    Because if the speech is going on about some nuances in Grammar in each language.

    'For example' is used for typical situation, and you may use these "defined examples of the grammar" in speech.

    'For instance' is used for rare or isolated situation which is being only in this situation, and it also may not be used for the other (as common/typical) situation.

    Hey Sir.

    About your second question,I think it's because you haven't chose your learning language.for doing that go here:
    http://www.italki.com/my/profile/languages.htm
    and choose English as your learning language.I think this would solve your problem.
    Good luck.
