I don't see the big issue here really. If you have lived in an English (or French for that matter) country for a number of years, been taught a degree in that language and conversed with the general populace of that country in the language then you will have no problem.

If however you have lived in an English speaking country for 5 years and spoke nothing but Swedish because all your family and friends spoke just Swedish and you hardly communicated outside that group then you can't really claim to have been speaking English for 5 years anyway.

Put simply the test isn't hard if you are proficient in English.

I'm no worry about current requirement, IELTS 5 in four component not a hard issue

I just want to know what is the threshold of new English requirement, however, it's not yet announced

too bad these applicants cant apply through CEC plus most expect CIC to raise passing mark in order to cut off backlog....
