Anonymous asks:sorry but could you explain the "ain" vs "en"?
canadian french has a different accent and intonation/pronounciation than European french sooo in Quebec, the ain/en sounds in words like ‘pain’ (bread) and putain (aha) are pronounced with a sort of nasal-y “ain” (which i cant do, to my shame)
someone from France would pronounce it with a more open(?) ‘ahn’ or ‘en’ sound
do i sound biased well neither is right or wrong or worse or better theyre just different
i hope this helps :)

Anonymous asks:I suspect that most Anglo-Canadians' understanding of Quebecois swearing comes entirely from watching Bon Cop, Bad Cop.
haveyou-metted asks:Wait, you speak Parisian French? How different is it from Quebecois French?
Hmm well the accent is completely different, sometimes i can hardly understand Quebecoise
one common misconception is that it (it refering to Parisian French) is “purer” or w/e which is just silly there is english vocabulary as well its just .. different. Where i stayed people called e-mails “un mail” because well, french simply doesnt have that same number of words as english, especially modern ones
and some french words mean different things like in school here we are taught “soulier” means shoes but in france thats an older word that means an especially fancy shoe, so you may get some funny looks
also very different swear words
i cant think of more specifics right now and feel like this is already kinda long but its certainly a different dialect
Edit: also to my shame i cant make some quebecoise sounds i cant do the “ain” just en sorry guys
Anonymous asks:you actually speak fluent parisian french? were did you learn?
I took french immersion from grade 1 all through high school and last year i spent three months in France.
It has certainly slipped since then but i consider myself (mostly) fluent, the French say i have an english accent, and anglophones say its parisian but i can certainly communicate.
The other mod speaks french as well, she grew up in Quebec.
