"One of the most intimidating..." Bilinguism Tip by james_sinton

Bilinguism, Montreal: 28 reviews and 11 photos

One of the most intimidating things about Montreal for most outsiders is the feeling that you'll need to know FRENCH. Well, guess what, you barely need to know any more French than you would in say, New York or San Francisco. Anywhere within the main part of the city, all services are provided in French and English. Of course, if you know any French at all, try to use it, it'll give the locals a feeling that you are trying to fit in.
