Bonjour in Creole

Republic of Haiti has two official languages; French and Creole.
Creole is widely spoken in daily life in Haiti, and people usually use French in official occasions, as well as written documents.

In JEN Haiti office, Haitian staff speaks Creole.
Let me introduce some words in Creole.

Hello = Bonju
Thank you = Mèsi
Thank you very much!= Mèsi anpil
No problem = Pa gen pwoblèm
Really? = Sa’wm dim la

As some of you might notice, some words are similar to French words.
If you have a chance to come to Haiti, we would be very happy if you use some of the Creole words above with us!
