What are your travel plans? Do you have any employment plans or are you just going to arrove and go for it? Also super excited - Sept/Oct seems like a long way away but I know it'll be here before we know it!

You might be OK. I know a few people here who can't speak French - it depends what job you were hoping to get because service jobs, e.g. shop work, ideally need both but some of my new friends out here speak English all the time in their job. Showing that you're willing to make the effort to improve seems to go a long way though...

I haven't got a job out here yet but that's because I'm a geophysicist so there's not as many opportunities or vacancies, although I have some interviews coming up. But no, I'm not bilingual. I went to a French school in France for two months before moving here because I couldn't speak a single word of French (except bonjour) and since then I've carried on practising. Montreal's easy to get away with speaking English all the time though...

Hi I am new to this and was looking for some information on applying for the 2012 international experience. I saw in some other peoples comments about police reports, how do you go about getting these? And does anyone know of a possible date for when we are able to apply?
Thanks

Hi, and welcome.

A quick search of the forum (or the Wiki) will reveal the info you are searching for (as will post no. 4 on this thread, which answered those very questions). Please take a look at the other IEC thread that is running which has loads of info in. If you could also take the time to read the Newcomers to the Forum sticky thread (link in my signature) it would be very much appreciated.

As the OP has had his questions answered and the other IEC thread was started with the aim of keeping all IEC info in one place, I shall close this thread now - OP please do PM me if you'd like it reopened.
