Talking Canadian is not so much a history lesson as an often-amusing look at our accent, intonation and vocabulary - how Canadians speak today, and how we will talk in the future. The program takes a light-hearted look at how we differ from the British and the Americans, and how something uniquely Canadian has emerged from that historical mix. It will also look at how our language is changing, how like-speaking and uptalk are becoming standard among young Canadians at the same time they're being adopted by English-speaking teenagers around the world.

A very interesting look at how Canadian English developed, has changed, and has resisted change over the years. Suitable for use in classrooms, the students love watching it.
