Hey DB: A question for you. Did you take the IELTS? Just wondering since we both applied at the same time and I did not (yet) get a request to do it. You mentioned others who applied at the same time as we did started getting IELTS requests. Just curious if you did your test or not. Thanks DB.

no, I did not, I claim it by several reference letters from my profs, co-workers, classmates, and some photo I took when I was doing presentation in the conference.

I was not asked for IELTS

my background at that time is just undergraduated student in a public institution, no master degree like you.

I think somehow language claim is most about the content instead of just education background, which means you have to claim firmly

I know. I hope my letters were comprehensive enough though. I got in-depth letters from work and a professor and gave examples of everything required for high-proficiency in English according to the Canadian Language Benchmarks. I sent them graded essays, my final year theisis, class notes etc. I also wrote a letter from myself claiming that English is my first language, I speak the language with native fluency and I´ve spoken the language since birth. I´m just plagued by doubts right now after reading threads of people being asked for IELTS 9 months after AOR. Why doesn´t this IA hurry up and arrive.

oh ,really, this is kind of scare, but what can we do? stay prepared? have to work, no time to think about exam.

English is not my first language, I don´t have formal trainning like ESL, in my personal statement, I told CIC I learn English from "big birds", and by reading " English grammar for dummies". I past TOEFL though.

Hopefully , cic has common sense, since the town I live have less than 3% immigrants (less than 200 people), if I can´t speak English fluently, how can I survive?
