The thing it hints at is context. We speak and write differently in different contexts. What some students are not taught (or not taught sufficiently) is when and how to switch.

If students are not taught to identify contexts first, they might see the different rules and standards as a burden. They might opt to use the form of language they are most comfortable with regardless of context.

Like it or not, this is a failure of teaching and learning.
