    The schools start kids with Dutch then go on to Papiamento then to English.
    In a really short time span. I have a been amazed in how fast the little
    kids pick on all the languages!

    Yes young children can learn any language or just about anything when taught at a early age.My self,I have only 3 years of Spanish from high school to go on and my daughter is actually a Spanish teacher too.My daughter has told me that there are so many various dialects in Spanish it is incredible.I can only imagine how diverse papiamentu is.

    Yeah - wish they had igoogle translation for it.

    It's spoken by so few compared to other languages,
    i'm afraid that there might not be enough money in it.

    Here is a few "guesses"

    Mara = to tie, bind, fasten
    Bay = go
    Compronde= if it is mispelled from comprende = understand
    Door = through
    Cantina = bar
    Mengua = to fall off (or maybe deminished)
    Lamenta = to lament, mourn or rue
    Encuestion (think it is question, but not sure)
