Hi, I'm Vanessa from SpeakEngli­shWithVane­\x­a0\xa0

Are you ready to practice speaking\x­a0\n

Hey, wha’tch up to this\xa0\n

If I asked you, Hey, whatch up to this weekend?\x­a0\n

know how to respond to this question easily and\xa0\n

you to naturally have a conversati­on about\xa0\­n

conversati­on topic. Maybe you're leaving school\xa0­\n

whatch up to this weekend?" And they ask you\xa0\n

and panicking, today I want to help you learn\xa0\­n

you can use in these situations­. Also some common\xa0­\n

And then at the end of this lesson, we're going\xa0\­n

I hope that you can get your pronunciat­ion and\xa0\n

you've learned during today's lesson. Are you\xa0\n

question of all time, at least according to\xa0\n

Is that question, will you give me money? No. Is\xa0\n

most important conversati­on question is, there's\xa­0\n

When someone asks you about your weekend plans\xa0\­n

I'm not doing much, there might be an incredibly­\xa0\n

Well, this is where the most important question\x­a0\n

about you? You can imagine tossing a ball back and\xa0\n

What are you doing this weekend? They throw\xa0\­n

I'm going hiking, or I'm not doing much. You need\xa0\n

this question does that, how about you? It means\xa0\­n

What are you doing this weekend? How about you?\xa0\n

either of them, actually, they have\xa0\n

What about you? Remember these questions, because\xa­0\n

lesson during our conversati­on speaking time,\xa0\­n

let's go to some common vocabulary that\xa0\n

Brunch, many Americans love brunch.\xa­0\n

breakfast and lunch. And that's because we usually\xa­0\n

or a Sunday morning between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.\n

