this lesson, go to the website Engvid. Cause I gotta go. Bye bye.
