We’re listening to contractions in Spoken English

When you listen to spoken informal English you will hear that we use contractions all the time in informal conversations. You're, we're, they're. Can you recognise these contractions when you hear them? You are, we are, they are.  These are rarely pronounced in this full form and are usually contracted. This often makes them hard to hear in spoken English as when contracted they sound very similar to other English words.
