I speak English (obv. otherwise why would I join an English forum). I also speak French and it's actually what I speak all day, everyday. Finally, I fully speak Spanish and it's actually my second language after French (or 1st depending on your point of view).
I can also understand some words in Portuguese since it's close to spanish, but I wouldn't be able to hold a conversation.

Languages I would love to learn are, Portuguese, to fully understand and because it sounds cute... also Italian and probably Japanese for something different.
Is Montreal more English or French? I remember when we went for our family vacation out east we got lost just outside of the city, and pulled over at a gas station to ask for directions. The girl didn't know any English.
Montreal is mostly French, but a lot of people actually speak English in Montreal. Mostly due to the immigration. It's harder to find people who can speak English outside the city.
I've heard that Montreal is more English than French now so I wasn't entirely sure.
Actually, to be sincerely honest, it's really like a roller coaster. English is taking over the city, so I wouldn't be surprised at all. Even though, French isn't lost (yet). It's 50/50. I remember reading an article that said something like 40 something% French and 39.something English which isn't really far behind. Then again, I need to check back my sources.

I don't think it's going to ever happen. Quebec would flop without the rest of the country.
hey

Ain't gonna happen anytime soon. From what I have heard, most people, mostly the young people, don't care that really much anymore. People who wanted Quebec to become its own country are those baby boomers from the 70s who still think we're in the 60's-70's. Yes, some of the younger citizens want Quebec to become its own country, but it's really a minority now.

Quebec could not financially sustain itself.
They also have the problem of all the indigenous natives in the north part of Quebec, it's not happening anytime soon.
The Bloc Quebecois only won 4 seats in the last federal election.

The only ''benefit'' they would get is imposing French to everyone.

It's only technically my first language. Spoke it before I learned English as a toddler or whatever. My main language has always been English. Just didn't use it for 6 years, which killed it.

I'm born with 2 native Languages: Polish and Dutch.
Polish because of the family I grew up with, and Dutch because of the country I grew up in.
Thanks to the fact The Netherlands favours Sub Titles over Dubs, I quickly picked up English at a young age.
Now I live in Japan, I also speak a great amount of Japanese.

Languages I can't speak myself, but I can understand include Czech, German, Afrikaans, and a bit of Bulgarian.
I also attempted learning Spanish, German and Chinese at some point, but I realised these Languages just aren't my passion.
