- Hello, everyone!
Welcome back to English with Lucy.
I have got a seriously
important lesson for you today

and this lesson is going
to help you understand

native speakers and sound
more native yourself.

So what are we going to talk about today?
Well, we're going to
talk about reductions.

I'm going to show you how
to correctly use words like

wanna and gonna.
I use them all the time
in daily conversations.

It's not good English,
but it is colloquial,

conversational English
and you will hear it

and you probably will
want to learn to use it,

because saying I want to and
I'm going to all the time

can be pretty tiresome.
Quickly, before we get started,
I just want to remind you

that if you really want
to take your English

up to the next level, you're going to need
to talk and practise with native speakers,
and there is a fabulous platform
that will help you do this,

and it's called italki.
Now, italki is a website
where you can find

lots and lots of native,
qualified teachers

and they're ready to help
you become more fluent.

I've got a present for you.
I can offer you 100 italki
credits, which will be credited

to your account as soon as
you make your first purchase

and that's worth around $10,
so it's quite a good offer,
it's like a free class.

If you want to claim that
offer, then click in the link

in the description box.
Yes, let me know if you use italki.
I'd love to hear how you get on.
It's a website I love and I use myself.
So, you've probably heard
native speakers use words like

wanna and gonna.
Now, because it's a colloquial word,
there are some variations in spelling.
I have seen it written wanna,
which is what I would tend
to use and also wonna.

And I've seen gonna and gunna as well.
But, the pronunciation stays the same.
Wanna. Gonna.
Not ganna, it's gonna.
Not wonna, it's wanna.
Now, the first word that I
want to talk about is wanna.

Now, wanna means want to.
Want to.
I wanna go home.
I want to go home.
Now this is fine when we use it with
I, you, we, and they.
I wanna go home, you wanna
go home, we wanna go home,

and they wanna go home.
That's fine, the problem arises
when we want to use he, she, or it.
Why? Well, because we have to
use the third person singular.

Now, I want to,
but she wants to.
So wanna changes to wansta.
He wansta go home, she wansta go home,
it wansta go home.
So, you must remember that
if it's he, she, or it,

it's not wanna, it's wansta.
You have to make sure that the
verb and the subject agree.

Now, moving on to gonna.
Gonna means going to and the
biggest mistake that I hear

is that students forget to
use it with the verb to be.

I am going, you are going to be going.
I always hear I gonna go,
she gonna go, we gonna do.

That's wrong, it needs to be
I'm gonna go, she's
gonna go, we're gonna do.

The other error that students
tend to make with gonna

is to do with the pronunciation of
the third person singular, again.
I'm gonna go, you're
gonna go, we're gonna go,

they're gonna go is fine.
But, as she and he both
finish with a vowel sound,

which is voiced, we need
to use the zz sound.

She's gonna go, he's gonna go.
If you want to sound
native, you must do that.

If you say she's gonna
go or he's gonna go,

I immediately recognise that
you're not a native speaker.

Of course, people will understand you,
but if you want to speak like a native,
then that's what you need to do.
Now with it, on the other hand,
as t is an unvoiced consonant,
we use the ss sound after it.
So she's gonna, he's gonna, it's gonna.
Now I hope that clarified your doubts
about the reductions wanna and gonna.
Remember, not ganna, it's gonna.
Not wonna, it's wanna.
Remember, there are various
different spellings,

but I would advise against
using them in written English.

It's something that we
tend to use more speaking.

Now, remember that your subject
has to agree with the verb.

Wanna, I wanna, he or she wansta.
Remember to use the verb to be with gonna.
And the pronunciation she's
gonna, he's gonna, it's gonna.

Okay, that's everything.
I hope to see you very, very
soon for another lesson.

Don't forget to connect with me
on all of my social media, which is here,
and I'll see you for another
lesson very, very soon.
