Bob the Canadian here and I just wanted to talk to you today about a question you'll
hear quite often in everyday English conversation and that question is, "What are you going
to do?"
You'll hear this question quite often after a statement is made like,
"Oh no, there's no more milk in the refrigerator!"
"What are you going to do?"
"Oh no, I lost my dog!"
"What are you going to do?"
Now we don't say it that clearly in everyday English conversation.
We actually take the first part of the question, "What are you" and we shorten it down to "What're
***Note this is not real english, just how it sounds.
I know it sounds a little bit strange, "What are you" becomes "What're ya" and the second
part of the question, "going to do" becomes "gonna do".
So you end up with a question that sounds more like this, "What're ya gonna do?"
"What're ya gonna do?"
"Oh no there's no more milk in the fridge."
"What're you gonna do?"
"Oh no i lost my dog!"
"What're ya gonna do?"
And then the first part of the question also has another variation to it and that variation
is, "Whatcha."
So you'll often hear people say, "Whatcha gonna do?"
"Oh no, I've lost my cat!"
"Whatcha gonna do?"
Well that's the question, "What are you going to do?"
