1. I'm going to the Seould Community Center.

2. What are you going to do there?

In #2, 'going to' is pronounced gonna. However, In #1, 'going to' cannot be pronounced gonna, because 'to the Seoul Community' is a unit, which is an adverbial phrase.

Would you like to take a look at the expressions above? Are my explanations grammatical? If you find grammar errors, correct them, please.
