True, quebecers only use english word for auto mechanic.
At first it was confusing.
Now it's confusing when I talk about my project with French people.
Spark plug in french french is "bougie" (candle).

spark plug in French is bougie...
Of course, the Quebequois is not quite french

I love Quebequois.... La voiture is Le car..... which is (coincidentally) a terrible translation of an automobile.

I beg to differ sir.
In French the car is "la voiture", or "l'auto(mobile)", but I quebecer it's "le char" which means a tank (armored vehicule) in french.
As cars are usually bigger here, it kind of makes sense.

Actualy ''le char'' comes from carriages pulled by horses or bulls, cow or even mooses.
they used to call those boggies ''char''

when I lived in France, they taught Quebequois like it was a foreign language which it is

That said, it wouldn't surprise me to have been misled by the French.... when they're not busy surrendering; they do other bad things

oh yes, and denpo is being funny - I said it was la voiture or le car.... he said "la voiture or le char" In french the letter "h" doesn't exist as a sound.... so to say out loud what he typed would be le car... funny guy

Ok 1 the difference between french from France and Québecois is like american english spoken in Texas and north Carolina.

Québec language is called ''joual'' and if you go east provinces theres another dialect called ''chiac'' that is a mix of Acadians french and english.
Yeah the same Acadians that were deported in the 1750 when the brits kicked out the french speaking communities out.
The same who landed in New Orleans.
They were Acadians and the name became Cajuns later.

Now we say CHAR and we do pronounce the H in this one.

Hey sorry to highjack this thread LOL

Don't worry, OP's request have been fullfilled, the thread can be derailled.
And yes Michel, you are right, my apologies, I should say French from Quebec and French from France.
