We’ve all been told that there’s a “proper” way to speak English. What if that wasn’t true? There are thousands of dialects of English that are “non-standard”, but still carry cultural and historic significance. Join Nicola Brayan as she explores English dialects around the world and how language shapes identity, communities, and, too often, discrimination. This story challenges us to think before we judge the way others speak.
