Practising contractions

Pronouncing contractions can be tricky - let’s practise some:

‘I am’ becomes ‘I’m’.
I’m

I’m going to the beach.
I’m going to come with you.

‘You are’ becomes ‘you’re’
You’re
You’re going to the beach today, aren’t you?
You’re late.

‘She is’ becomes ‘she’s’
She’s

‘She’s coming to the beach with me.’
‘She’s running late again.’

‘He is’ becomes ‘he’s’
He’s

‘He’s coming to the party.’
‘He’s already here.’

And ‘it is’ becomes ‘it’s’
It’s

‘It’s too late to start watching a movie now.’
‘It’s too hot to go to the beach today.’
