    RE: IELTS test

    September 23, 2007 Hi, Just a short message for native English speakers who are worried about doing an IELTS test that it is not so bad. I received my IELTS test result today (Listening 8.5, Reading 8.0, Writing 9.0, Speaking 9.0; Overall Band Score 8.5). I think if you get the practice materials, and do a few of them in the week or two leading up to the test, you will be fine. Kind Regards, Gary

    I've borrowed a IELTS book off a foriegn work colleague for OH and yesterday he looked through it and said he was C**P at this type of thing. This is from someone who has completed a Uni degree. The problem is that foreign students are taught old fashion english grammar and we're not so I don't think it will be so easy. Told OH to give it a go and can only try his best, mind you if it was me taking it we would def fail. Debs :arghh:

    Ielts Dilemma

  8. Hopefully of some use to those who are looking for some clarity on the English language test: Go Matilda - Your Gateway to Australia - News Best regards.
  9. Does my husband have to sit a test for the extra points? I am still very unclear. I went on to immi.gov.uk website Exemptions: Applicants who hold a passport from one of the countries listed below will not be required to sit the IELTS test to demonstrate that they meet the English language threshold: United Kingdom (UK) Canada New Zealand United States of America (USA) Republic of Ireland. Skills assessments and English A higher level of English is required for certain occupations where it forms part of the skills assessment. You can find out if your occupation requires a higher level of English by contacting the assessing authority for your nominated occupation. Contact details for assessing bodies are available at the end of the Skilled Occupation List. ?? My husband was born and bred in England, as was I and our families too. We all hold british passports too. He is 43 years old. We had our heart set on moving out to NSW and for my husband to set up his own roofing company and hopefully to employ workers too. Does he still get the 25 points therefore if he doesnt sit the test? Or what points does he get if he doesnt sit it when he is in the exempt bracket? Please help. I am really confused. My Husband is a Roofer and his trade has been recognised by the TRA a few months ago. Do the Australian Government never take into account or give people extra points who have worked hard, without ever going on the dole in this Country? But they want us to sit some test to prove we can speak english to do a manual job that they are short of in their country? Help please. Thanks alot.

    Misses needs IELTS test

    Just got informed that the misses needs to take an IELTS test. She is Swedish but has lived in the UK for 15 years and has worked in the UK for large UK companies which involved a high standard of spoken and written English. My agent thinks if we get evidence of this she will not have to sit the tests. So advice to the men is get yourself a nice English girl. It will be a shame if i have to leave the misses here..
