I'm jan from Virginia/US. You are doing so well, I thought I would give you a goodie. My grandparents on my mother's side were from Canada and I went to a French school in Lynn Massachusetts for 13 years, (I started in kindergarten.) My husband I went to Quebec for our 30th anniversary and I still could understand it. I left my verbs back in history, but I could understand and read the menus. I even watched The Simpsons and I laughed a lot. Homer in Canada doesn't do the "duh" quite right and Maggie doesn't do the sucking thing on her pacifier. I loved Canada and would love to go back.
