The Purpose of the Sa Lon Krio Website

Krio is one of those indigenous languages around the world, that are in grave danger of becoming extinct. Although it is the lingua franca of Sierra Leone, very few of its speakers know how to read and write it correctly. As such, it has been open to a lot of misuse and abuse in terms of writing and reading it. Therefore, in order to standardize the writing and spelling of the Krio spoken in Sierra Leone and the diaspora, Esme James and others decided to create a platform where the language can be taught in very simple lessons. That being the main purpose of Salon Krio, this website,, which is designed to be an authoritative source on the writing, spelling and use of the language, was created.
