English creole language test

Okay boys and girls, today we are going to have a test! Not the pass or fail kind, and you don’t need your #2 pencils. This is a language test to see how well you can read.

Nicaraguan Creole English is a real language that, as you can see from the graphic below, has its own grammar and spelling. It is a form of Caribbean English, and if you can pronounce the creole words out loud, you will find yourself speaking with a pretty good accent!

So here is the test: try your best to translate one or more of the seven boxes. Write your answers in the comments and I will respond with a grade!

To get you started… the title says, “Water with filter…Good water for drink…every day”
And the girl says, “Follow the step them good for the use of the filter.”

 

This is a timed test…after a couple of weeks I am going to get bored and move on to the next thing..
