Cultural tips QUEBEC IS A 'FRENCH SPEAKING CITY' but many speak some English especially in shops and restaurants etc. All signs are in FRENCH. Inside stores etc, you may see some in English but not outside. Greeting people we usually say 'BONJOUR' or 'BONSOIR' ( Good day or good evening ) and when we leave we say 'AU REVOIR or SALUT', 'MERCI' for thank you.
Please make an effort to speak French. I always hold to the fact that I recieve better reception when I try to say a few words in the mother toungue of the place that I am visiting. A tip for service is always expected and welcomed. I always was polite and I was treated politely in return.
A simple 'Bon Jour' or 'Merci' will always get you preferential treatment (even if you don't know French) Showing respect that you are in another culture will always win you points.
Don't worry too much about learning French before visiting Quebec. It will be helpful to have a translation cheat sheet on hand to read signs, but most employees in Old Quebec are bilingual.
