Apparently, in advertising, as long as you speak English you can work wherever you like. In fact, we are being told the fastest developing ad nations are in other parts of the world, such as Dubai and Brazil. I would love to work closer to home, to be closer to my family, and am in fact looking at working in Montreal.
I love Montreal, and for those of you who haven’t yet visited, it is quite the treat. The culture is completely different than that of anywhere I have visited (which isn’t very much) or imagined would be. Amazing opportunities are to be had for creative people in Montreal. One thing I have found in visiting Quebec, is if you don’t speak or attempt to speak French, most of the time you won’t even get a response. If you are fairly fluent, as my father is, you may even feel your French is looking down upon the way that you speak it.
I would love to take French classes, et je suis pas complètement bilingue, mais je pense que je connais d’assez d’être pas classifié un ‘beginner’. Donc, je cherche un classe ou un cours ou j’peu suis étudier de la grammaire, et général ‘knowledge’ de langue. Or, for my English speaking friends (or for those who do speak French can ridicule my poor use of the language and get a sense of what I was attempting to say), so I’m looking for French classes, though not beginner because I don’t think I quite fit in the beginner category, where I can learn grammar and general French language.
I want to be able to say that I am bilingual, as I consider myself French-Canadian.
