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.
In section B, do you mean to draw a circle or to make the letter "o"?
The slang "gonna" is just that -- slang. It's far better to pronounce it correctly, "going to." You'll have fewer errors that way!
