It seems that a lot of people do not realize that there are differences in the types of French that people in Quebec and France say. If you would listen to the type of French that people are saying, you will realize that there are some differences with the vowels that are being used.

In Quebec French, the vowels that already have the tendency to become nasal will become more emphasized. Another thing that you will notice is that a particular sound, “un,” is not being used in the type of French that you will hear from France. You will still hear this type of French when you listen to Quebec French.
