Hans speaking Surinamés

Sranan—also known as Sranan Tongo, Surinaams, and Surinamés—is spoken by as many as 500,000 people, primarily in the South American nation of Suriname, where it serves as a lingua franca for the country's linguistically diverse population, and by the Suranimese diaspora abroad. An English-based Creole, Sranan is distantly related to languages such as Jamaican Patois, Gullah, Seminole Creole, and Bislama, however its vocabulary derives heavily from Dutch and Portuguese, as well as a variety of Central and West African languages. Though it is a primarily spoken language, Sranan has been used in literature since the 1800s, including an online presence today. Read more on Wikipedia: http://bit.ly/29mWgmQ.
