Happy Papiamentu/o day!


Today is the day of Papiamentu/o! Depending from which Caribbean Island you come from, you write it with an -u or an -o at the end. In Aruba Papiamento became an official language of the island in 2003 (!) and only four years later in 2007 did Papiamentu became an official language of the Dutch Antilles. What do you actually know about the language? We asked teens if they know how to spell some common words and what words in Papiamentu they find important.
