Book Review

"The Colors of Haiti – Koulè Ayiti – Los Colores de Haití" is a reading ebook about the beautiful colors of all things Haitian. It's about the beautiful color of most Haitians as in 'grimo, grimèl and marabou,' the color of the sky and the ocean, the bright colors of Tap Tap, taxis, and buses. It's about the color of Haitian Carnival, rara, popular bands, and Jalouzi neighborhood. Most importantly, it's about the bright colors that Haitians enjoy wearing, the colors of 'pèpè' or used clothes for sale in all Haitian markets. It's also about the colors of the treeless mountains that are being grilled by the Caribbean sun. Trees are like hats that cover the head of the mountain. They are like teeth in the mouth of the country.

"The Colors of Haiti – Koulè Ayiti – Los Colores de Haití" is an ebook that encourages Haitians to plant fruit trees and all the great trees that made the country the pearl of the Antilles.

Haitian News: 2015 Carnival News, Kanaval Ayisyen an 2015 - Kanaval la Anile akoz de Aksidan Cha a

Haitian News: 2015 Carnival News, Kanaval Ayisyen an 2015 - Kanaval la Anile akoz de Aksidan Cha a

Mardi Gras / Madigra, Katastwòf ak Panik nan Kanaval Flè ak Woz 2015 an Ayiti

Ayiti Anile Kanaval 2015 lan Aprè 18 moun te mouri ak plis de 78 lòt moun te blese sou trajedi cha a

Sujè Konvèsasyon ak Dyalòg an Ayiti epi Atravè Lemond

Anvan nou kòmanse pale de aksidan sa-a, ann eksplike ki sa yon cha ye. Ayisyen ki pale Fransè ak Kreyòl rele’l yon char. Yon cha pa yon [ ‘chat,’ cat in English]. Yon cha se yon ‘float in English. O non. Yon cha se tankou yon gwo kamyon byen wo ki pote gwo aparèrèy mizikal tankou tout enstriman, opalè ke gwoup mizikal va bezwen pou’l anime oswa pete tenpan moun k’ap koute oswa ekspektatè yo ki kanpe sou tout bò kote’l oubyen sou bò wout la. Sa vle di cha a pote non sèlman manm gwoup la, li pote envite espesyal ak zanmi gwoup la tou. Si ou pa yon bèl fanm ki gen kontak ak manm gwoup la, ou pa’p jwenn yon plas sou cha a daprè anpil fanm ki antre patisipe nan konkou pou genyen yon plas.

Fantom Barikad Crew pran nan Kouran sou cha-a. Yon kab elektrik touche’l epi elektrokite’l. Men li sove! Dram sa-a, trajedi sa-a te rive sou cha gwoup mizikal ki rele Barikad Crew sou bò Channmas pandan dezyèm jou Kanaval nasyonal 2015 lan. Chantè gwoup Barikad Crew a ki rele ‘Fantom’ te frape yon kab kouran electric ki gen tansyon mwayèn. Anpil moun ap pale sou otè kab elektrik yo pa rapò ak otè cha yo nan epòk kanaval pou detèmine ki kote cha yo dwe pase. Aprè aksidan an te fin rive le 17 fevriye 2015, Premye Minis Evans Paul deklare yon peryòd dèy nasyonal, kòmanse Mèkredi rive jouk Samdi 21 Fevriye 2015. Samdi se te jou funeray nasyonal pou moun ki te mouri yo. Yon vèy ap òganize nan memwa moun sa yo ki te viktim trajedi sa a. Se vre s’ak te rive a se te yon aksidan. Men, èske se pa yon aksidan ke responsab kavanal yo ak otorite yo pa’t ka evite?

Trajedi sa-a rive aprè cha gwoup Barikad Crew a ki t’ap pote fanatik ak manm group yo te pase anba yon fil elektrik ki te ba anpil. Si ou gade otè cha yo pandan dènye ane yo, se tankou cha yo nan konkou pou wè kilès k’ap pi gwo epi pi wo. Chak ane, ou ka wè, yon seri cha byen wo. Bann nan te fèk fin pase devan Prezidan Michel Martelly ki t’ap gade gwo manman fèt ak selebrasyon sa yo. Yo di bann nan te sou wout estad foutbòl la. Li te rive tou prè otèl plaza lè fil elektrik kòmanse atake, elektrokite fanatik yo. Menm lè sa-a tou, deblozay pete. Moun t’ap kouri toupatou sou moun. Fanatik panike. Yo menm rive pyetine s’ak te tonbe yo. Se te reyèlman yon trajedi pou kraze moun anba pye bò Channmas.

Men kisa moun ap di sou yon bon 3 jou kanaval an Ayiti

Description

In this episode, you will learn about the construction of exclamatory sentences. You will learn about sentences that express strong feelings in Creole. They use an exclamation. In the previous episode (episode #1), you learned about sentences that make a statement, express a command or ask a question.

For example: Ala bon sa bon pou aprann yon lang tankou Kreyol! - How good it is to learn a language such as Haitian Creole!

Other Examples: Ala bon Bondye bon! - How good God is!; Ala gran Bondye gran! - How great God is!

Finally, you will end this episode with a text that you can listen to. The text is titled, "Mayor Midi's Car (Truck) - Machin Majistra Midi a"

It is a funny story about how his driver and mechanic cared for his truck and how one day it ran out of gas and got stuck in a Thozin, Grand-Goave mud pit. Passersby had to help him push it out, not before they complained about how he had never given them a ride to Petit-Goave, Haiti. Nonetheless, they realized he was a good man who worked hard for the recognition of their city, a great representative of their town in the political affairs of the country.


This ebook was written with your needs in mind.  The episodes are designed to allow you to listen to real-life, Haiti-based dialogues about life's issues.  You will be placed in local situations where you will have to find the right words to express your thoughts.
