Papiaments it is!

When you do an internship or work on Curaçao, you always come into contact with people who speak Dutch less well. Papiamentu is the most spoken language on Curaçao and it certainly doesn't hurt before you come here to learn a few words and sentences. 

The official language on Curaçao is Papiamentu, a mix of fully developed languages and slave dialects. On the island you can easily manage with Dutch (and also English and Spanish), but it is nice if you know a number of Papiamento words and sentences. Words with equal spelling get a different meaning by shifting the emphasis.

We have selected a number of words and sentences for you, which can be useful in daily life on Curaçao!
