How does Quebec French work? I sat down with my friend Geneviève from Montréal, Canada and interviewed her en français to understand the history. We even talked about curse words (safe for work/children, since Quebec French uses religious words as curses)

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a mistake in the video suggesting that only Quebec speak French in Canada. But this forgets Nouveau Brunswick. Also, Parisians are NOT representative of the French in general.

All comments for this video will be pending. Please keep politics off the channel, and any hateful comments will not be approved.

Geneviève and I were speaking in French during her visit in Amsterdam (I'm Irish by the way), so I decided to sit down with her and talk with her about some differences and history behind Quebec French.

We both agreed that there are some major problems in speaking with French people (although this was only my experience in Paris; the rest of France were much nicer to me), and she shared some of her other thoughts on travelling in Europe.

I hope you enjoy the interview; it's been four years since I lived among Francophones, so hopefully my level of French hasn't gone down *too* much! It's with the help of Couchsurfing guests like Geneviève that I've maintained a workable level of French all these years
