Informal Contractions in English - Free Spoken English lesson to speak fluent English

Since the word contract means to squeeze together so the word contraction means to shorten two words together by placing apostrophe or by omitting some letters. Informal contractions are short forms of other words that people use when speaking casually. They are not exactly slang, but they are a little like slang.
Please remember that these are informal contractions. That means that we do not use them in "correct" speech, and we almost never use them in writing.
Also note that, unlike normal contractions, we do not usually use apostrophes (') with informal contractions when written.
