Jamaican Creole, Sierra Leon Krio, Nigerian pidgin have similarities to the English Creole Gullah. The word 'be" is used in place of is. In Gullah spoken by a small group of black Americans they say "we" instead of us.

At least she still has her patwa unlike some Jamaicans in foreign country.
A class mate send this to me because I live in Europe but my dad is Jamaican and I lived in Jamaica until I was 5 ( I am still there every other holiday) and everytime I speak English in class it just starts a debat on how jamican accent is literally another language and that nobody understands a word I say. It just turned into a inside joke
But honestley I never realised that its such a diffrence to American accents I only hear it when I am back in Europe

Great video. I love Jamaican patwah and decided to learn it too last year. I watched several youtube videos but it was still quite difficult to understand what they said in their songs. I also searched Google and used translators. They helped abit, but it wasn't enough. I wanted to be able to speak the patwah myself with a good accent. I wanted to impress my Jamaican friends both on social media and the ones in my school. They always discussed and I hear nothing; but I was in love with the way they spoke.After some time, I came across an ebook on a site which was promising. It had a full dictionary of Jamaican - English words, spelling, pronunciation, tense and plural formation drills. Then it also had some notes on Jamaican culture, cuisine etc (definitely for people planning to visit). Very useful a book it was. Best of all, it was only $2. I paid using PayPal and downloaded the pdf. Though I still later on printed it out, as I don't enjoy reading from a screen.With only 2 months of use, my Jamaican friends were surprised. I understood them well, and we hardly even communicate using english again. Everyone is surprised with me.‎ I now listen to my favorite Jamaican artists songs with ease and I must admit; it's fun!You too can be a Foreign Jamaican. I will strongly recommend ‎that ebook to anybody wanting to learn Jamaican patois and more about Jamaican. Like I said, it's only $2! It's up to you. Do you want to keep on wasting time on the internet or do you want to speak patwah in no time‎?Buy your own copy now, here:‎ ‎https://marcobao.selz.com/item/learn-jamaican-full-book
