I know its very difficult to wait while the process is going on but if you have worked hard and believe in yourself then you will definitely get it one day. This forum is like a family for us and my brother still hope
always encouraged me, helped me in difficult situations, always helped in clearing my doubts....so a big thank for you brother.....i would also like to thank all of you for helping me in this process....well lets get going and come to the main point.
i had interview today at Paris BIQ so me and my wife took a train for paris . the BIQ is almost 45 mins from our home....we just live outside of paris. I am Indian citizen and my wife is French(of Indian origin).we reached biq at 8:45 am whereas our interview was scheduled for 9 am.....
the security guard opened the main door and there was another person who came for the interview. It was morning so there were only 2 csq applicants at that time who came for interview.
:-*Then the lady on the reception asked for our passports to check if we have interview or not. everything went nicely. She told us to take a seat. it was exactly 9:05 am when a lady(
) called my name. she was immigration officer in her early 50s. she looked very happy and took us to a room. I must say i was bit nervous
but she was very very very nice lady. She holded the door for us and offered us a chair. I thanked her in French and then she gave her introduction and said to me....”do you speak French” then I said in French...yes I speak little bit French and then she replied no problem. Then we gave our introduction( I gave my intro in French) and my wife gave her intro in french. The immigration officer then started checking our documents and started with our passports. She started asking for my masters degree certificates(as I am Prin Applicant). She was typing on the computer at the same time....but in whole process till now...she was very friendly. Then she started asking me in French why I selected quebec ? I told her that there are lots of opportunities in quebec in my field of study( statistics, and I got priority treatment but still it took 7 months to get my interview). And my wifes studies are also in great demand( she is accountant)....she was listening and working on the computer at the same time. After that she asked me about my work. I showed her my exp certificate and last 6 months pay slips.....she was very happy and friendly. After this she told me that I can speak in French or English( as I want). Then I showed her my DELF A1 ( more than 16 in speaking and listening) and DELF A2( 17 in listening but 12 in speaking). She said that's quite nice to see you are improved and passed . but at the same time I would like to suggest everyone that keep learning French and pass as many French exams as you can while waiting for your interviews. It gives you confidence as well...if you can start the interview with French then the immigration officer itself says you can use English or French. Another thing is the questions immigration officer asks in French are very easy....like general introduction ,what is your DOB, what year you completed your degree, where do you work, what is your age....and I think 99% of interviews start with this information . So it's a better chance to grab some points in the start of interview. She asked me why you want to go to montreal, what are the jobs available in your and your wifes field of study. As suggested by still hope I researched a lot and made a complete project on quebec, jobs of our occupation. After this I showed her my assignment that I have searched these jobs in these sectors like aerospace( I had printouts of these jobs on my project).she was well impressed as she knows that at least we know about the job market( here I would like to motivate all of you to make a project in which u cover things like ,jobs acc to your field of study , experience, regions of quebec, etc). then she asked me about cities in quebec and I said that quebec is divide into 20 regions and I named three cities....laval, montreal and quebec city.I showed her that I researched and showed her all the regions on my project file. I searched it all on the Québec immigration site and not anywhere else. She then started the same questions to my wife but their conversation was totally in French and I was feeling bit relaxed at that moment. My wife speaks French fluently so they both were talking in French. She checked same documents of her study. At last the lady congratulated us with a smile and printed our CSQ. Then she explained about the next process. But here I would like to say that the Immigration officers are very nice.....in whole interview the lady( immi officer) was very friendly. At last we thanked her. I crammed one line from my wife in French....je voudrais vous remercier de nous avons donner cette opportunite....it means I would like to thank you for giving us this opportunity. She thanked us and said welcome to quebec. The whole interview took 45 mins. And I spoke 30% French( no matter how it was but I spoke. She had already made our points and It was 73. But I would like to advice everyone to learn French as lady was talking in French all the time ( but where I felt struck in french I used English no matter good or bad French, I spoke).
I hope this information is sufficient and again I wish all of you best of luck in the process.
