Good evening, fellas! How are you doing?
For the last couple of weeks, we saw one of the most iconic games in the 90’s return with a smash. Can you guess what it is?
As a young English learner, I was particularly interested with the ‘Gotta Catch ‘Em All!’ part, and that is what we’re going to discuss.
I was referring to ‘gotta’, which will be the topic of today’s #EngTrivia, as well as ‘gonna’. Could you help telling the difference?
@englishtips4u “gotta = got to”, however “gonna = going to”.
Both ‘gotta’ and ‘gonna’ are slang words, and should be used in informal conversation only. #EngTrivia
‘Gotta’ is short of ‘got to’ and ‘gonna’ is short of ‘going to’ so the verb following them should be infinitive verb (verb 1). #EngTrivia
Furthermore, as ‘gonna’ is composed of ‘going to’, it will always need ‘to be’. #EngTrivia
Now, would you give some examples, fellas? #EngTrivia
@EnglishTips4U I’m gonna do it later
E.g.: I gotta go shopping. I’m gonna go shopping. #EngTrivia
All right, fellas, today’s #EngTrivia is a wrap! Thank you for joining. You can always check our past sessions at www.englishtips4u.com. If you have any suggestion or any English related questions, just tweet us!
