However we at Fluenz consider that it's important to teach the way people actually speak, to help our users understand better in real-life situations.
This is why we've chosen to teach both the complete, literate forms and the contracted, oral forms in our program, at least for the most common ones like pro/pra etc
For the same reason, we've chosen to teach both the literate, formal pronoun "Nós" + its conjugations, and its oral, informal version: "a gente". "A gente" is so commonly used by people when they speak, that it seemed essential for us to teach it and allow our users to understand what people say in many daily situations in Brazil.
In any case, since the program always accepts both forms, the "literate" and the "oral" one, users are free to use whichever they prefer, according to the situation or to personal preferences. And this way, they get to practice the language in a more comprehensive way.
