Gordon the Average Canadian

Canada, true north strong and free. A beautiful country with many sights to see! In this blog we are going to read about a typical Canadian man named Gordon and the things that he normally does. It’s full of stereotypes which are obviously exaggerated and only written as a joke, so do not worry if you think some of the examples are strange or ridiculous! It is simply a caricature of the common Canadian.

Before we get into his story let’s take a look at some vocabulary that you will encounter in order to help you fill in the blanks of the text that will follow:

Pay attention to – To focus on something, usually important.
Be careful about – To make sure to avoid potential harm.
Double check – To look over something a second time to make sure it is accurate.
Hurry up – to do something quicker than you were before.
Watch out for – To be alert to something.
Check out – To take notice of something.
Calm down – To relax yourself, especially after something stressful.
