We speak English - with a faint Jersey accent and as you explore you’ll see road signs in French, relics of our Norman past. Jersey has its own native language, Jerriais - an old Norman language with a sprinkling of Norse. Although you may not hear it spoken, it’s part of the island’s heritage - look closely and you’ll see traces of it around the island from map locations (Greve means beach) to street names.
