The people of Pomeranian Voivodeship speak standard Polish. Kashubes speak Kashubian too. Due to its history, many inhabitants have at least cursory knowledge of German. As in the entirety of Poland, English knowledge is on the rise, particularly among the younger generations. The region sees a fair amount of tourist travel and thus many service-sector employees have a reasonable fluency in English.
