CANADIAN, EH ?

One of the challenges of learning English is that the language changes depending on the English-speaking country in which you are in. Whether you are in Canada, the United States, England, Australia, or any of the many other countries in which English is the primary language, you will find the language changes. Not only are there distinctions in vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation, but there are also many cultural differences which affect how we use the language.

So, how much do you know about Canada? Here’s a little quiz you can try:
1. How many provinces does Canada have?
2. How many territories?
3. Canada is the second largest landmass in the world – True or False?
4. What is the leader of Canada called?
5. How many times zones are there in Canada?
6. What is a toque?
7. When did Canada become independent from Britian?
8. What did the name Canada come from?

See if you can find the answers to these questions before the next edition of Canadian, eh?
