Certainly, Teacher. I hear it in conversational English often.
Thank you very much for introducing "then". As you know, it is used much like "correct?" or "right?" Very good point!
Frankly, I think you have found a shortcoming with native speakers. We use something so naturally that it doesn't seem worthy of comment, but it is.
I remember running across "mal" in a Brazilian story. It didn't seem to fit. I asked some Brazilians about it and they couldn't explain its use to me. Their comments centered on "mal means mal'. LOL The obvious problem is that I was thinking "poorly" and they were thinking "scarcely, barely, etc." Same word, different meanings.
