  1. Hey JH, it sure is a relief being on this side of the fence! 2 years ... wow, it feels like a different person wrote that, and in many respects that is the case! I've never been the most thorough student, and it also applied to my PTE preparation, it's a character flaw of mine I "knew" my English ability is excellent, therefore I didn't feel the need to do any studying in the strictest sense of the word. I read through the question types' explanation and did the mock tests twice, just so that I understand the question format and what I could expect to happen in the exam. I also re familiarised myself with the general "template" I'd use for the long form essay (Introduction / supporting and secondary point / elaboration / wind down / outtro & conclusion).
  2. The IT field Thread

    We can confirm, that there is a market, as there is IT here in Australia.
  3. Great! Happy it all worked out Yeeew, stoked to hear and happy my initial misery could help
  4. In England you tend to not hear how strong the various English / Scot / Welsh accents are, but there's a reason why a lot of English movies are subtitled in other English speaking countries
  5. How's his enunciation / where's he from in the UK? I ask that, because many English accent sound like the speak is "swallowing their words", for the lack of a better term. Maybe IELTS might be a better option for him, as the speaking is face to face?
  6. Cycling (all forms of it) , is a very sociable sport / activity. I can highly recommend doing exactly that. Go to your local bike shop and ask if they do regular shop rides. You don't need any top of the range bike to get your started and you'll find your social circle growing quickly.
  7. With your financial situation and health issues, I guess this is a bit of a redundant question … but, are you getting out on the MX bike at all? I’ve not had nearly the same run of bad luck as you, but I know what it is to feel lonely and empty, even though I had a girlfriend (who then became my wife) at the time. See, I was mortally unhappy in the UK, until I was able to find something that made me happy. In my case it was Downhill mountain bike riding / racing, and I made the best mates I could have asked for through it. Many of these mates also rode crossers… so I know the kind of people you meet in those circles. Find something that makes you happy, preferably a hobby shared with others … and the rest will fall into place
  8. Yeewww, congrats mate... only a pleasure
  9. The Sunny coast is a gem, hardly any places qualify as no go zones
  10. My wife would most likely like to meet up during the daytime with any other ladies on here. We're newish here in the Sunny coast (8 months). We live in Brightwater and kid goes to Brightwater school. Matthew Flinders is supposedly a great school @Jocelyn Scully , all the big bosses at work send their kids there

    Thanks It's an Aussie Metalcore Band from Byron bay - called Parkway Drive. They've made it big, but tend to stick to their roots, and like to tour smaller communities
  12. Back to the forum and more determined this time.

    Definitely not isolated even in the slightest 'round the Sunny coast for example (imo)

    Outdoorsy you say? Very small snippet of random shenans of my family and I. So much free stuff to do ... the above is only scratching the surface of what we've been up to ... kicking myself for not always having my GoPro on me.
