One of the most important words to learn in Haitian Creole is the word “Haiti” itself. This can be a little tricky so we’ve made the following audio pronunciations recordings to help you practice.
Ayiti – Haiti
Aysian – Haitian
As you might expect, the adjective “ayisyen” is added to many phrases to signify something distinctive to the Haitian people. You can practice these examples below.
Kreyol ayisyen – Haitian Creole
Lang ayisyen – Haitian Language
Pawòl ayisyen – Haitian speach
Manje ayisyen – Haitian food
Danse ayisyen – Haitian dance
Fanm ayisyen – Haitian woman
Sometimes you will see these same words written in French: Haïti and Haïtien. It should come as no surprise that the word “kreyol” is often substituted for the word “ayisyen” in the phrases above. I.E. manje kreyol, danse kryol, fanm kreyol.
