PODCAST- Sound like a native saying the phrase ” I have to”

Practice saying the word HAVE with some emphasis and reducing the smaller word TO.  I want you to practice saying these two words together. That means I want you to connect the two words together.  “Have to”  Do not take a breath in-between these two words. 

Pronouncing “HAVE” 

Say the vowel sound longer in this word  “haaaav”  Remember to say the final V sound (but do not focus too much on that sound.)

Pronouncing “TO”

The T in the word TO may sound like a “TA” or “DA”

Pronouncing “Have To”

When you put the two words together, HAVE TO will look like this “HAAAFTa” or “HAAAFDa”

Wow! Isn’t that crazy? Listen to this recording and repeat the practice sentences.
