On this side of the Atlantic, the French accent (from France) is often imitated but is really nothing like that of Quebecers or of other French-speaking Canadians. On the flip side, the Quebec accent is also often imitated in the Old World although, in my opinion, it is inimitable.

Is it possible to lose our Quebec accent during prolonged stays abroad? According to the information I found on Solange’s, website, there is a very effective way to get it back!

I agree with you, Solange. After all, the important thing is to be “kessé qu’on est” regardless of our accent!

What do you think?
