Re: Long time no see
This sometimes happens with people who are not native speakers, but who are very proficient in a language, when they meet an expression later in their studies. My German was pretty good when I arrived in Bavaria (many years ago), but it was hochdeutsch, or Standard German. It took me a long time before I could use the Baviarian hello and goodbye, 'grüß Gott' and 'auf wiederschauen', naturally. They sounded very strange after the 'guten Tag' and 'auf Wiedersehen' that I had been used to.
