Learn Nigeria’s Pidgin English


I created this page for my readers that do not understand the Pidgin English used on the blog.

What is Pidgin English?
This is a diluted form of English language spoken in most part of West Africa; Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, Seiria Leone and others

It contains English mixed with local dialects

– How you dey?
How are you?

– Wetin You dey chop?
What are you eating?

– My name na Paul
My name is Paul

– I won chop o
I want to eat

– Shebi ?
Right ?

If there’s any word on the blog that’s foreign to you; place it in the comment box and I will translate it once seen.

Thanks for coming around.
