Wondering how many of you living full time in Aruba speak Papiamento?
Can "things get done" without speaking it full time?
Or would Dutch be more useful?
Or perhaps the question I should be asking is "which language is useful for what"?
Here in Shanghai, without at least some Chinese you won't be able to take a cab or get a lightbulb fixed.
My mother tongue is Portuguese, seems like a lot of words in Papiamento are the same.
