Y con una celebración grande, va a haber mucha carne y vino de calidad. And with a big celebration, there's going to be lots of meat and quality wine. My question is "va a haber", why not "va a ser" or "va a estar" or "va a tener"

In this lesson, there is both "va a haber" and "va a ver", and I have the darnedest time trying to hear the difference between the two...

I think when there are 3 a's in "va a haber" with h being silent, it is almost pronounced with just one "a". In "va a ver" there are two consecutive a's, and again only one a is pronounced. And also "b" and "v" could be pronounced the same way from a previous lesson, then the only thing left is through the context and to listen again and again and again. And then just give up.

Yikes, this is one of the reasons why understanding spoken Spanish is so challenging. When I say "va a haber", I would likely articulate three "a" syllables. Likewise, when saying "va a ver", I would likely articulate two "a" syllables. But in fast speech, I see how they can sound the same.
