Cultural Differences France/Quebec

Alexandre Lefils

Quebec

Quebec had a blend of both old Europe and the U.S.A. The mix between the old neighborhoods and the modern high-rises make for a very odd yet interesting experience.

Similarities to the Mainland

Because of Quebec's French heritage, the people of Quebec were introduced the metric system, like any other french speaking country in the world. This means that the freezing point of water is 0°C, and its boiling point is 100°C. This would also mean that length would be measured by meters and kilometers.

How does/doesn't Quebec relate to mainland France?



Though Quebec is located in North America they still connect to their french origins and cultures and have parts of them deriving from Latin origin which leaves them to think as do the French from France. The culture has derived from what it once was and now incorporates the "American dream" in much of its culture.

What is the difference in temperature between France and Quebec?

Quebec City-The average temperatures in the summer are usually around 18*C and the average temperatures in winter are of about -11*C.


Paris- The average temperatures in the summer are around 18*C and the average temperatures in winter are of about 5*C



This means that France has a milder climate yet has a similar climate to Quebec.
