Professor Nick Andre and FIU alumna Nyya Toussaint have created the first Haitian Creole course for the language-learning platform, Duolingo. The platform, also accessible via app, includes a language proficiency assessment. Andre and Toussaint, sole Haitian Creole contributors, presented their work during the NRC LCTL technology-training seminar, that took place May 3-5, 2017, encouraging language instructors to use Duolingo in their classrooms. This Haitian Creole course was developed with the support of Toussaint’s US Department of Education FLAS Fellowship award. It will soon be available in all of Duolingo’s platforms free of charge.
