    What do You know about Canada?

    Absolutely NO Googling

    I always find it funny to hear what others think of Canada ... It's amazing to hear such stereotypical responses.
    Yes, We do live in Igloos!!! :D

    So ... What do You know about Canada?

    Well, let's see...

    It's night for 6 months of the year everywhere in Canada, right? Everyone travels by dog sled. (Gee, you must have to work hard up there, eh dog? :eek: ) But, perscription drugs are real cheap! Oh, and because Santa lives right near-by, you all have to be nicer than the rest of us year-round.

    :D

    I'm an immigrant up this way from the States, some 30-odd (and I do mean "odd" :cool: ) years now, born and raised ("bred and buttered") in New York City. I took 4 solid years of French in high school in NY, and found that it's almost totally useless and unintelligible up here due to the weird nature of what Canajuns call French.

    To give you an idea of how un-Parisian that language is here, there's a word "ènioué" which has exactly the same pronunciation and meaning as "anyway". :rolleyes:

    And while my h.s. French might have prepared me for asking the way to the train station, it was utterly useless for buying groceries. I still have to turn the can or package on the supermaket shelf around so I can see the English side, or at least a picture.

    Hello Atomic! :)
    I am Canadian too and I know many French Canadians who speak both good English and French. I have to agree with Mike that some say things like "anyway" and speak a sloppy French but not all the people speak like that. Some do it deliberately because they find it's cool and some just don't care.

    Anyway, c'est ça qui est ça! :D

    Je parle en anglais parce que je suis bilingue. Comme Uguel707 a dit dans son message, plusieurs canadien français parle aussi bin (ou presque) l'anglais que le français.

    En passant j'ai rien compris de ta première phrase. :p


    I dont feel like translating that! ;)
    But im sure that dog understand everything! :p
