Our official language is English, though an English-based Vincentian dialect is also widely spoken. You may find it a little tricky to understand at first, but once attuned, you'll probably be speaking it as well as the rest of us!



The population of St. Vincent & The Grenadines is approximately 110,000 with around a quarter of us living in and around the capital, Kingstown. Our ethnic heritage is predominantly African.
