Is this a case of linguistic and/or cultural insecurity? The students interviewed showed that bilingual assimilation pressures are part of a double minority situation where, on the one hand, linguistic norms are reflected by the use of Quebec French as the standard language and, on the other, anglomajority values represent the only cultural norm. This reality, caused by the linguistic and cultural isolation of these students, impacts their mental health and academic achievement.
