We all know the many English Proverbs, an expression with truth or meaning behind it. For example: If you play with fire you will get burned. or Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
Well there are also Kriol Praverbs, and we discuss them in Kriol Languge Class with Miss Alma. These Praverbs have provided some good insight into the Kriol culture, and our "Homestay family" is quite impressed that we know so many and understand what they mean.
So how about a few of our favorites! See if can guess what the expression means!
Wan wan okro ful baaskit.
Had ayz pikni goh da maakit too taimz.
Fon bring bon.
Play wit popi, popi lik yu mowt.
