How to revive a 500-year-old dying language

A group of volunteers in Singapore are reviving Kristang, the language of the Portuguese Eurasians.

For hundreds of years the unique Kristang language thrived in the Malayan archipelago, but there are now just a handful of people who speak it.

A group of volunteers in Singapore called Kodrah Kristang hope to change that and revive the dying creole of Portuguese and Malay.
