Quebec French - Wikipedia article

An exploration of the roots and realities of French spoken in Québec

Much has been said (and misunderstood) about the origins and current state of French in Canada, and specifically in Quebec. This Wikipedia article gives a good overview of the antecedents of our uniquely Canadian way of speaking French, and explores the differences between the regions, the perceptions of "québécois" as well as variations in formal and informal registers, distinctive features and phonological realities.

This article is useful for teachers of French as well as senior students wanting to deepen their understanding.
