I can speak Guernésiais and I am proud of it, I learnt it as a child from my Parents and Grandparents. I can also speak 'Good French' and I know that the fact that I knew and understood lé Guernésiais helped me no end to learn and speak French. I know some words are not the same in Guernésiais as they are in French but the tenses certainly do help. I am now teaching my grandchild of five and a half lé Guernésiais and he certainly enjoys it. I am also teaching him songs, some of which I have translated and others that I have made up in Guernésiais. I think young children benefit from learning it at a very young age, it WILL help later to learn French believe me.
