Ebonics is actually a method for teaching Standard English to children who speak Black English. It is considered to be a form of ESL. The goal of Ebonics is to make teachers aware that children who speak Black English are using a different grammatical structure, which causes misunderstanding, and allows teachers to use the childrens knowledge of Black English as an aid in teaching Standard English. Children who learn Standard English through Ebonics are bilingual.
