Sure, but I still hear native English speakers use similar constructions here in Australia.
Good point. What do you think of "wanna" and "gonna"?
BTW I do teach about informal constructions in conversational English. ESL students do need to recognise them after all.

I got that habit off a friend of mine.
I got stick off my dad for coming in late.
I'd be chuffed if one day a student of mine came up in class with an informal statement like those above. It would probably mean they had a chance to use English with their friends outside a formal learning environment.
