About the Book

The Creole-English Grammar (it is written in the book Kreyòl) is one of a series of Bèl Kontwòl kreyòl books designed to teach or learn the Haitian French-based but African-rooted Creole language by taking control of it and by comparing it with other languages, namely English, Spanish, and French, among others. Nowadays, speaking only one language is not enough in this era of globalization.

Most of the songs are in background in the CD of the Creole conversations.)
