Details

Capeverdean (or Capeverdean Creole) is the mother tongue of the famous singer Cesária Évora and of more than a million people worldwide. This book, one of the first of its kind in English, provides you with a rare and comprehensive insight into the language and culture of Cape Verde. By following a series of lessons, which gradually increase in difficulty, you will be able to learn the basics of the Capeverdean as spoken on the island of Santiago (which is the most widely used), and also gain some useful knowledge about the varieties spoken on the other islands. Furthermore, this book comprises exercises with model answers, cultural information, grammar notes, vocabulary lists (Capeverdean-English and English-Capeverdean), 45 photographs, and four indexes. Collectively these will give you a thorough understanding of the language and culture of Cape Verde. Let’s Speak Capeverdean is aimed primarily at English speakers who want to learn this language, but it may also be useful to people from Cape Verde who already speak it but now live in an English-speaking country and who would like to be able to read and write it. The vocabulary lists and cultural information provide a good starting point for tourists visiting Cape Verde, as well as those who are simply curious about the language and culture but are not able to commit much time to studying them.
