Mensagem:  And another thing too, Jonas, Americans rarely correct newcomers when they make basic grammar errors. They quickly hear the mistakes but fail to correct them. As a result, newcomers will often go on making the same mistakes over and over again thinking that there is nothing wrong with what he/she is saying, given that when he/she first addressed a native speaker with the incorrect grammar, that particular native speaker, just reciprocated him/her as though he/she didn't notice any errors. They always do, however. Was it the same for you? In my case, it was easier. I started school a month after arriving. -Miguel Vieira
