Welcome to our Home - Lakay Ayiti

Kreyol.Com has been online since December 2nd, 1999 - this site was created to promote the learning of Haitian Creole. To be honest the site was created because the webdesigner was afraid he would forget how to speak Haitian Creole if he did not collect some vocabulary over time. Join us in our journey to keep our Haitian Hearts burning with vivid words of Kreyol.

Haiti


Below you will find a group of English / Kreyol word list. Compiled over the years. This project slowed down after Google Translate started to feature Haitian Creole but we feel there is still room to improve our resources so stay tuned for more updates and improvements to our language services and Kreyol.Com.
