People can be heard speaking Frisian throughout the province. Most Frisians speak Frisian – about 75%, and almost all of the province’s approximately 650,000 inhabitants can understand the language: about 95%. This means that you’ll come across Frisian everywhere in everyday life.

Half of all Frisians are able to read Frisian easily. However, a small proportion of Frisians have a good written command of their language. This number has steadily increased in recent years. This is due to education and the increasing use of social media in Frisian.
