Thanks for the compliments @fsw_hk. one thing I believe is that if you really want something, you go all out to get it. I am really thankful that I took that leap to learn french, I am enjoying it thoroughly and it has opened up a whole new world of opportunities for me. If it so happens that I get ITA when FSW draws resume, I will still continue learning it.LOL, you already got a degree in exchange for those $60,000. You and all the other CEC applicants should stop arguing that Canada or anyone else owes you something in return for the amount of money you have spent on your studies. You already got what you paid for, everything else is a bonus and not a right.
PS: That's not particularly directed at you, but going by this forum that is how most CEC candidates think. And a lot of FSW applicants as well. Just because we've spent a lot of money doesn't mean we deserve anything in return. That's not how this system works. It's called a "draw" for a reason.
Now there is someone who deserves her invitation. Young, smart and most importantly, determined, Canada would be lucky if every applicant were as gifted as you. Your post makes me wish that IRCC would require B2 in French in addition to the current requirements in English, just to weed out the lazy applicants. Even for CEC, you paid 100k for a Canadian degree, so what? Learn French from scratch to prove you really want to come to Canada and didn't just choose it because it's easier than immigrating to the US and has public healthcare
