Jèrriais is a language in which Jersey people have exchanged poetry, stories, scandals, beliefs and business. It is a language of lullabies and laughs, satire and swearwords, and so much Jersey history is recorded only in Jèrriais. It is a living language and we look forward to passing it on to generations to come.
