    I love how you apply the Kübler-Ross's grief model in this scenario :D:D:D In a sense, we all go through the grieving process as if the immigration scheme was dead every time a draw result was out.

    Oh, thanks for telling me that! I thought these are pretty daily usage of words that are welcomed in IELTS! And I am constantly trying to learn these so I can use them in IELTS! Like "fed up" "man up" "trashy" etc...

    Canada doesn't welcome me at the moment as my score is too low :( But I'm working at it! Thanks, mate!

    Oh, I thought that is welcomed by IELTS. (In speaking test I mean. In writing I understand it's not good as it doesn't look too academic.) Thanks for the clarification :)

    I see, thanks for the clarification. I always wish I can grab more "slang" to make my spoken English more colloquial...

    I think the high scores in 2016 might be due to limited invitation numbers. This year the invitation already increased quite a lot comparing to that of 2016. But fingers crossed that it would fall back down after a while.

    Yes, I agree to what you said. Speaking is just one sub-part of the whole test. I've never been living in an English speaking country, but just had experience working with some of those who did stay there for a number of years for their degree, and found that their spoken English was horrible...

    With your logic, try to think of it in a positive way: may be you should consider yourself to be in advantage since you have constant practice with daily usage. Wouldn't it be nice for you or your friends to take the test so that you can achieve a higher score comparing with others who are not...

    May I know what languages do you know besides French and English? Just want to see if knowing other languages may help in learning French in your case so I can better estimate my timeline if I pick up French.

    If your score is higher than 472, the tie-breaking rule does not apply to you, and yes you will get the ITA within 24 hours. Congrats :)

    I totally agree that Canada is quite transparent and straightforward. Just that even Canada is following the route of US and Australia in terms of immigration difficulty, that's what I meant in the post :) It's still not totally impossible to achieve, just that right before every round of...

    If this happens, many people will definitely have a Merry Christmas! However, after so many unpredictable disappointment, I highly doubt the possibility of such a big present from Santa Claus.

    I've known a few guys who invested so much to move to Australia. The game is even harder there, and they switch to look for their Plan B - Canada.
