    Very helpful!

    I've learned a lot of Creole vocabulary, but this was the most helpful resrouce for learning how to put sentences together in conversation. Very clear explanations helped me figure out the differences between the French I know and the Creole I'm learning, and was the key to me finally being able to put together sentences instead of memorising them. I bought a few copies, and plan on leaving one at the dorms we're staying in for the build!
