Belize, a former British colony and a neighboring country to Guatemala and Mexico, is the only English-speaking country in Central America. About 300,000 of population with its diverse cultures and languages form the unique Belizean society.

Spanish, Creole (also referred as Kriol), and other regional languages are also spoken apart from English (official language). Therefore, bilingualism is a common situation for Belizean.

Islandmix has a forum thread that shows conversations in three major languages that are spoken in Belize – English, Spanish, and Kriol.
