Learn Patois with our new campaign, it aims to help culture fest attendees learn a phrase or two to use when in Negril. In this video, you’ll learn to say Farin. The term “patois” stems from Old French meaning local or regional dialect and originates from creole languages of West Africa.
“At Tmrw.Tday Culture Fest, we’re all about blending in with the locals.” – Tmrw.Tday
In this video, “Farin” translates to “foreigner” in English.
To use it in a sentence:
English: All you foreigners come down to Jamaica!
Patois: All are farin come down to Jamaica!
Looking for something you’ll use more often while in Negril?
English: All good!
Patois: Way Up!
