What I like, what I don’t like and what I’m wondering about

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

Today, I will write something about my experiences here in Vancouver.

When I came over here, I thought that the English would sound quite similar to the one spoken in the USA. But quite soon I realised that Canadians speak more like the Brits and they also write words like in British English (e.g. Centre instead of Center or Harbour instead of Harbor). Being more like the Brits makes it easier to understand them.

The Canadians are very friendly persons. But honestly: How many Canadians do live in Vancouver? On the streets you see more Asians…Both the ‘Asians’ and the Canadians have one thing in common: they dress like temperatures would still be up in the twenties. The ‘Asians’ are very present in the food courts too. Every food court has Chinese, Thai or Vietnamese food to offer.

And what is negative here? Actually, there hasn’t been anything worth to note.  Okay, the weather could be better. But it’s November.
