Kreglish was discovered when I stumbled upon the Kreyòl words “paske”, “prèske”, and “pito” and noticed they sound similar to Pass followed by the letter K, press & K, and P and toe respectively. That caught my attention; I kept searching and discovered the content of this video. And that’s how the #kreglish methodology was born, which led me to write the Haitian Creole book Creole Meets English where I developed a process that makes it easy for English speakers to learn Creole quickly.
