I remember this from when I was learning Spanish and it’s coming back as I learn Japanese. Not only that, but hearing what other countries learn as English kind of confirms my opinion.
The biggest issue with learning new languages is that everything you learn is so professional, that hardly anyone ever uses it. It’s difficult to find any resources to learn casual conversation, just essential words and phrases, or swear words.
The most commonly taught phrase in English I’ve heard is “hello, how do you do?” But if you’re in America, almost nobody will ask you that, and instead you’ll hear “hey,” “what’s up,” or “how’s it going.” Speed of speech is also important.
I have vivid memories of a class in highschool, where they combined Spanish and Ingles classes to talk to each other casually, and everyone struggled, because none of what we were taught made sense in the context of casual conversation. We were taught how to say phrases and words, but not how to talk with those words.
