This course is an introduction to Haitian Creole. My name is Jean Marc Stuppard. I am a multimedia publisher, owner of Studio 38. I am not only a co author of the course but I am also a student. I must admit that my Haitian creole is limited and in need of an upgrade. That is what this course proposes to do.
I am pleased to partner with Mr. Emmanuel Darius, a student of linguistics, a God sent if you will, to present to you an introduction to Haitian Creole. This course will give you a solid foundation in Grammar and reading of Haitian Creole along with basic conversational vocabulary. This course is not intended for non Haitians only, but it is created also for the diaspora of Haitians living outside of the mother country that has not had the opportunity to complete its study and knowledge of this beautiful language which brings closeness to the Haitian culture.
"Where have you been all my life Mr. Darius?" That should be the words uttered from your mouth when you realize the investment in the community Mr. Darius has made and his commitment to passing along his knowledge of the language, the mother tongue which embodies the cultural heritage, the nuances that translation cannot convey or transfer. To comprehend the language by the benefit of immersion is but one of the steps required to truly master any language.
We plan to publish an intermediate and advanced course to enrich your journey and quest to read, write and understand Haitian Creole
