A key element in Jingles training is the employment of the TRAINING MODE. Whereas English (and all other languages) is spoken through the employment of the “regular mode” (each “regular mode” with its own language specific set of speech motor skills), the TRAINING MODE is an alternate system used, in the main, for having Jingles clients go through their paces as they seek to develop nativelike or near nativelike speech motor skills employment techniques for the “target language(s)” of their choice.

Originally the TRAINING MODE was specifically created along the lines of athletic training, whereby the learner (or “client”) is called upon to use kerm speech motor skills techniques to degrees over and above those called for in competition. Based on this principle, Jingles clients are called upon to “push themselves to various limits” as they create the power, endurance, flexibility, and technique which characterize their target allophonomes. Jingles training, built upon a base of TRAINING MODE motor skills techniques, thus guarantees that the learner/client achieves parity with the speech motor skills capabilities of native speakers of the language or languages in question.

The TRAINING MODE (TM) also has three additional functions:

1) The instructor can use the TM to probe for weaknesses that mere analysis
of “regular mode” production cannot discover.
2) The instructor often finds it very helpful to describe certain gestures by
saying them in the TM, which (certainly to more advanced Jingles clients) is
much more transparent than the “regular mode” is.
3) For clients whose target language allophonomes have already reached the
native level (and, indeed, for native speakers of the language in question who
wish to polish their already native-level skills further!), employment of the TM
is proving to be quite helpful as a mild form of “shock treatment”, which renders
target language allophonomes more malleable, with the resultant defossilization
allowing for efficacious, high-level pronunciation development.

So there you have one of the Jingles theory’s most important concepts – that of the TRAINING MODE!
When the above mentioned manifestations of this concept are properly incorporated into Jingles training by our staff of very capable instructors, the results clients experience are absolutely phenomenal.
