In this episode of Study English we will look at the use of contractions in spoken English. A contraction is a shortened form of a word.

Study Tips:
Communicating effectively and naturally in English means using contractions in everyday conversational speech.

It is also beneficial to put this into practise for the IELTS Speaking test, to capture the rhythm of English in your speech.

Extending the use of contracted forms to informal writing is important because it is common, correct and natural for that style of writing.
