I'm with you! 

What I have noticed more and more (now that I feel that I can understand English spoken by natives), and as we have more opportunities to listen to natives, in the media in general through the Internet is that the native speakers - in my opinion - prefer those structures which sound better than those which are just plain grammatical. 

The problem for the foreign students is that many textbooks are focused on those exams like TOEFL, TOEIC, GMAT, or even the ACT, and SAT that do not want to override the grammar rule.

What do you think?
