Oh interesting, thanks for checking back!

Many of the context sentences do have a colloquial, spoken vibe.

I’m not quite sure where I fall on the issue of grammatical correctness (well, I’m usually on the “incorrect” side).

On the one hand, it’s a language learning site for beginners. On the other, it’s useful to know how people actually speak.

Spoken language is often less grammatically correct than written (in any language). Dropped particles are probably the most common difference.
