    I don't speak Gullah, so I'm afraid I don't know. Sorry.

    I'm not familiar with Gullah. I only know that it's spoken on islands off the southern coast of the U.S.

    The information at Answers.com might be of interest.

    I would take into consideration the students' purpose in becoming proficient in standard English.

    What is their purpose?

    I think this is worth considering and speaking about as a motivational factor. I think it's good to develop an awareness of one's purpose in such a situation as this. This is not to say that they wouldn't be aware of their purpose now.


    [I don't feel it should be necessary to capitalize "standard" in "standard English".What kind of English is it? It's standard English.I would capitalize it as part of a title. Other than that, I would prefer to not capitalize it.]
