BackReally? Where did you get the rest of your body?

Translation: « J’ai eu mon dos à UQAM. »

Why wrong: Bac, short for baccalauréat, is used in Québec for a higher education degree. In Bachelor MasterEnglish, the expression is bachelor’s (degree). The word degree is understood in context, and isn’t necessary to say. If you have a degree, make sure you use the right English expression:

Correct it: Say: “I got my bachelor’s at UQAM.” or “I got my degree at UQAM.”
