Jamaican Greetings


In Jamaica, as with any other country, knowing how to greet someone is very important. In this lesson, I’ll introduce you to the different ways of greeting people like a Jamaican. The type of greetings used may vary with age or social status. But unless I’ve indicated otherwise, those listed below can be used in almost any situation.

However, greeting a Jamaican in Jamaican Patois will usually make your conversation a lot smoother.
