That's cause most of you American born Haitian descendants won't learn French. Sad but true. Don't have a single cousin that speaks it. I understand that creole is easier but parents should insist on it.

are you saying french or Haitian? because most of the Haitian's I know don't actually speak french its only if they are educated in French like from upper class..

It's not an upper class thing--if they are formally educated in Haiti they speak French.

I'm surprised it's not Vietnamese in Louisiana. I also wonder how it's French and not some patois/Creole.

I believe it! I went with a friend to look at houses with her and all of the land lords were Vietnamese. We joked about how they are taking over the housing market as landlords

I was speaking of American born Haitian descendants, born and raised in the States. They speak creole at home with their parents but not French, so they don't learn it. One could say that the parents won't teach it but it's also that the American kids have no interest in learning it in the first place (I see this with my cousins). It's a very American thing (we're the best, blah, blah, blah) and the kids feeling they don't need it to fit in. That's the downside of living in America and it's sad because you don't see Hispanics doing this with Spanish.

Haitians born and raised in Europe and Canada will speak French, even if they don't live in a francophone country. Since I'm Canadian and live in French Canada, we speak French at home and in society.
As for Haitians living in Haiti, it's like Epitome said. If they are formally educated (middle class and upper class), they will speak French. The poorer ones will speak it as well but not properly or not at all because the emphasis in poor schools is placed on creole (which is a fairly recent phenomenon. Didn't use to be that way)

^they teach Kreyol in most schools in Haiti now..public and private

My parents tried to teach my little sisters French, they even went to a French congregation and those girls were simply awful.  I did not understand how that was even possible.  They sucked.

Yes they teach kreyol in most schools in Haiti but in the more formal/private schools, they will put just as much emphasis on French. Which is why the middle class and upper class will master both languages. Not so in the poor schools. They emphasize creole almost to the exclusion of French now, which is a huge mistake.

Whereas in America, economics don't matter. Haitian americans simply don't learn it, no matter what their level of education because it's not taught to them by the parents and they have no interest in it. The only way for kids to learn it is for parents to speak it at home as well as creole, or by taking it up in school as a second language. I just think it,s deplorable that most Haitian americans don't even speak French. It is an official language in their culture and they should speak it just like Hispanics speak Spanish and English.
