Their language, Pennsylvania Dutch, is used at home and in church. Pennsylvania Dutch is a derivative of German. Some Amish children attend Amish-only schools, while others attend public schools. They tend to be highly community and family oriented. The majority of the Amish live in western Pennsylvania, middle Ohio, and middle Indiana.
