Je parle Québécois - A web site with videos to understand Quebecer French

Here's the link.

The site presents one new video per week, an excerpt form some movie or TV show produced in Quebec followed by either transcript or quiz to help getting better at understanding it. The web site is completely in French because it is mainly targeted to French speakers outside Canada. The author presents him/herself as a non Canadian French speaker who moved to Quebec a few years back. They created this website on a volunteer basis, so it's completely free.

If you're interested in Canadian French and its culture, I've created a Duolingo discussion a while back with many resources for that purpose and I update it once in a while when I stumble on new interesting links, like this site which I've just added. Check it out!

Thanks so much! I will soon be marrying a Québecoise which is what kicked my french learning into a higher gear and I'm always on the lookout for more French Canadian specific resources. Your other thread should also be quite helpful.

Yes, this one is very useful as well. It's already in my compiled list in the discussion linked.

It's a fun site, but I don't understand what's particularly Quebecois about this one:

Rather than just a statement on French in general being difficult?

What is discussed is French, as it is applied anywhere where French is spoken. But it is made with Quebecer actors who speak with the Quebec accent.

That's what I thought, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something since I don't really detect much of an accent on them at all. (Though they have other clips with strong Quebec accents..)

On each video preview (the still image), there is a scale (out of 5) of how easy it is to understand (or how pronounced and thick the accent is) in the video, represented by deer antlers. If I'm not mistaken, this one had a full mark, meaning it's one of the easiest to understand.

Great! I am learning French to converse with French Canadians. I am practicing with friends from Montreal and I find they often correct French I've learned from duolingo. Thanks!
