Canadian English. Quirky, eh?
THIS PODCAST takes listeners on a romp across Canada exploring the many facets of our culture that make us unique and the intricacies of our language that can make them crazy! Canadian English: Quirky, eh? We take a tongue-in-cheek look at making small talk, recognizing signature foods, and navigating head-scratching grammar rules and colloquial expressions. We zero in on Canadian personalities, home-grown music, cultural traditions and generally try to help separate the facts from the fiction.
We all know that English is a challenging language to master. Our goal with this podcast series is to share some of the words, expressions and idiosyncrasies we have encountered while learning or teaching ESL. “Idiosyncrasy” is a big word that also means habits or quirks.
