Did you know…?
“How ya gittin’ on, b’ys?”
Everywhere you go in the world people speak English just a little bit differently. Everyone knows that British folks sound different than those born in Canada and the United States. But did you know how differently English is spoken in various regions of Canada? Did you know that there are quite a number of Canadians who were born here, but they have never had to learn English? Of course, I am sure you are aware of the same phenomena in your own or other countries in the world.
I grew up in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador; the Far East of Canada. You cannot get any closer to Europe on the continent than my home province. We have a very different way of speaking English. Click here to watch a short video of someone from my home province teaching a Canadian from Toronto some “Newfie” expressions. Every area of Canada has its own special words or phrases, so be prepared to learn something new in each part of Canada.
