Hi Ronnie:
Many thanks for your videos. You really help me.

Ronnie. Your lessons are very useful. I recommend engvid to my ESL Language Learners. I have posted the below inquiry on various ESL blogs, etc. and ESL teachers agree….they can’t find a single resource. I could put together a video, but that is not my forte. As such, I thought of you. If you have time, the ESL industry could use a short video on this topic. Here it goes: Inquiry: We as ESL-TEFL teachers need to educate Language Learners around the world and put an end to the confusion about these words: SLANG vs DIALECT vs PRONUNCIATION vs ACCENT: Can you share any resources (visual aid or other) to clarify the differences. Some people will say British English is slang and then they say American English is slang…….it’s obvious that they are not educated. I just went to a library in Italy and the librarian who has been there for 30 years said my friend who speaks perfect English speaks Slang. I find it very insulting and alarming because if she is the librarian then she is sharing that with people who visit the library. I explained the following: English is English. Italian is Italain. Slang is equal to dialect (example: Abbruzzese a made up language (dialect)…it’s not Italian.) My mother in law is from Naples. She doesn’t speak Italian, she speaks in dialect (a made up Italian language). ACCENT is a British Accent or American Accent. My husband is Italian, but he was raised in England so he has a British accent when he speaks…period! Pronunciation=proper pronunciation in any language – we don’t say kiss-id. We say kissed. Everyone “sounds” different. No two people sound alike. I will never “sound” native Italian as I have an American accent. As I have not been able to find one reliable resource to explain these confused words, this is the best explanation I can give to hep them understand and not toss the word “Slang” around. If I am wrong, I stand corrected. If you have an ESL visual aid that you can share about this inquiry, I would appreciate sharing it with my Language Learners as part of their initial lesson. Thank you.
