I think you meant the Caribbean not Oceania. Not surprising though. It was a French colony and there are French speakers in other parts of America. Here's a video about Haitian Creole: https://youtu.be/8IuQCyIdePE

Oceania is a new continent, I think it was just named. All the Pacific Islands (excluding Hawaii) and Australia make up Oceania. So, Polynesia and Australia are now Oceania. It's the same thing, just that we added Polynesia to Australia. Oh yeah, Malaysia is now part of Oceania.

But before, Oceania was over 10,000 islands, but excluded Australia. Then Oceania included Polynesia. And Micronesia.

Ugh, so confusing.

No, it's not new. It depends where you go to school and how it is taught. There could be 7 or 2 continents. Lol. Malaysia is not part of Oceania! It's Southeast Asia. It's not confusing. It's a perspectives.

Well, the definition of Oceania may be a bit confusing, but one thing is certain: Haiti is not in Oceania.
