The official language
of Porto Santo is Portuguese. Many people (and all waiters and hotel staff)
speak some English. However, since the recent arrival of some large swash new hotels and an impressive golf-course the population of the island has not been sufficient for all the new jobs created. Many of the staff on the island are itinerant workers form the main island of Madeira and they are usually adept at speaking English very well, along with smatterings of French and German.
