Americans and Canadians: 9 main differences through the eyes of a foreigner
Canadians almost never use slang. A foreigner will understand a Canadian more easily because his vocabulary will not contain words like: a danish (all pastries, not just cupcakes) or imma(flawless, from immaculate). In the United States, residents of different states sometimes experience difficulties in understanding each other: there is enough near-criminal slang and words that are used only within a particular city or diaspora.
Canadians are always correct in relation to the interlocutor and rarely start an argument. They often say “I'm sorry” and “I'm sorry”, although it's not always their fault. Rather, it is a way to get your point across to your opponent without hurting his feelings. How is our wedding different from the American one?
5. Social distancing
Most Americans are easy to get in touch with. They are sociable, can talk for a long time about the house or hobbies. From the interlocutor, they require the same involvement in the communication process. Canadians in this sense are introverts. They build trust gradually. Perhaps this openness of Americans is due to the fact that they often move, so adapting to a new place and making friends is a required social skill for survival.
6. Sports and politics
If you want to find out who is in front of you: an American or a Canadian, ask about your favorite sport. If a hockey fan is a Canadian, a football fan (American, of course, not this soccer of yours) is an American.
The people of the United States are involved in politics. They know the names of the senators, seriously discuss the differences between the programs of Republicans and Democrats. Canadians are more relaxed. The political situation in the country is one of the latest topics for discussion. /5b/oy/5boyibvnsq04c0okckc40ck4w.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
