Haitian Creole

Yoni Rubin

With more than 10 million native speakers, Haitian Creole has the largest Creole-speaking community in the world. Haitian Creole is spoken in countries such as Canada, France, Chili, and the United States, especially in Florida, where it is the third most commonly spoken language after English and Spanish. Haitian Creole language skills are valuable to employers in health, education, or business industry in many cities within the United States including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa, New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Boston. In Haitian Creole, taught by William Pierre Blanc, you will learn to speak, read, listen, and write. Not to mention learn about a fascinating culture!
