Does anyone here know of any resources for learning either Haitian or Louisiana Creole? The two languages are actually quite different, but I'm not sure if there will be sources readily available for learning Haitian Creole, and I am interested in Louisiana Creole, so either would be fine. If possible, I'd much prefer online resources. I have a Linux-based system and can't download many computer programs. Books are also okay, if you can vouch for them; I'm worried about spending too much money (when I don't actually have much money) on a language learning book that turns out to not be very good. Also, I've been wondering: Might it be a good idea, if I'm not able to find resources for Kreyòl immediately, to concentrate on learning French instead? Both Haitian Creole and Louisiana Creole are French-based creole languages, and they actually have some notable similarities and a lot of words that are just slightly different to the French ones. What do you guys think - would that be a legitimate strategy for learning a creole language?
