This conversation should be your first stop in learning Haitian Creole. We recommend you spend an entire week mastering this lesson. Here’s how to make it stick:
- Listen and follow along. Repeat at least 3 times or until you are comfortable.
- Read through the Haitian Creole phrases aloud, trying to match the pronunciations you heard. Listen again to check your progress.
- Write the phrases on flashcards (our print version coming soon). Practice them until you can go both directions without error. I.E. Creole to English and then English to Creole.
- Return to the audio on this page several times to make sure your pronunciation matches the speakers.
- Let us know when you’re ready for the Kreyol live test – we’ll schedule a time to talk on the phone with Estherline.
