Taught by Wynnie Lamour
Wynnie learned English as a second language and speaks English with a generic American English accent. She self indentifies as a language junkie and has fed her addiction to language with a degree in Linguistics and Spanish. As a Haitian-American living in Brooklyn, she enjoys doing things that demonstrate her bi-cultural nature -- from cooking traditional Haitian food like akra and bannann pize to enjoying a ballgame at Yankee stadium.
Wynnie currently teaches Haitian Creole at the Haitian Creole Language Institute of New York while craftfully dodging marriage and baby questions from her 86 year old grandmother.
