    That what I want to express.

    Could I reserve a seat in the car (on the train) - WordReference Forums
    Thank you. That what I want to express.

    Do you see any errors?
    "That's" or "That is" is correct, isn't it?
    Is want, not "wanted," okay?

    Re: That what I want to express.

    'That is' and 'that's' are both fine.

    It can be 'want' or 'wanted', depending on what you want to say.
