Non-French Speaking Tourist In QC

by Benissimo

I'm a Cali and I don't speak the French language. Will that be a problem in QC?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers

Hi there! English is still well-spoken a lot in Quebec. In French, Anglais est encore "well-spoken" beaucoup au Québec. The only time I had to converse in French was when a couple (tourists) from Paris, France asked me for directions and my French is not even that good...they thought I lived there.

So, I don't really think you will have a problem...Just remember the simple formal responses like Merci (thank you) and Bon jour (goodmorning), etcetera....Have fun! Jumpingnorman :)

Not at all. English is widely spoken.
Bon Voyage!

In Montreal and Quebec City you should have no problem at all. However if you venture out into the smaller towns and villages you would find that most residents speak French and that many do not and will not speak English. French is their language English is the second language.

Hi We only speak English and had no problems when we travelled through the French speaking cities of Canada in June 2007. They all speak good English.

You will enjoy Quebec city,

Good Luck,
Mike

I of course second all the posts above in telling you that you will have no problem.

If you want suggestions about hotels where the owners speak English, let me know.

Enjoy your time in beautiful QC

Take a good phrase book with you. You could end up in places where there is some difficulty. Occassionally, you can run into someone who will be a bit ssnobbish about speaking English, but it's rare. If it happens, walk out and go next door. It is the exception. As noted, there are regions where you will have difficulty finding someone, but my personal experience in the rural parts of Quebec is (1) smile, lots (2) have patience (3) use the phrase book. It doesn't seem to matter how badly you speak the language, a little effort on your part, lots of hand signs, and a spirit of adventure will get you anything you need. Our cab driver in Quebec City didn't speak English. Montreal is quite cosmopolitan, so very unlikely you'll have a problem there. Quebec City can be a little more challenging. And as noted above...DO remember S'il vous plait (please) Merci (thanks) d'Accord (OK) and Excusez-moi (excuse me)

Montreal and Quebec City have many people who speak English. That being said, if you try a few words in French like "merci" and "S'il vous plait" - your efforts will be much appreciated. I speak some French and even when someone responds in English I frequently respond in French. It's much appreciated and really part of the experience!

All in all, you should be fine in English. Have fun!

Travel Tips for Quebec

Le Fin du Mode

by chodearm

How can you not want to suck down a beer that is both called THE END OF THE WORLD and produced by a company named UNIBRAU. A UNI-BROW in the states is when there is no seperation between someones eye-brows. Think of Bert from Sesame street, looks like a caterpillar settled at the bridge of ones nose. The beer though, is reminiscent of Germany's best wheat beers. Littered throughout Quebecs drinking grounds, these are an easy find that will make even the not-so-frequent drinker even happy. I had one sitting Tarmac-side just before leaving, using my last CAN dollars.

Diplomacy and Democracy

by johngayton

France and Britain have had a "Love-Hate" realtionship for the whole of modern history. They've fought against each other, sided with each other: antagonists, protagonists and the whole plethora of international relationships.

Here in Quebec City, 4000 (ish) miles from either Paris or London, that historical relationship has been mirrored. Jaques Cartier instigated the idea of "Nouvelle France" in North America, Samuel de Champlain chose Quebec as the ideal capital and with 28 men (no women) established the first permanent French colony in 1608.

Canyon Sainte Anne

by GUYON

See the canyon sainte Anne - CP 104, 206 route 138 Est , Beaupré (Qc) GOA 1EO - (418) 827.4057 - Fax : (418) 827.2492. Price : 7$CND For French people : the Canyon Ste Anne looks like 'les Gorges du Fier' near Annecy, but smaller.

French Food and Drink # 13 - Maple Butter

by jamiesno

Here is a real treat that I bought some of to bring home.

In the picture you can see maple butter from Chez Marie a traditional baker shop in Chateau Richer.

It is great on freshly made bread as you can see in this picture.

I really enjoyed yet another maple product.

Parc nautique de Cap-Rouge

by Scotsgal

The Nautical Park offers you the possibility to discover all the water pleasures of the bay and the river. You have access to sailboats, catamarans, pedalboats, canoes, kayaks and rowboats. Bring a water suit or some kind of bathing costume because when kayaking you can get soaked...
