Question Letter attesting native language?

Hi - I need advice on where to go for a letter attesting my native language is English. Is this something I need to ask a solicitor for, or would a letter from a University lecturer suffice?

Also, in the checklist of documents to provide it lists 'notarized employment contracts from your present and past employers - do I really need to get these as far back as age 18?

Hi

About the language, in my opinion if you are from non English speaking country, but you know English well or very well, just take the IELTS, this is confident proof and you can check what level of English you represent.

If the checklist says you need to submit specific docs, just do it, these are the basic requirements and you have to submit all they want.

good luck
MJ

Ig English is your native language that can usually be done by stating that you were born, raised and schooled in the English language in wherever it was. If you spent considerable time overseas then you should mention the schools you attended through primary and on..

I am from britain, and english is my first-language but the documentation says that even if this is the case you need a letter and attesting to this I just haven't a clue who I need to speak to about this :-)

If you have ann all English background you can just say so and give some details as to schooling and employment history.

Great! Thanks Jim. I really appreciate your advice on this. Applying is daunting, but keeping in mind why we are going through this keeps the motivation levels up :-)
