One thing I will say is that even though we learn grammar, we don’t always learn the specifics that non-native speakers learn. We learn how to form sentences correctly, how to use punctuation properly, what the difference between a subject and a predicate is, and things like that, but we don’t necessarily learn the technical terms for everything. For example, we learned exactly how to use “-ing verbs,” but we never learned that those were actually called a present participle and that we were forming the present progressive. Maybe some schools did, but I only learned a lot of those technical terms when I was learning a second language or when I was studying linguistics in college.
