The Haitian Creole Language
Haitian Creole is one of the two official languages of Haiti, along with French. It is a French-based creole heavily influenced by West African languages as well as Portuguese, Spanish and the indigenous Caribbean language of Taíno. Pimsleur's Haitian Creole teaches the standard dialect spoken in and around the central district and the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Comments about Haitian Creole, Conversational:

Quick and easy lessons which progress from one to the other. I would just listen to one lesson a day on my way to work, and sometimes review that lesson again on my way home. I've worked with Haitian clients for years and always had a hard time following the language. This beginner's course focuses on becoming comfortable greeting people, asking directions, and shopping.

Service and delivery comments:

I would add a vocabulary list and pronunciation guide for all words used in the program, broken down by lesson as well as an alphabetical master list. Creole, like French, is NOT a language you can learn by reading, but sometimes seeing the word spelled out helps with the nuances of pronunciation.
