English is the official language in Trinidad and Tobago — well, Trinidadian English — but Trinidadians and Tobagonians also speak one of two Creoles (Trinidadian Creole or Tobagonian Creole), both of which have influences from a number of African languages. Trinidadian Creole also contains elements of French, French Creole, Spanish, Patois (a variety of Spanish and French) and Bhojpuri/Hindi. There also used to be a Spanish-based Creole, called “Coco Payol.” In the interest of building more connections with the South American mainland, Trinidad and Tobago have also been encouraging school students to study Spanish.
