Abstract

This article focuses on the initiation of awareness of dialectal sources among teachers in areas where non-standard languages are spoken. I believe that it is possible for teachers to work on the structure of languages spoken by the children, plan bilingual teaching strategies and concentrate on the instructional language of the classroom. However, it is important to keep in mind that children�s regular language use exhibits a lot of variation.
