Gonna is a simplification of the words ‘going’ and ‘to.’ This word is informal but widely used when speaking.

The most common error my students make is using ‘gonna’ without the verb ‘to be’ in its right tense and in agreement with the subject.

‘Gonna’ cannotstand  alone!

  1. I + am + gonna
    1. I’m gonna have dinner at 8:00.
  2. She + is + gonna
    1. She’s gonna go home for the holidays.
  3. We + are + gonna
    1. We’re gonna graduate in May.

**Interesting fact, the word ‘gonna’ in Italian means ‘skirt.’**
