Published Aug 03, 2009According to the latest available data from Statistics Canada, roughly 31 percent of Canadians are able to speak French. That's about nine million Canadians who know how to say more than just "bonjour," "Comment t'appelles-tu?" or "un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq... dix." This week on Exclaim! TV, we were feeling a little self-conscious that our proficiency in our country's other official language wasn't exactly up to par, so we caught up with some bands featured at this year's Festival d'ete de Quebec and asked them to help us out. You've got to start somewhere, right?

We also have past videos, featuring bands from this year's Warped Tour, the hilarious Strung Out and Pour Habit, and the nice folks of the Rural Alberta Advantage. On top of that, there are even more videos, so peruse the archives and check them out.
