Suriname: Wealthy or Not?

Suriname's Lingua Franca

Although Suriname is a country in the South America, its official language is Dutch because of the colonists from Netherlands; also, it is the only territory outside Europe where Dutch is spoken. It is used for education, business, government, and media. Not all the people who live in Suriname use this language, only 60% use it as a mother tongue. Some people use the Sranan, the creole language, which is widely used in the country depending on the formality of the setting. It emerged to fill the gap of semantics between European and African immigrants. Surinamese people can talk many different languages, and there is an ongoing debate on the country's identity because some people in Suriname want to change the national language into English because of conflicts.
