"Think" probably refers to the past. She's a ~ 17-year girl now. But why is it "think"? Thanks.

    Perhaps "bad" is too strong. Careless might be a better description. The English used on television has been written by someone, and that person can make mistakes in their work just like anyone can.

    "Think" could just as easily refer to the present in this spontaneous speech. That fits with "My dad thinks ..." and not "My dad thought ..." She describes soemthing about her past and then says something about the present. (Just going on the rext in this thread )
