Hey guys, I think you are meowing at the wrong tree. ;-)
It´s equally important to know English grammar and getting to know the English of the streets, it depends on where you are using it and to whom you are talking to...and
depends on a variety of other things, so Chris is righ and Sidney as well.
And I am not going into politics right now! that is, I am not trying to reap any vote.
English is a vast vast place to roam, so the more we live the more we learn.
I for one, like to go into the two worlds the academical one, and the gossiping mags for example.
It´s interesting to see how the usage and choosing of words takes place in the Newsweek and the Economist/The Guardian and that of TMZ, bossip, toofab (Hollyood News), variety News. All that with Vogue, The NewYorker newspaper, and Interview in between...
It´s interesting to see how different "E" (cable tv), CNN and Fox are.
In fact, earth is a big place where may have all kinds of styles.
Perhaps that´s why the UK BBC made two message boards, one is Communicate and the other is Ask, in the first you can throw anything in English (you will be understood anyway...is just for communication´s sake) The other is ASK, where you are supposed to know English and his grammar, at least a bit of it.
So, I think both are important, albeit the core of the language has to be there (that´s where grammar has its role, I think.)
Like Dale say, English can be fun! why not?
