I've noticed native English speakers make these mistakes more often than us Belgians (English is the third language here, after Dutch and French).

Sadly, I would hazard to say it's mostly among some Americans, who are slowly but surely forgetting how to spell every word in the English language.

You usually learn more grammar when learning a foreign language than you do when learning your own native language.

So... you have a problem with his use of "your", but not his use of "its"?

You only fixed 50% of the grammar issues in that very short sentence :p

From my observation, "could of" "would of" "should of" are typically used by Brits, while "its" and "your" are used by Americans.

It's not a problem that people should be able to speak or write their own language? I'm fine with non-English speakers that can't do this, but English speakers should know. Just saw a post today that had NO punctuation either, and it was about 5 sentences long. Ridiculous.

Some people are difficult to understand, but some accents.... some accents just make me laugh. I can't help it, they just sound odd.

Like people from Birmingham. They (no offence to them) generally sound like they're lost in thought.

My accent is not really a proper Manchester one. it's more of a general British. xD It's hard to explain. But I definitely don't speak much slang. Innit.

That's not Australian. It's just proper English.

Also, I think less and fewer should be added to this list as people rarely use them properly.

You could of been a lot nicer then to post this mean picture. Some people just have a hard time with grammar there trying I promise but your discouraging them from learning by having such a negative affect. Its hard to learn English and all of it's strange rules.
