Hi! Apparently, the rules about the contracted forms are more complicated than my teachers used to tell me in my young years. Few weeks ago, I wrote in a thread "I've to admit that blablabla" and a native kindly sent me a PM to tell me I should have written "I have to admit...". 3 days after I saw a conversation in another thread where the point was that somebody should have used the contracted form. At this point, I'm clearly confused Could you give me some material about the situation where we should and should not use the contracted form? Many thanks!
