LEARN PATOIS

Guernésiais, also known as Dgèrnésiais, Guernsey French, and Guernsey Norman French, is the language of Guernsey. It is sometimes known on the island simply as "patois". 

The 2001 census showed only 2% of islanders spoke the language fluently, with 70% of those being over 64. However attempts are being made to preserve and extend the language and we'd like to do our bit by giving you a few words to learn yourself!
