You aren’t able to read and write Haitian Creole, or you don’t want to learn to read and write Haitian Creole?
No one on this blessed earth ever learns to read and write their own language unconsciously. Either they have the good fortune to go to school to do this (if their school is taught in that language), or they take the initiative to do this themselves, finding a way to decipher the mechanics of that language after countless hours of practice. In the Haitian context, the majority of the small handful of people who attended school before the 1970s and 1980s never had a single class in Haitian Creole. Consequently, you’ll find that the vast majority of people of these generations have difficulty reading and writing Creole. However, those of these generations who would like to learn to read and write Creole should take the necessary steps to achieve this goal.
