re: How English changed my life ! VIEW POST


I'm French Canadian. In north America, being a native French speaker means that you will need to learn English to do anything once you got out of the province.

I learned to read and write in English while playing video games when I was a kid. I played Runescape and every objects you hovered your mouse to would display the name in the top corner, so it helped broaden my grammar. Then I had the obligatory English classes. Then I continued to read books in English, play video games in English, watch movies and YouTube videos.

When I slowly started to get involved in the IT world, I understood quickly that English is essential. When I started my IT tech diploma and now my IT engineering diploma, it's a fact that rnish is the main language in IT.

I'm at a point now that I fluently understand English, my writting is good but not too complex. As for my speaking skills, since I still live in a French speaking city, I don't often have the opportunity to practice, but watching and listening to English material makes me quite a good speaker nonetheless.

I now prefer to watch movies and TV series in their original version and most of my books are in English.


Yes, video games and series, videos, ... are good ways to learn English, it helps a lot.

I thought all the cities in Canada were bilingual, you teach me something !

Thank's for sharing !


In Canada, it's the government that offers bilingual services. The majority speaks English and will never learn French. A minority speaks French.

Ah okay, so it's a myth 😂.

Thank's for the precision 😁.
