    Is it too early to make jokes about teaching them how to speak Canadian-English? :)

    (warning - off topic post)

    On formal applications, when it asks if I speak any other languages, I always put English, French, and Canadian.

    Just repeat after me: there's a mouse loose about the house... should sound like "there's a moose loose aboot the hoose". You'll need a pro-cess and a pro-ject to deal with the mouse too.

    Maybe in Newfoundland, or Scotland, but nowhere else.
    Mouse, house, louse all rhyme.
    Loose, goose, moose all rhyme.

    If you try your fake Scots accent speaking to Canadians, they'll think you're somewhat gear-loose. :rolleyes::biggrin:
