Hi there! Welcome to Learn Sranan Tongo.

My name is Brian, I'm 15 years old, and I'm from the United States. I love uncommon languages, and particularly love creoles. 

The language of Suriname, Sranan Tongo, really interests me and I am on a journey to learn it.

Sranan Tongo is, as Wikipedia puts it, a fusion of English, Dutch, Portuguese and Central and West African languages. How cool!

This site includes lessons from an old Peace Corps manual for learning Sranan Tongo, which unfortunately no longer exists on the web.

I hope you may find this site useful in your exploration of Sranan Tongo.
