Language?

As on the mainland, English is the official language, with Spanish being the second language of many, particular in St. Croix. Early Danish landowners rented their estates to English planters from Tortola and Barbados; and Great Britain occupied St. Thomas from 1807 to 1815, leading to the continued use of English. The Island Creole dialect is English with an overlay of Spanish, French, Danish and African syntax.
