not so hard (in reply to: It's hard to be Canadian now)
well it is pretty hard...I did well because I was born and educated here. I got a few questions wrong on practice tests..no studying. I am a high school teacher so I did expect to do well. My students would not do well and would have to study a lot. One must get 80% to pass. There are some tricky questions but I think I take for granted what I know merely by being a citizen. I cannot imagine if one is ESL...many questions were based on "candian lingo" that is hard to explain to a foreigner.

PL,

If you were born and educated in Canada, why did you write the citizenship exam? That doesn´t make any sense.

You can´t imagine an ESL person passing the test? You seem to have very limited experiences as a teacher. There have been, there are and there will be thousands of ESL canadians who passed the test succesfully.

Yes, it's harder... (in reply to: It's hard to be Canadian now)
...nut also many immigrants do not give it the appropriate importance. They expect it to be easier so they relax... and fail.

But don;t worry, Mammy Canada will take care of these guys by making it easier.

Unless you are an idiot (in reply to: It's hard to be Canadian now)
You study the materials the want you to study and period. It is not a rocket science test at all.
