That is a bit of a shame. I thought I had finally come across a useful resource to learn Tok Pisin.

What I am looking for is an audiobook to teach me Pisin. I have an hour's drive to work every day and the same returning home, and nothing but kangaroos and farmers to look at on the way. I want to use that time to learn the language by an audiobook.

if anyone has any ideas where I can get one, please post

please translate these sentences

1. the boy has a brown book
2. the woman is beautiful
3. i have a red tv
4. she likes green cars
5. the teacher has blue hair


My translation:
1. (Dispela) pikinini man i gat (?) wanpela braunpela buk.
2. (Dispela) meri i stap (?) naispela.
3. Mi gatim wanpela redpela piksa boks.
4. Em (i save) i laikim ol grinpela kar.
5. (Dispela) tisa i gat blupela gras.

Is it correct?

Why the suffix "-im" cannot be used with "gat"?
When should I use "stap"? What's the rule?
