Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction on 16 CDs, plus a reading booklet

Haitian Creole is one of the official languages of Haiti, along with French. It is a French-based creole heavily influenced by West African languages. Pimsleur's Haitian Creole teaches the standard dialect spoken in and around the central district and the capital, Port-au-Prince.

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Haitian Creole, Comprehensive includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons.

  • In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.
  • In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
  • In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons begin in Unit 11 and provide you with an introduction to reading Haitian Creole. These lessons are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. In addition, combined Reading Lessons from all the units are included at the end. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format..

    Comments about Haitian Creole Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    The downloadable mp3 makes it so convenient to use while I am commuting. I listen to half a lesson on my way to work and the second half on the way home. I would love to see a second and third course come out for Haitian Creole. There are so many teams from the US who travel to Haiti, so I think it would be a popular item.

        I visit Haiti annually for a mission trip. Last year my Haitian friends called me an Honorary Haitian but requested that I work on my language skills. I thought it would be hard, it is not! This works, it is easy and fun. The words I am learning are applicable to mission trips.

          In preparing for a trip to Haiti I have used the system every day. I have learned a lot. The constant referal back to earlier lessons has helped me retain my learning. Will see how I do in Haiti.
