I'm visiting Montreal next weekend, and quite excited, as it'll be the first time I've ever been in a Francophone city. Is there anything I should see while I'm there? I realize this may be kind of broad, but for one, I don't have any interest in partying, nightlife, etc. but I enjoy history, ethnic neighborhoods, museums, nice parks, and so on.
What kind of foods are special to Montreal? I've heard of the bagels(which I definitely will try), but is there anything else? Any other food recommendations in general? I like trying foreign cuisine in particular when I go to big cities - is there any decent(i.e. authentic, non-Westernized) Chinese food in the Montreal Chinatown? I like all sorts of other food too, like Indian, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, etc. so I'd appreciate hearing about any particularly good(and affordable) restaurants.
Also, sorry if this is a stupid question, but do most Montrealers speak English, and if so, do they get annoyed when you speak to them in English?
