quebecois.

i saw this posted on facebook this morning,
and had to share.
this is what i try to understand everyday.


if you recognize the 'french from france' accent,
listen to how different this is.  
'mat-teahhn' instead of 'matin'
lots of 'c'est ça luh's
and even just the lilt of the conversation is different.

take a listen!
do you understand anything?

Ooooh yes, every day I have a comprenhension exercice.
I'm not sure if it's harder to understand english or quebecois...
