In Brazil we study Portuguese as a school subject learning grammar (which makes kids hate it). Once I was told it's not like this in English speaking countries, but I've never understood how it happens. I'm curious! What about other countries?

I don't remember studying English grammar, but I'm sure I did. I do remember writing lots of essays, book reports and stories though. And some teachers were really picky about grammar at that point.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
