Grenada Language

The official language spoken in Grenada is English. The use of English language is a result of the years of colonization under Britain. English was the language spoken by the masters of the sugar plantation in the early years. The language continued in the post-slavery days.

On the sugar plantation, there was the mix of African languages with the English language to create a new language called Creole language. Later, when the French inhabited the island, this creole language was infused with French language to create another language which is called Patois. There are still people on the island who speak and communicate in Patois. The Grenada Creole Society continues to work towards keeping the tradition of the Patois in Grenada.
