Papiamento step by step has been designed for beginners and aims to provide you with a solid foundation. The exercises were created so you can easily learn to understand spoken Papiamento and easily learn to speak the language.

The books contain five chapters that focus on everyday communication and the repetition chapter gives you a chance to review everything and see which lessons you have mastered and which lessons you need to practice further. The Course Book contains texts, grammar, writing exercises and dialogue exercises. The Theory Book contains pronunciation rules, grammar explanations, vocabularies and answer keys. The two books form a complete package with which you will be able to learn the beautiful language Papiamento.


This successful method was first written in 1993 by Mario Dijkhoff, linguist and expert in Papiamento. After gaining a lot of experience as a Papiamento Teacher, he wrote this study book specifically for adults.
