Kevin, I can see you're really "gung ho" about boosting your English through understanding how native speakers of English really talk You and so many others want to know how native speakers link words together when they're talking naturally Obviously, as in any language, we change our pronunciation according to how formal or informal the situation is So let’s take a look at our first example Now straight out of an English course book you probably learned to say that question in its complete form OK, no problem! Then you start to see people using contractions then you hear people talk fast in a Hollywood movie a conversation between close friends and suddenly you find yourself listening to an entirely DIFFERENT kind of English Yes it’s that informal and fast spoken English you can hear in American movies and TV series To help you understand how this fast English is spoken I am going to use my new Ragdoll kitten Sapphire to illustrate my examples I’m workin' Nooo, not unless you wanna teach people how to meow! yummy, yummy, human food! pizza Noooooo! You’re a cat! yeah! yummy, yummy! and this is human food pizza and you already ate 4 times today I'm going to the supermarket no Sapphire, they don't allow cats in the supermarket I gotta go now, can you get outta the way? wait for me!!!!!!!!!! So slowly faster and then really fast Say it with me we'll break it down faster faster faster good job! The second one here is when we say this quickly, the question becomes almost unrecognizable give me becomes gimme of becomes o’ and that loses the “t” and become tha(t) So slowy faster faster better getting better (it) really rolls off your tongue and that's why we use it we also have the classic faster and then really fast Now, Ken from China, you had requested I answer your question about how to say “keep an eye on him” really fast and naturally I’m going to do that, but since Sapphire is a female I am changing it to You see any time I go out Sapphire always manages to run out, she darts right out into the hallway I have to keep an eye on her So split the words in blocks to get the fast pronunciation here and slowly link the 3 words together got it? Well Kevin and everybody out there watching my lesson I hope I’ve helped you today with how native speakers talk fast and I want to thank my little kitty for helping me out watchyadoin'? I’m saying goodbye ahhh! yeah, say goodbye! I wanna pizza! Goodbye!
