I’m a little nervous – okay, I guess I’ll just come out and admid I’m flat out scared – about the prospect of going somewhere where the people don’t speak ENGLISH. It’s not that I’m some sort of English/American purist or something, it’s just that I don’t speak French AT ALL. Now, I’ve been told by several people so far that I’ll be fine – Canada is a bi-lingual country, after all… but this is Quebec, the heart of the ‘French is better than English’ crowd. So we’ll see how well I get along. I’m just going to make sure I memorize the French for: “Pardon me, do you speak English?” and “Sorry, I don’t speak French.”
I’ll audioblog about it from the road if I can. Until then – have fun!
