ok, and here's my problem, 'A' claimed that he is a native english speaker and grew up in London, but I've never seen any native speaker talk in such a way. Do you guys have any idea?

I am not a native speaker, but I do not think that a native speaker will make the mistakes above.

Hi there,

After reviewing the text you have provided, I wonder if those were the original words for words. I am a new joined member to this form. I am not a native speaker but hopefully you don't mind that I would like to share of my thoughts here. I live in the USA. It looks like a trend of our young people's conversation and most of them usually shorten the normal English words and most of them were borned and raised in a English speaking country. It does not mean they are well educated and received the proper education. I am the first generation from my family who have received education in USA since 3rd grade to college and I am still haven't mastered the language. I think there are many factors that contribute to the problem. Wouldn't you say? Proper training, trends, normal and formal speech, and who you are audience.
