The contribution presents the results of a research performed in 2013 in the Seychelles. The Seychelles government prioritizes English to the detriment of French, despite the fact that 95 % of the local population speak Seychellois Creole and consider themselves closer to French rather than to English. The usage of French is in decline. For the government, English represents the first language of the country, followed by Creole and by French. For the Seychellois population, it is the Creole that constitutes the first language, followed by English and by French. The Creole-English bilingualism is more frequent than the Creole-French bilingualism. Trilingualism is relatively rare. The Creole-French diglossia has been replaced by the Creole-English diglossia.
