Having lived in Western Canada for many years before taking my first trip to Quebec, I was really interested to see how my lack of French would work.
I do speak a little French, the Parisian French I learnt at school, but I do speak it very badly, and with a Welsh accent! I experimented with my French and also pretended not to speak it at all. In every case, everyone was very accommodating and either switched to really good English or just muddled through with good humour. I had a great time there.


Everyone has an accent, Yes, even you! ">

Thanks for the answers. My French is non existent as I took Spanish in High School and College. If I go it will be in either August or Sept.


Vacancies will be better after August 15th when the kids go back to school.

Wow.......... kids start back that early in Quebec. In the southern USA that is when school starts for some but in the northern USA many do not start until early Sept. Thanks for the information.
