Using Contractions

Hi cats!! Today’s video is all about using contractions.

 

Transcription:

This is Nessa on ESL TOP TEN and here’s a little Quicktip.

 

Today, I have a little trick for you. A little trick that will make you sound more natural, more informal. And the best part? It’s super-easy.

 

Use contractions

That means instead of saying, “I am a student” say, “I’m a student.”
Instead of saying, “It is raining today” say, “It’s raining today.”
“He has lived here for many years” becomes, “he’s lived here for many years.”

 

Contract! Keep it short! Keep it simple!

 

This is Nessa on ESL TOP TEN and I will see you next time.

 

Luv, Nessa ❤️
