 As many people know, there are two official languages in Canada.

Quebec French
As we said earlier, French is one of the two official languages in Canada; about 95% Canadian people speak French as the first or second language. Most native French speakers live in Quebec and the language is called     Quebec French which is widely used in the government, media and of course in education. Schools in Quebec offer teaching both English and French language alike. Like with other regions where French is spoken, Quebec French has some differences with the French spoken in France; nevertheless it is still French and not a Creole dialect, so there could be some difficulties when a resident of Quebec has the first contact with foreign French due to stress and some local expressions.
