Perhaps you are interested in taking Haitian Creole because of the recent tragedy, the earthquake of 1/12/10, which was widely covered in the media. Or perhaps you have Haitian family and would like to learn more about your roots. The native Creole speaker and linguist who teaches these courses, David Tezil, will share with you more than just vocabulary and grammar. You will have an opportunity to learn about the history of Haitifrom the time of the slave-led revolution through current events. From the many proverbs used in daily conversation to the literary innovations of Haitian authors, we will delve into the rich layers of Haitian culture. We will also discuss how Haiti might proceed in the period of renewal and rebuilding which lies ahead.

As home to the nation’s foremost Creole Institute, Indiana University is pleased to offer students the opportunity to learn about the Haitian language and culture -- and we welcome you to join us this fall!
