Mistakes are not harmless. Every time you say an incorrect phrase

in a foreign language, you increase the probability that you will say that phrase again. Therefore, if you speak with mistakes, you can easily teach yourself bad grammar.

A lot of people think it’s more important to improve your fluency than to improve your correctness. If you follow this path, after some time you may find you can speak the language with ease, but it will be largely your own version of the language — not correct language as it’s spoken by native speakers. In other words, you may become quite fluent in speaking the wrong way.

    Both correctness and fluency matter in learning a language, I think

    I agree with this, for example, there is a lot of Chinglish. "good good study, day day up"😂😂😂

    I agree with this...Both correctness and fluency are important. But it doesn't mean we won't make mistakes. We will learn from our mistakes. Thus, we will have fixed our mistakes in time.

    同意,很多人说不要在意错误,先开口说,但是我的学习方式是自己和自己说,然后回想找出自己的语法错误。
