My overall take on the topic is that people wherever you go are friendly
if you're learning their language - English or Spanish equally - this is
particularly true, for example, in Quebec, Canada, where French is preferred locally,
anglophones can find themselves excluded unless they're making a real effort to learn
and communicate in French...

In the opposed here in Mexico there're differences between the Canadian and the American, they are very different in the language, my brother have a couple of teacher one is American and the other ones is Canadian.

They speak very different although is the same language English, but they have some slang or idioms when they are expressing something or tell us something in the class room then this is like to the Mexican people or American we speak so Spanish and English we speak of a form very different.

The Mexican never will speak likes to a Native or vice versa the American never will speak with fluency the Spanish although the person speak correctly and grammatically the language.

That's my own point and it's not solely an far idea about it.

Sincerely yours.

There are very few differences between a Canadian and a Western US accent (much less than say Mexican and Peninsular Spanish. The intonation is the same, and except for a few features the phonology is the same. There are a few tiny differences in vocabulary.) The Western US accent is much closer to a Canadian accent, than say a Midwestern, Southern, or East Coast, particularily the latter two.

The nicest place: Barcelona

I was 16 when I went outside of Sweden to visit Barcelona with my class. It was great and friendly people. At the time, I knew almost no spanish at all. I was walking near la Sagrada familia when old señor came up to me and started to talk to me i spanish. I had no idea what he said, so I just nodded and said "Sí, sí, sí!". Lol. Very friendly people. That would never happen to me in Sweden.
Maybe it was that trip that slowly sparked my interest to learn spanish.

El sitio más antipatica... No sé. No he viajado tanto y, afortunadamente, solo he encontrado gente simpática.

Más simpática.
Los habitantes de la parte italiana del litoral jónico, desde Santa Maria di Leuca a Reggio Calabria. La parte griega no la conozco pero no veo el motivo porqué no puedan ser también simpáticos en aquella zona: son parientes-

London is the only place where some people refused to answer me when I was asking them for an address.

On the contrary, when I opened a map in Dublin, sometimes there was somebody coming and asking the usual 'can I help you?'

I and all my acquaintances who's been to Australia agree that 'aussies' are great. By the way, I was in Sydney, that is a huge city.
