      Next time, watch a video and learn a thing or two. I can guarantee your spoken English isn’t always pristine. Don’t nit-pick! Do your research if you have to. ‘Irregardless’ is in the English Dictionary. ‘It is a non-standard word for regardless and people may use it from a desire to add emphasis’ even educated speakers.
