Where is Haiti?

Map of Haiti World Map with Haiti highlighted in red


Haiti’s official languages are French and Haitian Creole, or Kreyòl. Kreyòl is the first languge of 95% of the population. It is a combination of French, Taíno, English, Spanish, and various African languages. French is used in government and business, and is traditionally taught in schools, but some schools are starting to use Kreyòl because it is the first language for most students.

English is also commonly spoken, because many Haitians have relatives in the US and American television and movies are popular in Haiti.
