Salut tout le monde. je suis américain et en 2008 je vais au québec avec mon amie. j'habite à new jersey et chaque été moi et ma famille allons à la plage de Wildwood et il y a des québécois en masse! Razz Je vais à wildwood depuis je suis né. J'ai beacoup de livres des expressions québécoises et des mots québécois, mais mon problème c'est que quand ils parlent.. ils ont éviddement un accent pas comme celui de France Wink. je sais qu'ils raccourcissent leurs mots et tout ça. (exemple: ils et il -> y | et -> pis | elle -> aa) Mais c'est pas tout qu'ils font.. je veux apprendre a prononcer le francais comme eux ... il y a un(e) québécois(e) qui peut m'expliquer comment parler en quebecois? Cool

I'm going to say this in English just so that I can explain it properly. I grew up in Quebec, but I'm anglo, so there's a lot I don't know. But my French teacher's from France and has a weird accent so there's some differences.

In Quebec:
-well, you've already got the "icitte" part down
-some people pronounce the "oi" sound liek the old way, "oé" (moé, Québecoés, etc.)
-when there's a vowel after a "d" or a "t", there's a slight slight "s" sound

I dunno, do a search for "joual".
