This doesn't apply to other languages? [or, at least French, for that matter? Oh, apparently not.]
I'm also really surprised to learn that your listening comprehension isn't great, because of your writing, but it makes sense. Also explains why you're so strict about grammar, lol.
I've tried to keep from using words like 'kinda, wanna, dunno, sorta' and stuff like that on these forums as to not confuse people, but I can't help it sometimes.
