Speak English Naturally- gonna and wanna- Audio Lesson

Speak Eng­lish Nat­u­ral­ly- ‘wan­na and gonna’-AUDIO les­son

When we speak Eng­lish nat­u­ral­ly, like in any oth­er lan­guage, we some­times con­tract or devolve how we say things for speed and ease. Unless you are pro­nounc­ing Eng­lish as Queen Eliz­a­beth of Eng­land does, then to speak Eng­lish nat­u­ral­ly, we often con­tract two com­mon phras­es.

These two phras­es are ‘going to' and ‘want to.' Oh and by the way, using the con­tract­ed form of these also gets you extra marks in your IELTS or oth­er Eng­lish pro­nun­ci­a­tion tests, because native Eng­lish speak­ers con­tract these phras­es when they speak.

In this train­ing les­son, we will prac­tise how to speak Eng­lish nat­u­ral­ly using these phras­es and get extra prac­tise using cor­rect Eng­lish stress and rhythm as well.

Speak Eng­lish Nat­u­ral­ly
