I have NOTHING against the french people but I dont understand why they would post on here in FRENCH. Isnt there a french board that they could use ??

    I like the fact that people post in French. While I don't speak French (although I'm studying it), it is part of the charm of Montreal. Many of the wonderful SPs I've met in Montreal are French ladies who only speak French. I don't consider this board an English review board but a Montreal review board. The blend of French and English is the essence of Montreal.

    My French is terrible but if there's a French post I need translated, someone will always gladly do it if I ask politely.

    This is a board that is open to everyone, French or English. If there is something you don't understand and would like to have a translation, you could always ask and I'm sure that someone will post one for you.

    The only thing I object to is when someone posts a question in English looking for information and someone posts an answer in French. It serves no purpose to reply in French when the original poster, in many cases from outside Quebec, does not understand the language.

    Other than that, Montreal, and this board, is like a French kiss...a mixing of two tongues.

    ok let me make this into a math equation for you.

    Montreal=City
    Quebec= Province
    National language in Quebec= French
    = alot of people might answer in french.

    Quebec= Province
    Canada = Country
    Canada= Billingual country ( French and English)
    = Learn both languages or get a dictionary.

    And yes it only bothers you.

    ROFLMAO

    Ben répond ZA ! (said in a thick Québécois accent )

    I don't think there is anything on the board guidelines that say "All posts must be in English." So I think you are going by wrong assumption.

    Hey man, when in rome ...

    I'm actually surprised (and grateful ) that the majority of posts here are in English.

    That would be like going to an American board and finding all the posts in Spanish!

    Technically, like Zone Alarm said, French is the official language. In spite of that, Montreal, I have found, is extremely accommodating to anglophones. I can only imagine what it must be like to be an non-anglophone and try to get around in English Canada or the US.

    I like the French threads ... they help me brush up on my pathetic French skills, even when I'm lazy

    J'espère que les gens vont continuer à écrire en français (I hope people will keep posting in French). I liked your equations, ZA!
    Personnaly I speak quite a few languages, and I try to reply in the language of the posts to which I am responding.
    Maybe we should have posted Paris' comeback in french only, we could have increased our chances to see her...
    Je ne vois aucune raison pour qu'un board montréalais soit unilingue anglophone. Actually I think you would some significant members if it were... some members who like to post in either language.

    Seriously...This post didn't even warrant a response.

    just for laughts

    As you know, workers within the province of Quebec should do business in french. So, SPs who are workers should ... in french. And agencies with more than 50 workers should have a french certification. LOL.

    Quite interesting.

    May be MERB bilingual issues is not so bad versus an English client trying to talk to an English SP in french.

    "je voudrais ta faire amour avec toi en chien, I mean doggy style" LOL

    Well, I was remembering some events when I saw an English SP last summer. LOL.

    This is, from my understanding, a Canadian board and French (I prefer to say, Quebecois) being an official language in Canada, why not?

    I am not, I should explain, Canadian.

    The majority of women you meet in Quebec, by the way, are not French. They are Canadian, specifically, Quebecoises.

    Talk to them about things going on in Paris and they typically don't know what you are talking about. And why should they?

    Nope, I'm not Québécois but Francophone

    There's a movement afoot to differentiate French Canadian from English Canadian by naming them respectively 'Canadien' and 'Canadian' in both languages.
    I like that notion a lot.
    All I can say is that I would not be visiting Montréal as often as I do if it weren't Francophone.

    It is, for the record, the second largest Francophone city in the world. There are more Francophones who live in Montréal than live in Lyon or Marseille.

    As to what the language is called, moi, je n'en sais rien. Its definitely not French as spoken in la France métropolitaine.
