Re: PR arrived

I'm still with the same company and I gotta say I'm happy enough. Don't get me wrong it's not some super company cause people come and go all the time. It just suits me.

Re: Change in TFWP update

Re: Change in TFWP update

Re: IELTS English entrance exam

I agree with this. Fortunately for me I didn't need to do it in the end, as I got here just before the deadline. I remember practising for it though, and thinking, some of these questions are just...

Re: Canada here I COME!!!!!
