Teach Yourself Haitian Creole

Writing Teach Yourself Haitian Creole has been an adventure for me. I first started giving private lessons to organizations and individuals, who wanted to find the best to way learn Haitian Creole; because their organizations or church activities were in the Haitian community.
They just came to me saying, "I want to learn Haitian Creole", After teaching Haitian Creole for several years, my students started asking me for the materials in a book format, and that is where this incredible adventure began.
It took me approximately 16 months to come up with an easy way to learn Haitian Creole for self-taught people. I had an incredible crew of Haitian brothers working hand in hand with me and we spent countless hours at the recording studio, creating the voices, editing and finalizing the MP3 Voice recording for all the sections in the book.
We were all very excited with the book and hoped for good results, because while there were many books out there, these methods were only to learn Basic Haitian Creole words and phrases. Students were not taught to actually speak Haitian Creole.
We finally finished the recording and the revision of the book, after several months of work, sometimes working until 2 am at the recording studio, but we made it.
The book was released first in the Dominican Republic and soon all our Haitian teachers started to use the book for their personal and private lessons. Christian and non-Christian organizations were looking for the book to train their staff.
These organizations started asking for an English version of the book, because most of their staff were English-speaking people, so we came up with the English version. It was not an easy process, but you can finally say that you have a good tool to learn Haitian Creole language, not just a few phrases or words; you can really learn how to speak Haitian Creole with this method.
