Nou Ka Palé Patwa

by Caribbean Yard Campus in

Registration is now open for Nou Ka Palé Patwa, Caribbean Yard Campus’ course in the Patwa of Trinidad.

Caribbean identity reflects itself in our linguistic fertility. In sharing our languages, we reject mono-lingual domination and expand a community free of ‘barriers’ to self-recognition and our relatives in the region. ‘Nou Ka Pale Patwa’ introduces Trinidad Patwa as a conversational experience in the learning of Trinidad and other Caribbean Kwéyòl languages. Drawing on the heritage and practices of Kwéyòl cultures, this course includes a wide range of materials and activities, including games, stories, folk songs, calypsos and live conversations with elders of these communities. The course is accessible to persons wishing to learn Patwa, as well as those already familiar with the language. 

Classes are on Fridays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. between April 12 and June 28, 2024.
