Learn Spoken English: Wanna and Gonna
Hi, I am AJ Hoge of Effortless English Club. let’s talk more about real English. Real spoken English which you probably did not learn in your text books. Yet, this is so common that almost everyone in the united states, especially in north America will use this kind of English.
Today, i am gonna teach you two words. One is wanna, and the other is gonna. Wonna and gonna. Now wanna and gonna, you can’t find them in dictionaries usually but, they’re super common. You will hear that in conversation all the time. And many times, people who are learning English have difficulty with these kinds of words.
Now wanna means want to. Now in a book you’ll see the sentence: “i want to go to the store.” But in fact in real conversation, people are speaking quickly they don’t say “i want to go to the store” unless there are British actor or something trying to pronounce everything very carefully. But that’s not how real people speak English. Real people say wanna, instead of want to. Instead of saying “i want to go to the store” they will say i wanna go to the store. When it goes to fast, want to sounds wanna.
Another common one is gonna. Now gonna is short for going to. So again, in textbook English we would say i am going to eat ice cream now. Or i am going to eat ice cream tomorrow. And real life we say i’m gonna. I’m going to eat ice cream i’m gonna go visit my parents tomorrow.
I’m gonna make a million dollars next year, right? Instead of i’m going to, we say i’m gonna. This is real spoken English and you must learn this. There are many words like this in English. Many combinations of words that we use every single day when we speak English. This is one reason that people who study textbook English, have a hard time have a difficult time understanding real English, when they talk to Americans or Canadians or, you know people from English speaking countries.
Because the real English is not the same as textbook English. These are just two simple examples. There are many more. I’ll tell you about more of them in later videos. But for now, gonna and wanna. So i wanna take a break now. So i’m gonna turn off this video. See you next time i’m AJ Hoge from Effortless English Club.
