WHEN, FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME, PEOPLE ASK YOU: 

"what do you mean...?"

"...YOU'RE NOT FLUENT? ... I MEAN THAT'S LITERALLY YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE FOR PETE'S SAKE. I DON'T GET IT!"

WHEN YOU HEAR THAT

what doom loop immediately

goes off in your mind?

Is it the feeling of being:

  1. triggered

  2. ashamed

  3.  annoyed

  4. embarrassed, or even

  5. sad?

 

Maybe a mix of all of the above?

have people going around being rewarded for assuming that worth as a BIPOC native speaker directly correlates with how “well” you perform:

  • nailing the "perfect accent"

  • passing as "native" (whatever that means)

  • rattling off a "perfect" knowledge of the ABCs of your history and birth culture

In this fractured paradigm, it's as if you're expected to entertain a mimicry of both your native culture and the one you're born into to earn your way into conditional legitimacy.

 

assimilationist culture & bad pedagogy

THE TRUTH IS

THIS ALL MAY

lead you to start: 

  • questioning your own worth insofar as your cultural relevance, birthright, and identity go 

  • feeling pressured into learning and speaking “fluently” aaalll the languages that come with your birthplace and your bloodline

  • feeling insecure and inadequate when it comes to speaking publicly in your native language, especially in rooms full of “bred-and-born (fellow) native speakers”

  • feeling like the odd one out at dinner parties with the fam because you were born “here” and not “there”

Sounds familiar?

That’s because, same as you, being a BIPOC third culture native, I had to learn how to:

 

  • reclaim my roots on my own terms beyond the feelings of shame, inadequacy, and hurt, by coming into my own through the development of an unwavering sense of self as a culturally fluid being

speak like never before (in aaallll my languages!) with great fluency right from day 01 by claiming and owning my self-determined self-expression

Black & White

IT'S PARTICULARLY TRICKY TO (RE)LEARN NOT ONLY YOUR ANCESTRAL LEGACY, CULTURE, HISTORY, AND ITS LANGUAGE, BUT ALSO, MORE IMPORTANTLY; 

"where do i fit in?"

I MEAN, I WAS 

too Black to be Canadian ...

... too Western to be Afro. 

No book, schooling, or training teaches you how to harmonize the totality of your identity and lived experience into a state of cultural and linguistic fluency that subsumes grammar, speaking, self-expression, and the third culture experience, under one high-impact experiential learning journey.

To boot, I was too advanced to be a beginner, but too stuck when it came to public speaking to be a true intermediate.

 

I was caught in the middle. Stuck in the in-between.

 

Figuratively and literally.

Linguistically and identitarily.

but wait for it

HERE'S THE BEST PART.

You are not the problem. Read that again. 

As James Clear says (I’m paraphrasing a little bit here): “You do not rise to the level of your goals, you fall to the level of your systems.”

 

In other words, the reason why you haven’t mastered your native language yet (and everything that comes with it) is because:

 

  • you don’t even know how you learn (yet), let alone how you learn languages

  • you’re being reactive towards the pressure to pass and conform by trying to perform legitimacy to the wrong audience (and yes, that includes your family!)

  • you’re trying to fit into either cultures as if they are indeed a fixist monolith at the cost of living out your truest self-expression and self-determination

  • you have a scattered fits-and-starts way of jumping in and out of the process because you lack clear focus, guidance, discipline, direction, methodology, and motivation

  • you let “life” get in the way of your heart’s truest desires by entertaining the overwhelm, overload, fatigue, stress, and pressure of your daily “busy-iness” in ways that prevent you from being truly present and available for the journey of reclaiming your roots

HERE'S THE KICKER:

You do NOT have to choose between:

OWNING WHO YOU ARE ...

with purpose, on purpose, with language and culture as your vessels, doesn’t have to be;

if it is, it's because ...

THERE'S PROBABLY SOMETHING ...

you're doing wrong, unbeknowst to you.

And what that happens that’s when you end up writing yourself off by saying your own variation of; 

Have You Ever Thought That ... 

it isn’t what you are doing that’s the problem, but rather how you’re doing it?

You do not have to have it all figured out to even start or succeed. I’ve got the thing just for you to get you over the hump forever. This is my gift to you; my exclusive 3-part high-impact self-paced ecourse that helps you; speak like never before, tap into high-level fluency, connect with your roots, achieve true self-expression, affirm and develop an unflagging sense of self, and reclaim the cultural identity you've never truly lived full out until today.

this is for you

IF YOU HAVE EVER:

THROWN IN GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD IN PAYING TUITION FOR AN EDUCATION THAT FELL REMARKABLY SHORT OF EMPOWERING YOU TO SPEAK CONFIDENTLY AND FEEL THAT CONNECTION TO HOME, LAND, SELF, AND ANCESTRY

run away from the phone whenever mom was trying to get you to talk with grandma back home because of how ashamed and uncomfortable you were when it came to speaking with fam and fellow natives 

TALKED THE TALK OF PASSING DOWN YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE AND BIRTH CULTURE TO YOUR (FUTURE) KIDS AND FAM WITHOUT EVER GETTING AROUND TO SPEAKING IT FOR YOURSELF

hit the fits-and-starts cycle of starting, stopping, and restarting the process of (re)learning your birth language and culture by jumping on the wagon of the latest trend (app, website, software, etc.) without being able to generate viable results or consistency

The thing is ...

Layers

SCHOOL

doesn't address identity as part of the curriculum and learning XP and overemphasizes grammar and rote memorization in ways that deny the reality of your day-to-day conversational needs

Brush Strokes

APPS

give you this chopped-off, beginner-first, piecemeal, incongruent, itemized, vocabulary list of words taken out of context without providing you tools to do more than simply rattle off fixed phrases whose components you can't even fully comprehend and explain to yourself

Layers

WEBSITES

can supply you with grammar-focused tidbits that help you fill in the blanks of your general knowledge language-wise, but they don't necessarily move past chunks of grammar and/or stereotypical higlights of what "culture" is

Your ecourse features:

  • short action-driven video series

  • worked examples

  • professional template suites

  • fun sheets

  • learning hacks

  • amazing resource bundles

  • weekly challenges and more!

Here's a little bit about me (in case we don't know each other yet)

Parallel Lines

HELLO,
LOVE!

DSCN3093_edited.jpg

I am Ches :)

I've gone full circuit in the universal language journey XP; over the past decade+ I have taught, coached, mentored, and tutored folx from elementary, corporate, college, to uni alike in reconnecting with their roots to step into their truth.

Contemporaneously, I've gone on to study about 9 or so languages (for fun) and achieve C2 level fluency in 5 of them (namely, Haitian Creole, Italian, Spanish, English, and French). What's more, I have gone solo on all of them (whilst also leveraging formal education schooling), by going as far as teaching myself my own lost native Afro-Indigenous language; Haitian Creole.

I am developing sliding-edge scholarship on anti-oppressive critical language learning/teaching pedagogy.

I am a multi-award-winning language expert and thought leader on EDI, anti-o, decolonization, transracial allyship, and the third culture.
