I am impressed by the effort you made at 60 to learn French. Being an expatriated in USA, I had to learn your US-English to survive and progress in my engineering position. I am now considered as an expert in my domain, and it happends that I present papers or tutorials in conferences. I might not have the best spelling and grammar, but I do my best. My concern was more about a poursuite being managed in English in Quebec. I don't beleive that the documents could not be at least bi-lingual. Just look at the forum. There is NO exchange between French speaking people !
