Hello. My name is Roshane but I prefer to be called Rosean. I reside in Jamaica, which is apart of the English speaking Caribbean. In Jamaica our dialect is "Patois" which according to Google is "the dialect of a particular region, especially one with low status in relation to the standard language of the country." A great majority of our population speak some patois or one who try to like myself but really suck at it. Haha! I'm 19 years old and I just completed my first year in university. I'd like to learn at least 3 languages by the age of 25 and have travelled to at least 10 countries.


Here's something that you'll find pretty interesting. Post something below that you'd like me to translate to patois or like many people say though it isn't accurate, "talk Jamaican". This should be pretty fun and I can't wait to see what you guys have to ask.

Hi Roshane!


It's good that you are still young and you want to learn different languages and travel to numerous countries. I hope you'll reach your dreams. In case you want to visit our country and you like to learn our language, feel free to ask us. There are many Filipinos here in the site and we are known for being accomodating and friendly. :) 


By the way, you may translate my comment above in your "Patois" dialect. Thanks!

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

I used to live in st.Croix in the virgin islands so I have listened to a lot of patois . I also write for a record label which features predominately Jamaican and Trinidadian artists but I have not seen it written down very much.
