Not sure on the writing bit though....watch this space.
Reading bit was not too bad, there is always the danger that the subject will be boring and you wont absorb the information. The first subject was about EU transport , then a really good piece about parrots in Australia, they even mentioned Kangaroo Island so made the whole subject more interesting, then the final subject was about codebreaking a bit "Da Vinci Code"ish so too was very interesting.
Going to relax tonight with a large bottle of red wine and a bar of chocolate, and hopefully big celebrations in 2 weeks time.
Hey, I did my test on Saturday too, but in Adelaide, agree the reading part is the hardest, when they were calling out the names for us to go to the speaking tests the guy was so releived to have an English name to call, they were really struggling trying to pronounce all the chinese, Japanese and Indian names!
The girl who did my speaking test apologised before we started, saying she would be asking me some really silly questions.....do I eat fruit and veg......? It was quite funny.....
I also saw a Chinese student from work who was gobsmacked when she saw me there, asked 'WHY?' (cost me $310 too so I better pass!!!!)
Jane...yes wine was great, went down all too quickly though. Good luck for yours. ;)
Found out what a small world we live in at the test, met someone who works at the same place I do, and guess where they are moving to next year???? Adelaide!!!! can you believe it.
Stomky...will have to compare notes on December 5th
Results came in a day early
Listening 9, Reading 9, Writing 8.5, Speaking 9.
Absolutely chuffed, more red wine flowing
Congrates on passing well done you.
