Queens Public Library will be offering a free 7-Week Course of Haitian Creole (KREYÒL). The course is for people with Little Or No Prior Knowledge of the language. Participants will work on speaking, reading, writing, and listening comprehension in the context of the Haitian culture. Core concepts of grammar, phonetics, and other aspects of language structure will be covered. At the end of the course, participants will be able to conduct simple conversations and write at the basic level in Kreyòl.

The course will be taught by NYU educator Wynnie Lamour [1], with a focus on language and communication. Lamour has a BA in linguistics from Cornell University and an MA in Urban Affairs from CUNY Queens College. She has spent the last several years teaching Haitian Creole in the New York City area to a variety of language learners, including nonprofit professionals, public school teachers, and entrepreneurs. Her teaching philosophy is rooted in the concepts of community, connectedness, pride, and respect for the Haitian language and culture.

The 1.5 hour classes will be held on Thursdays, From May 9 To June 20 (6:30 To 8 PM) At The Central Library Teen Space Meeting Room (89-11 Merrick Boulevard, Jamaica).

Space is limited. Those interested in attending can register HERE [2].
