Parlez-vous Ivoirien?

Some tips on how to speak Ivorian French:
1. As was custom in Cameroon, when you want to emphasize a word, you say it twice.
Example: ‘Ce piment là; il est long long et jaune jaune?’
2. ‘Le, la, un, une’ are useless words, and we can express ourselves without these.
Example: ‘On va changer porte là.’
3. Place the word 'there' (‘là’) after every noun (see previous examples).
