About This Quiz

Bonjour, mes amis! Or should we say, hello our friends? In Canada, it doesn't matter which one you use! Both French and English are official languages in the country, but not everyone is able to speak both of them. However, if you're bilingual, then you likely have a language that you prefer using. Let's see if we can guess which language you prefer to speak!

Maybe English is the language that rolls off the tongue perfectly for you. It could just be your first language, or maybe it's just the one that you have more of a vocabulary in. Or maybe French is the language that comes most naturally to you. However, it is always good to understand and be able to speak a bit of both in times of need! N'est-ce pas?

Some areas in Canada are filled with people who speak more of one language, but that doesn't mean that you do! It doesn't matter if you grew up in Quebec - French may not be your preferred language to speak. So, whether or not English or French is your first language, there's always one that you'll be using more than the other. Let's see if we can figure out which language that is with this quiz!
