Speedy language learners indeed don't worry about the correct pronunciation too much. They just blast away and rest comes with time.
When I started to learn Portuguese I could hardly hear the difference between ão and au, let alone use it adequately.Very much apparently like our Mrs Jones from Canada, who spends the winter months on our shores each year and has picked up some Portuguese over the years. She doesn't loose any sleep over her pronunciation but Maria, the wife of João , the baker, does.
She has been told that Mrs Jones has been overheard telling her Portuguese friends that "ela adorra o pau do Sr. João".
