Haitian Creole! Poukisa Ou Pa Pale Kreyòl? Pourquoi vous ne parlez-créole?

45



What are Haitians doing Wrong? Haitian’s you have it all wrong. The best thing that you can ever do is to teach your children your native language.

Haiti true hope is through the diaspora. Why would the Haitian diaspora want to invest in Haiti if the number one thing that should come easy to them they never learned?

  1. If my mom speaks Creole and I respond in English she tells me she doesn't speak English and continue speaking Creole loll. Love it! To all my zoes learn how to speak creole man, teach your children and yeah your children to teach their children. Keep it going! Anale!

  2. I'm half Haitian and grew up listening to Creole so I understand it but I was always afraid of practicing so I never learned to speak fluently. This year I want to learn it because I want my future kids to know the language

  3. In St.lucia they didn't wsnt kids to speak creole. They speak to you in creole and you answer in English. I think in creole sometimes but I can't articulate it and it pisses me off.

  4. Jews in America have been letting their language die for a while… Only Israeli Americans speak Hebrew and these days Yiddish has been dying with younger people…

    Also a lot of Indian people in America (except for Tamil people and Punjabi Sikhs) tend to lose their language very easily because even in India English gets you farther… :/

  5. I just went through this with a set of twins. I ran into their mother and was speaking Kreyol to their mom. The daughter said "can you translate cause I don't understand?" And I'm like… how do you NOT understand your mom? Don't you speak Kreyol to your mom everyday? They said they don't talk like their mom because they don't want to. And I'm like, the only advantage you have over all of your classmates is the ability to speak Kreyol. Their mom said that she speaks Kreyol to them all the time, but because they don't have any family besides her that speak Kreyol here in the US they aren't learning.

    Which brings me to this… kids need to be surrounded by their own culture and language. And then sending kids to Haiti needs to become the norm. Ask a Dominican kid how often, despite being poor, that their parents sent them to DR and they will tell you that they spent their summers in DR or PR or whatever their home country is.

    Full immersion for our children won't hurt them. If anything it will make them prouder of their heritage and not afraid to immerse others in it.

  6. I'm mixed with Haitian , Jamaican , Trinidad & African American … I wish I could speak good creole but it's hard for me because my family is more American English and Patois ..sometimes I feel disconnected from my Haitian side even though I'm more Haitian and Jamaican than Trini and African American

  7. I hear you…i grew up in Montreal and i'm 1st gen haitian and i grew up speaking french only and although i understand creole very well my parents never encouraged me to speak creole at home and my spoken creole is weak so i always answer in french when my parents speak to me in creole and now i feel sad that my creole is bad and that i won't be able to pass down my language to my children :(

  8. Hi. Lovely n true video. As a SAINT LUCIAN BORN N ALSO MY HUSBAND, WE ARE GUILTY OF NOT TEACHING OUR KIDS ENOUGH LUCIAN CREOLE. THEY WERE BORN IN UK BUT WENT HOME TO LIVE FOR A WHILE BUT THEY WERE LITTLE.THEY ARE BACK UN UK BUT COMPLETELY FOR GOT THE LANGUAGE. NOW MY SON ASK US WHAT IS THIS N THAT IN PATOIS. WE ARE TRYING HARD NOW TO SHOW THEM. KEEP IT UP HAITIAN

  9. Love this. I'm first gen Haitian American. My creole is weak I'll admit. Growing up I dealt with feeling intimidated because I knew my creole was weak. Nowadays when I speak with my parents we go between English and creole. I mainly get to test out my mom-skills at work with another 1st Gen HA – we laugh and get by (she's way more fluent).

  10. I totally understand.. My husband is Haitian. I'm American, and my children dont speak Haitian Creole. I ask my husband all the time. What he hell are you doing?? Robbing them of their culture, whats part of them. I only hear him speak when he's on the phone with his parents (which isn't often enough). His mom speaks absolutely no English.

  11. This is so interesting because this problem lies even within polynesian groups living in Australia and New Zealand. I still get very intimidated speaking my language with a local cause they speak so dam fast. I find it inspiring tho how the jews, cubans and armenians create strong communities through schools and events.

  12. I am learning Creole. My great grandfather was gullah geechee was never able to meet him. Gullah is a form Creole so I wanted to learn creole so I could at least have one language of my ethnic background

  13. When i was younger I used to say words with a hatian accent if I didn't know them but I respond to them in either language they don't really care

  14. I am very sorry to hear that. However, the situation in Canada is very different. 2Nd and even nowadays 3rd generation Haitians are generally fluent or at least, can get by. This might be attributed to the fact that French is an official language here. (Most of Haitians integrated the mainstream French-speaking community)

    Meet our former Head of State, The Right Honourable Michaelle Jean, Governor General of Canada (2005-2010) who came at a very young age.

  15. I'm not Haitian, but I'm dating a guy from Haiti who has two daughters. I don't think the woman he had the children with is Haitian either. Whenever they talk on the phone it's in English. But anyway, I'm not sure why but he doesn't teach Haitian Creole to his kids. He taught English and Creole in Haiti before moving to the US apparently, so it's not like he doesn't know how to…. :/
