Mots et expressions françaises VS Mots et expressions québécoises

Oui j’adore le Québec et si vous ne comprenez pas tout dans le langage québécois voici une aide bien précieuse. Et vice-versa bien sûr pour les Québécois qui ne comprennent pas tous les mots et expressions françaises. En fait on a quand même beaucoup de points communs ça fait vraiment plaisir, les expressions françaises sont pas mal utilisées au Québec. Moi-même parfois ça m’arrive dans la vie de tous les jours d’utiliser des mots ou expressions québécoises.
Perso j’en connaissais quelques-unes des expressions mais j’ai découvert la plupart. Pour les mots j’en connaissais les 3/4 donc j’ai plutôt un bon vocabulaire québécois.
Merci au blog Youmakefashion, toujours de supers articles, Vlogs et vidéos 🙂 ! J’aimerais faire aussi un truc comme ça plus tard. On verra.
Vive la Francophonie et sa richesse !!!
