Thanks to sari, Johanna and ruthandtroy to teach correct grammar!
I appreciate this a lot as, as a foreigner, I would like to learn street American but not bad grammar!
Take care because I already read huge threads
about correct English... huge as there were long (and exciting) discussions between American English and British English and even between different parts of the UK (of course oodles between the states)!
I especially remember of a very interesting thread (I could probably find the URL if you wish it)!
Some examples of differences b/w American English and British English (regarding the grammar not the spelling):
- In American English, you may write (so I think)
If you would come to Paris, I would pick you up at the airport!
while in British English, you must write
If you came to Paris, I would pick you up at the airport!
- In American English, you use 'to guess' with a meaning of to think, to suppose, to believe... in British English, they never confuse between to guess and to think.
- 150 is said hundred and fifty (British E.) or hundred fifty (American E.).
I think my examples are a bit too much as the American sentences I wrote above are correct so that they are only differences, not mistakes...
The mistakes you pointed out are very common in everyday's language!
