Learn The Lingo: 10 Slang Terms in Canada
It’s day three of your trip to Canada and you’ve already been asked if you packed your toque (pronounced toohk) and whether or not you have any loonies in your pocket. It’s enough to make a first-timer’s head spin, so perhaps you need to sit down and relax on the nearest chesterfield (whatever that might be).
Canada has two official languages – English and French – but perhaps a third should be designated as well: Canadian slang, that curious tangle of culturally specific idioms you need to be a resident to fully understand. But don’t worry: this story will help you navigate the nation’s thorny linguistic jungle as if you were born here.
