Talk Like a Jamaican! - Jamaican Patwa (Patois) Lessons for All Ages and Stages

Jamaican Patwa (Patois) or Creole,is in the Heart and Soul of every Jamaican,or as we call each other, 'Yardie'.
It’s a colorful, vibrant and incredibly expressive language filled with a ton load of love and gut busting laughter!
IF you understand it that is. Truth is,unless you’re a yardie,related to them, or are in some way familiar enough with the dialect,it’s hardly something you can just readily pick up on. And the Patwa Hollywood tries to sell you in their movies? Don’t buy it. We always wonder who’s teaching them.
Learn from a real native and let’s have fun!
Maybe you’ve always wondered what that one Jamaican song you really like but can’t understand,said.
Is it that coworker that you know is really funny but you just can’t get what they’re saying?
Or perhaps you plan on traveling here someday and wanna be able to understand what the person trying to sell you something is saying (because believe me,someone will be trying to sell you something ). Doesn’t matter. I’m here to help make it make sense.
Come chat some Patwa wid me! =)

Do you want to truly communicate with someone? Is there someone in your life who you’re looking to reach on a more personal level? Or perhaps you’re looking to be more open about yourself but you just don’t know how. I struggled with this for a long time. I’d have conversation after conversation with friends,family members or even coworkers. Somehow,it seemed like the needs still weren’t being met on either side. Or worse yet,on their side but never mine. I yielded to this and settled with the expectation that this is obviously just how life goes,even if it’s frustrating. When I eventually did find my voice,the confidence was growing,but somehow it’s like I still wasn’t being heard. That’s because I was talking,but never Communicating. And even when I did,it wasn’t being done effectively (believe me,there’s a huge difference). Did it seem like I took a peek inside your head while you were reading this? Were you nodding along mentally? It’s such a common struggle. And if you happen to be an introvert in a sea of loud voices,you likely know what it’s like to be drowned out a lot of the times. The thing is,a struggle like this can be a hold back to any kind of relationship that has the potential to thrive and flourish. But with the time and willingness to at least try,I can promise you from personal experience that it doesn’t have to be. Communication is a powerful tool,it’s even been described as "the lifeblood of any healthy relationship". But first,you gotta know HOW to do it. Are you communicating,or are you just talking? Is there a difference? Let’s find out. Let’s build bridges, Let’s delve beyond words, Let’s start somewhere, Let’s Talk!

| Innovative ESL Lessons Online to Become Immersed in the Language & Activate Vocabulary |
I have always treated my students as individuals with their own story and passions and so I dedicate myself to design my own materials which will match their needs and interests. Because of my studies and indispensable TedTalks I became interested in implementing unconventional student-oriented methods into my everyday teaching. During my classes I use apps such as HeadsUp, BlackStories, Kahoot and Padlet to make them more interactive and motivating. I truly believe that education does not have to be system-determined and in 21st century students deserve to be taught with appropriate technology and so I have started to teach online. I hope you will give it a shot too :)
