David Moscoso, a twenty-three-year-old paisa, as residents of Medellín, Colombia are often called, has lived in Montreal since November 2012. He left Colombia in search of opportunities to improve his English and he has already mastered the language, excelling on his exams. In addition, he’s now even communicating well in French.
"Montreal is a French-speaking city, so I’ve had to communicate in three languages since I arrived here: English, French and Spanish. I didn’t know any French back in Colombia but have learned a lot here. At least now I can understand and identify a lot of French words that are similar to Spanish,” says David.
