Haiti is also known for voodoo and zombies :P

I remember once having watched a documentary about the "real" zombies in Haiti and I was like :shock:
Apparently there is some sort of drug they use which can make people seem as if they were dead.

Why do you bring the lwe into our forum!!! Are you trying to invite them into our homes or something???
Voodoo is a serious cause for superstition...Be careful...

Then we need a Haitian very badly. How can we find one?

Now we are turning our practise thread into a cultural one? :evil:

I am interested in Haitian culture. Recipes, customs, everything. Bring it on Marcus. :--)

I'll see what I can do about finding someone who can read and write and who is familiar with the slang. As for being corrected on your KA, KA is similar to Swahili - it has many variants, and there are an inordinate number of ways of doing something. When Haïtians hear other Haïtians speak in a way that sounds different, as in Swahili, the accept it for that. It can be annoying at times, especially when I am trying to check what my mother tells me against grammar resources and the contradict :roll: :? :shock: , but I assure you will get away with your mistakes/differences as long as you make reasonable ones...

Fine! I'll start inventing words then. :twisted:

Seriously, how is it in Haitian schools then? Say in dictation activities? If there is no specific norm for writing, everybody would get straight As easily. :roll:

Maybe, but maybe it is done in French instead. :wink: This seems to be the norm.

Wi, epi ak yon diksyoné, m appran vit nouvo mo.

Yes, and with a dictionary, I learn new words quickly.

I used to confused mwen and m, now I understand m=I and mwen=me. Right?

I think mwen means both me and my.
You can also say mwen and m to say "I" :wink:
M is mwen's abbreviation.

Bence mwen hem me hem my demek.
Mwen ve m yi "I" demek için de kullanabilirsin :wink:
M,mwen'in kısaltmasıdır.
