Does KNOWING = DOING?

Please take a look at this sentence:

“She don’t like to play tennis.”

Is there anything strange to you? Most of you probably immediately can find the easy grammar mistake. Of course, grammatically, it should be:

“She doesn’t like to play tennis.”

So the question is, why is it so easy to see on paper or screen, but so many students have trouble actually saying this correctly? Well, there are a few reasons, but basically the answer is simply:
