Trinidadian French Creole is still spoken by an older population. The "Patois" or Trinidadian French Creole was once the language used for calypso, the music and cultural folklore.

In 1777, the Spanish persuaded some Europeans to move to Trinidad, and many French immigrnts arrived. French became more widely spoken than Spanish, until 1989 when England annexed the territory.
