There are three official languages in Seychelles: Creole, English and French. Several Seychellois also speak fluent Italian or German. Creole is a language adapted from 17th Century French and, like many of the people, peppered with influences from Africa and Madagascar. It has provided a platform for a number of successful poets, authors and playwrights.
