Aloha Friday: Are you bilingual?

My Question:

I speak Patois (Jamaican - Caribbean island) and English and a little Spanish.

  23. I sound like an idiot if I speak Patois, even though I spoke it the first 9 years of my life.

    I often ask my kids to translate (even though they were born in Canada and do not speak Patois they understand) because I have forgotten some words and when my aunts speak...way over my head, don't really get it.

    I don't consider myself bilingual but I speak french and some Arabic. I don't know...maybe.

  24. No other languages here. I've never heard of Patois. Very interesting!

    Congrats on your awards, you have a great blog.

  25. None...I'm lucky enough to know English LOL :)

  26. Since we lived in Switzerland for 4 years in a small farming village - I speak German. The Swiss speak a dialect, Swiss German (it is not a written language for the most part), but we learned hoch Deutsch or high German.

  27. English and Spanish, plus bits of many other languages. I love listening to Patois!

  28. finally...
    All I speak is southern...
    LOL, just english... that is all for me... took spanish in high school, but do not remember it

  29. Patois is so hard to learn if you are new to is constantly changing as well
