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!
