"Bilingual Everything" Province of New Brunswick Local Custom Tip by PA2AKgirl
Province of New Brunswick Local Customs: 13 reviews and 18 photos
Coming into New Brunswick from Maine, you quickly notice not only the completely different symbols for roadside services (it took me awhile to figure out that a hand underneath a vase means handcrafted goods) and the lack of billboards along side the roads, every single sign is in both English and French. This is so smart and considerate:) Smart because after some time, you're going to start associating words and picking up the other language. I wish we did that here--I know it would be near impossible in some areas (they would need to make everything multilingual, not just bilingual), but we could at least use more Spanish on signs (official signs)--I'm glad that happens more often than it used to, but still...
Anyway, the point is, it's nice to see official road signs and directions in French and English.
