If every single Haitian could speak every single language in the world, it would have been great for Haiti.

But in Haiti we speak only French and creole.

We learn French from school's benches while creole "nou pale'l de pi nan vant manman nou".

Mr. Lavaud Hold Desmoulins, a.k.a. The C.R.J., is looking to have the French language removed from the Haitian Constitution.

But considering it as the second popular language spoken in Haiti.

Mr. Desmoulins also is encouraging the population to try to learn Spanish and English.

The Creole must be the sole official language in Haiti.
