^^franco-canadians and french and franco-suiss guys don't speak the exact same language? O.o
We do understand each other.

But I'm not kidding though, sometimes we have no clue what canadian-french people are saying. And I'm not talking about "tabarnak" and stuff, we never say that but we know that's how they swear. I'm talking about "regular" sentences that we sometimes don't understand at all. Only orally though, written canadian-french is as readable as french-french.If you want an example of difference, some french people say "as-tu vu ?", others say "t'as vu ?" and canadian-french say "t'as-tu vu ?" (did you see?).Kind of the same difference as when some people say "c'est quelle heure ?" instead of "il est quelle heure ?" (what time is it?).
Je vais faire du shopping ce weekend car j'adore ça, mais les bus vont sûrement être pleins.
Je vais aller magasiner en fin de semaine parce que c'est le fun, mais les bus vont sûrement être full.
Mon tabarnak, ma t'en crisser un sa gueule, ostie de caliss.

for example, we use feet/inches and pounds when measuring our height and weight, while we use meters, kilometers and grams for objects. I even own a bathroom scale that only uses lbs.
The thing with French Canadians (especially in Quebec) and France is that we both use anglicisms but not the same as each others. For example:
