comment How do I practise grouping characters into words? At which stage of learning should one expect to be good at this?
My main point is that building vocab builds this skill, I don't think that grouping needs to be practiced independently :)

comment Differentiating “to do a burnout” and “burning tyres”
TL;DR = "Too long; didn't read". It's used either as a reply to someone who has written too much, or as in my case where the TL;DR section is an abbreviated version of the full version.

comment Differentiating “to do a burnout” and “burning tyres”
"Burnout" is quite common for this activity. I think in the US they also say "peel out". "Burn rubber" can also just mean to drive fast, and by extension to do anything fast "we need to burn rubber on this project".

So the term originates from the name of the international day?

It's a generalisation. I'll edit accordingly.
