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.

Here are the answers to our Canada quiz from the last edition of Canadian,eh?

1. 10 provinces
2. 3 territories
3. True (although some people now argue that it is the largest landmass)
4. Prime Minister (currently Paul Martin)
5. 6 times zones
6. a warm hat usually worn in winter
7. July 1st, 1867
8. the Native word "kanata" which means village
