By the way, the reason I can't remember stuff about New Zealand English is because my English has changed a bit from living in Japan for six years.
For example -- I have started using some American English because a lot of the textbooks in Japan are in American English so I've got used to it.
Sometimes it's laziness, sometimes it's for conversation flow -- for example I know that if I say "primary school" the conversation is likely be disrupted while they ask what it means ... so I start saying "elementary school" and then I end up just getting used to it.
Japanese English also sometimes creeps in sometimes too.... oh dear.
Anyway, this isn't really a problem for communicating in general. It's only a problem when I start explaining something to a student and get all mixed up half way through.
