We are currently preparing the first video tutorials. Our expectation is that they will be ready by summer of 2016.
The tutorials will show Nonstandard English-speakers how to situationally switch - back and forth - between the dialects they grew up speaking and the mainstream Standard English dialect.
Students need oral and written Standard English for schoolwork and standardized testing. Job-seekers need Standard English for employment interviews, promotions and career fulfillment. In other words, regardless of age, most of us need Standard English in order to successfully compete - academically and professionally.
The tutorials will present lessons that demonstrate how to switch between a single pronuncation or grammatical difference. For example, how to say "ask" for "ax," "it's" for "iss" and "bake" for "baked (bakt)" - or - how to say or write "she's happy" for "she happy" or "John walked (or walks) to school" for "John walk to school."
The videos will demonstrate our 5-step method - the Speak Standard, Too systematic approach that introduces one dialectal difference at a time, which - in turn - eliminates those well-meaning but confusing, frustrating and embarrassing random corrections from classroom teachers and professional colleagues and bosses.
The tutorial format will consist of either an instructor teaching you - the viewer - or - the instructor teaching a student whose primary English dialect is nonstandard. So, if anyone is interested in participating as an on-camera student, please contact me. It doesn't matter how old you are or which Nonstandard English dialect you speak - our 5-step bi-dialectal method is applicable to any grammatical or pronunciation rule that differs from its comparable Standard English rule.
Finally, if you have a request for a tutorial on a particular pronunciation or grammatical rule, contact me and we'll gladly produce a video for that feature.
Thanks for your patience and continued interest!
