Thanks & Acknowledgements
Thank you to Mandaly Louis-Charles, for coming alongside HaitiHub from the very beginning to help pilot our materials as a Creole Skype-instructor in 2011, and for helping with the development of our resources for our intermediate and advanced learners. The sweetcoconuts blog is a huge blessing to anyone trying to learn Creole, and a wonderful resource for us as well! Mèsi anpil zanmi nou!
Thank you to Wally Turnbull, the success of our system rests perhaps nowhere more strongly than on the collaboration built between Creole Made Easy and HaitiHub. Thank you for welcoming us into the Durham area, and for being one of our regular go-to’s. CME showed us how it’s done, and your help keeps us going!
Thank you to Professor Jacques Pierre for the time spent looking over the rough drafts of some of our material, and for inviting us into your classroom at Duke University. The insights you’ve freely shared from your expertise and accomplishment as a Creole educator have strengthened our program and teaching significantly.
Thank you to Dr. Michel DeGraff for generously giving of your time to help clarify some of the more challenging aspects of the language for us. Your expertise and explanations, as well as overall feedback, are very much appreciated.
Meet our Founder!
Who We Are:
We are an online language learning resource (click here to get started!) created in partnership with some of the most effective Creole educators in the field (including the authors and publishers of Creole Made Easy and the author of the Sweet Coconuts educational blog).
We are a growing network of nearly two-thousand Creole language learners.
We are a coordination tool encouraging individuals and organizations to communicate with each other, share domain knowledge, streamline efforts, and help one another do the work they do better.
We are a team that is passionate about the potential that language has to create, build, and sustain relationships.
Our short term goal is to teach the Haitian Creole language to volunteers, development staff, and U.S.-based professionals who work with Haitian populations. We do this by providing the highest quality learning resources available anywhere.
Our long term goal is to leverage the power of language to affect a larger shift in the way humanitarian aid is done in Haiti.
Ann travay ansanm!
