However, some of the older folk still speak Low German (''plattdeutsch'') and you will sometimes see signs and phrases in Low German especially where a historic feel is intended, as in ''Dat ole Huus'', the open-air farm museum in [[Wilsede]] on the Heath.

Children have to learn English in school, but outside the cities and large towns the locals may not have such a good grasp of it, so a phrase book is handy.
