Learning Creole

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you might find this interesting.

As you might know, I’m preparing for the first of what might be several trips to Haiti, so I thought I might try to learn a few words of Creole.  I think it’s always good to know a few words of the local language when I travel.   It can really break the ice with people, especially the kids.

I discovered an iphone/ipad app called “BYKI Hatian Creole”, by Transparent Language, Inc.  It seems to fit the bill pretty well when it comes to learning common phrases, which is about all I can hope to do at this point.

If you’re interested in trying out a bit of Haitian Creole, here’s a link to the app in the iTunes App Store.