or lunch, and it's usually a long social event.\xa0­\n

or have your friends to your house to eat\xa0\n

favorite brunch spot on Sunday. Great. It's\xa0\n

foods. Usually with some kind of alcoholic drink\xa0\­n

or maybe some champagne in the morning. And you\xa0\n

Another common weekend word is social butterfly.­\xa0\n

lot of plans. They are flying around to event, to\xa0\n

doing things usually involving lots of other\xa0\­n

a social butterfly, probably the year 2020 with\xa0\n

really difficult for you, because you love to get\xa0\n

So we can use this in a sentence like\xa0\n

She has invitation­s to three brunches\x­a0\n

What if you are not a social butterfly. What\xa0\n

caterpilla­r? No. It means you are a homebody.\­xa0\n

She's a homebody. Someone who enjoys just doing\xa0\­n

comfortabl­e in a comfortabl­e place at home. You\xa0\n

I'm more of a homebody. When I get together with\xa0\n

and then play games here." I think this is true\xa0\n

I prefer these intimate group\xa0\­n

I prefer just a couple of friends at home.\n

some food or some marshmallo­ws and this kind of\xa0\n

more often than when I was a little bit younger.\x­a0\n

a lot of our weekend plans for the past year. And\xa0\n

It doesn't mean you're going to do nothing.\x­a0\n

I\'m going to stay in. You might say, "It\'s\xa0­\n

I\'m just going to stay in and read a book," or\xa0\n

around the house." To binge watch. This means that\xa0\n

to back without stopping. So several hours, maybe\xa0\­n

This is binge watching. You are watching a lot.\xa0\n

with alcohol. To binge drink, this means\xa0\­n

not a very healthy thing to do. But when we\xa0\n

is you're doing a lot back to back. Or you could\xa0\­n

my husband and I binge watched all of the Star\xa0\n

young children, you do not have time to binge\xa0\­n

I binge watched that new TV show that just\xa0\n

use to talk about your weekend plans is, to\xa0\n

to catch up on, is a beautiful phrasal verb that\xa0\n

activity that you haven't done for a while.\n

and you need to finish all of this. So we can\xa0\n

some home repairs, tidying up, maybe even yard\xa0\n

or two weeks, Oh, there's so many you have to do.\xa0\n

do what you haven't done for a while. You need to\xa0\n

activities that I mentioned, laundry, dishes,\xa­0\n

up, helping to make your home a wonderful place\xa0\­n

catch up on some chores. You might say, "I was\xa0\n

up on some chores this weekend." Maybe not very\xa0\n

All right, now that we have some common vocabulary­\xa0\n

let's talk about some introducti­on\xa0\n

and that you can also ask other people.\xa­0\n

fast ways that you will hear them. So I want\xa0\n

people are saying and also be able to use\xa0\n

What are you up to this weekend? What are you up\xa0\n

what's up. This just means, how are you? So\xa0\n

what are you doing this weekend? What are\xa0\n

that we usually say it like this? What are\xa0\n

No. Instead we're going to reduce this a\xa0\n

more. Let's talk about that first one. What\xa0\n

So here the word, what and are, are creating\x­a0\n

we don't write this type of contractio­n. It's only\xa0\n

are, is, will be contracted with a question\x­a0\n

whatda you up to? We can reduce this a little\xa0­\n

Whatch up to this weekend? There are a lot of\xa0\n

what-cha up to. So here we have, what are you,\xa0\n

And what are has just been smashed\xa­0\n

up to, whatch up to, whatch up to, whatch up to.\n

whatch up to, it sounds really weird. So\xa0\n

So if you're going to say this, it needs to\xa0\n

Most likely you're going to hear this. So I want\xa0\n

says, "Hey, whatch up to this weekend."\­xa0\n

Oh, Vanessa taught me that. I know what that\xa0\n

So let's go on to our next expression where we're\xa0\­n

understand it. What have you got going on this\xa0\n

These all mean the same thing. What are you doing\xa0\­n

with the word gut. What have you gut going\xa0\­n

we don't say it clearly. What have you got going\xa0\­n

Instead, you're going to hear a reduction or a\xa0\n

we saw with the previous example. What've. So what\xa0\n

you gut goin on? That final G in the word going\xa0\­n

goin. So let's try to say that altogether­.\xa0\n

you gut goin on? What've you gut goin on this\xa0\n

Do you think we can reduce this further? Oh yes.\xa0\n

Here the beginning of, what have you got, is\xa0\n

stirred it up and threw it out on a cookie\xa0­\n

it's not quite so messy and complicate­d. At\xa0\n

But it sounds like, whatda, whatda, this is, what\xa0\n

again, we're going to drop that\xa0\n

Goin on, whatda ya gut goin on? Whatda. Notice\xa0­\n

Do you hear a clear, T, Whatda ya, whatda ya.\xa0\xa

Nope. That at the end of the word,\xa0\­n

This is really typical of American English,\x­a0\n

is going to change to a D. It's called a flapped\xa­0\n

way. Whatda ya gut goin on? Can you say it\xa0\n

Whatda ya gut goin on this weekend? All right,\xa0­\n

fun this weekend? You doin anything fun this\xa0\n

this question? Should there be another word? Yep.\xa0\n

but the word, are it's on vacation. It's just gone\xa0\n

with the word you. You doin anything fun this\xa0\n

more casual and less like an interrogat­ion,\xa0\n

It's just a casual question. You doin anything\x­a0\n

We're not going to reduce it an awful lot, but we\xa0\n

you doing anything fun. Instead, you're going to\xa0\n

ya. Ya doin, listen to that G at the end,\xa0\n

Maybe it's on vacation with the word are. So\xa0\n

ya doin, that's the main reduction that's going\xa0\­n

this weekend. Ya doin. Try to say that with me. Ya\xa0\n

fun this weekend. All right, let's go onto some\xa0\n

types of small talk, easy casual conversati­ons.\n

and it sounds interestin­g or fun, how can you\xa0\n

How interestin­g," or just simply, "Nice." If that\xa0\n

home, maybe they're going to binge watch some\xa0\n

still say something positive in response. So you\xa0\n

And that's true, especially if you've been\xa0\n

and relax for the weekend. So you might say,\xa0\n

Before we practice our sample conversati­on\xa0\n

Well, if you're talking about weekend plans, it\xa0\n

Have a good weekend" or "Enjoy your weekend."\­xa0\n

All right, let's take a deep breath. Are you\xa0\n

would like you to do is, first, I would like\xa0\n

Think about the different parts that\xa0\n

our key beautiful question. What about you? How\xa0\n

key vocabulary that we talked about, and also just\xa0\n

what you got going on this weekend? Great\xa0\­n

And then I'm going to put some pauses\xa0­\n

the conversati­on with me. So first\xa0\­n

Hey, whatch up to this weekend?" "Not that\xa0\n

some chores on Saturday. But on Sunday, I'm going\xa0\­n

That sounds fun. Where\'s your\xa0\n

Sunday Morning Cafe." "What about you? What\xa0\n

kind of a homebody. So I'll probably just read\xa0\n

have a good weekend. Enjoy your book." "Thanks.\x­a0\n

ready to take this to the next level? I'm going\xa0\­n

I would like you to reply in that pause. Take a\xa0\n

Let\'s go. "Hey, whatch up to this weekend?"\­n

Oh, me? Oh, I\'ll probably go hiking\xa0­\n

Well, nice talking to you. Have a good weekend."\­xa0\xa0

Well, how did you do? If you would like you can go\xa0\n

You can take a deep breath, enjoy yourself.\­xa0\n

want you to enjoy the process, enjoy the\xa0\n
