Haitian Official Language

Patriote - October 6 2006, 8:49 PM

Well my friend, me too I arrived in Canada when I was 14 years old, and the only language I spoke until I went to Germany was French.

Right now as I am writing these notes, there are thousands of haitians who don't go to the website because they don't understand English.

Please do not misunderstand me, and think I am blaming you of anything.

I clearly understand that you don't speak French and I'm Ok with that. Only keep in mind that the website (which is a great tools for us, Haitians, to communicate among ourselves) exist only for the lucky ones who can speak English or are bilingual.

However, to answer your question, English is by far the international business language.

I also agree for Haitians to learn to speak English fluently.

But still, in the mean time, I suggest that we find a solution for those who can't speak English.

It is an asset to speak at least two languages.

What do you think?

Thank you for your attention.
