One of the best ways to ensure that learning English as a second language was
a good investment of your time is to make sure that you have the opportunity
to speak the language often. Because they took the course in the first place,
many people think that they will have this opportunity in abundance. However,
it is surprising how rusty you can get when you don't speak the language
of necessity often. If you live on a piece of downtown Toronto real estate in
Canada, you will have the ability to practice all the time.
An international move is nothing to take lightly, whether it is for economic
reasons or simply for a change. One of the big factors that will weigh in on
your decision to move to Canada will be the Office of Immigration.
Canada, like many other countries, has rules which limit the amount of people
who can move to the country in any one year. The main concern is that people
moving to Canada will be employed at jobs which could have gone to Canadians;
you will find a lot of the red tape you encounter dealing with that issue specifically.
Even a job as straightforward as operating a municipal vehicle will often require
an extensive effort on the part of both you and your prospective employer detailing
why there are no qualified Canadian candidates.
Of course, that is just for employment purposes; there are many other reasons
for people to wish to move to the country. Since you are interested in ESL,
then education might be your primary motivation for relocation. Gaining a student
visa is a lot easier than being granted a work visa, because the universities
love international students. You can find a lot of the necessary applicant information
on their websites, after which it is a matter of choosing to live on campus
or paying rent in Richmond Hill condos.
Whether you moved to Canada for work or school in the first place, when you
have stayed in that suite at 18 Yorkville (or wherever you moved in) for long
enough, you will have a shot at becoming a Canadian citizen. After having lived
in the country for a total of three in four years you can become a Canadian
and not have to worry about all those visas or green cards anymore. Of course,
being able to speak passable English or French is a part of the requirement,
so you will find your ESL courses once again stand you in good stead.
Moving to Canada is a beneficial action on the part of any ESL student. Although
the act itself does involve considerable labour, from filling out paperwork
to choosing between apartments or Toronto lofts as a residence, the rewards
