Do you occasionally misspell words in your native language now that you are learning a new language?

I noticed today that I put an e at the end of a word that didn't need it. Whoops!

I never would have made this mistake before...

Yes I do that a bit too. The other weird side-effect is automatically trying to translate things that people of saying to me in daily life - like i'm trying to get extra duolingo points as I'm going through my normal day. Anyone else do that?

No, but I'd say that is a good stage to be at while learning, I hope I start to do that eventually

Ten minutes after writing that I wrote chichen.

I keep thinking that will happen! When you're writing carotte so many times instead of the usual carrot, things are bound to get confusing.

Nope can't say that I have.

my you has become yo

I loose a lot of hearts that way. I type Yo and don't bother with the u when trying to type "you" in English
