Hi Tessy. Sorry you had to wait. We receive many messages each day and we need to check them all carefully, so you may have to wait sometimes before your message is posted. But we aim to publish all messages within 24 hours so if your message isn't published yet, please be patient and check back a little later. Thanks! Best wishes :)

Hi Charles. That's a good question. Well, there's a slight difference. Get up means get out of bed, but you wake up when you've finished sleeping.

Here's an example. Every day I wake up at 7:30 a.m., when my alarm goes off. I stay in bed for 10 or 15 more minutes, and then I get up (at about 7:45) and have breakfast.

Can you understand the difference?

Hi Charles. Yes, these words are very common, aren't they? Have you heard them in films and songs? These are quite informal, so they're fine when you are speaking but in writing you should use the long forms (got to, going to, want to). And these are common in both British English and American English. How about you, do you say gonna or going to?

If you are emailing or messaging your friends, wanna is fine so don't worry! But if you're writing something more formal such as something for school, you should use want to. :)

British and American English are actually more similar than different and many things are the same. But there are some important differences. For example, do you say lift or elevator? The first one is British English and the second one is American. Have a look at this page on the LearnEnglish site for adults to learn more. There's also a funny video on the site about this topic :)

Good luck with your studies.

Thank for your answer.
Is it okay if we abbreviate auxiliary verb for writing something more formal such as for school ?
e.g. : she is beautiful = she's beautiful
Thank you
I'll be waiting for your answer.
