I understand there is no hard and fast rule about grammar rules or a single best way to learn grammar.
As a non-native speaker, I struggle with learning English grammar. I read books on English grammar, phrasal verbs and I watch videos for kids to learn basic English sentence structure. I am still struggling with grammar.
I wonder do native speakers instinctively notice the use of tenses in conversations? For e.g. when someone says
"I ate" vs "I have eaten".
"I watch" vs "I watched / I have watched".
"She is here", "She was here".
"I come home" vs "I came home".
"I know what I was drawing" vs "I know what I drew". "I'm struggling to learn grammar" vs "I've been struggling to learn grammar"
Do native speakers interpret them literally?
