Quoting Degolasse

Or you could go to one of Canada's most interesting cities (my opinion of course), Montreal, and challenge yourself to learning a bit of French while you are there.

Montreal is fantastic, especially when it's snowing!

Quoting Degolasse

, or a summer on PEI (lots of seasonal work, and I may be biased, but Charlottetown is a wonderful place to be in summer).

I concur. I visited PEI for the first time last summer and I loved it. I wish I could have stayed longer, but we only stopped off for a couple of days on our way out to Fundy and Cape Breton. Beautiful part of the world.

Degolasse - you made some really good points. I am like you wrote, looking for a temporary job in Canada to experience the real Canada. Maybe I should look into some of the things you wrote down :)

When it comes to Montreal, do they also spek English there? I did study French in highschool, not that I remember much now, but it could be a great opportunity for me to learn some more again. And maybe the "smaller" places are more personal and charming then the bigger citys? I guess I dont have to limit myself as much as I planned from the beginning.

Thank you all for great responds!!! :)

Language issues in Quebec are...messy.

Montreal is where you will find the most English speakers. Elsewhere in the province it may be harder to find someone who speaks it, but it's by no means impossible.

I've never been to Toronto but Vancouver is my favorite city in North America.
