Believe me St Marcouf I am a very old fashioned person and lived with my dear Gran and Grandpa who spoke patois so have been through it all,being told, many times if I had lived during the war I would have been pleased to eat that extra potato, to how they went to chapel in a horse and cart. Please do not call me a phillistine because I would be the first person to be able to go back to "old" Guernsey, but the world has changed, travel has got easier, youngsters travel to far off places that we would never have dreamed of going, so I cannot see the point in teaching patois. I am just being a realist and do not think it at all beneficial to learn a language that is all but lost. I love listening to it spoken, but I would rather hear my grandson speak French or German even rather than some archaic language that he would only use on Euchre nights.
