Language Landscape in Aruba

Video Transcript

Never had a need for an interpreter in Aruba. It was difficult to find someone that didn't know English, or Spanish, or Dutch, or Papamiento, the local language. Most people there spoke four or five languages. So if I needed an interpreter, boy, I was really out there somewhere deep. I think largely everybody there I ever spoke with; their English was nearly flawless and almost accent-less.

In this video a U.S. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel explains his experience with language in Aruba.
