    Well done LiLi. cheers

    I find it remarkable how much time and effort our Chinese wives put in on the PC with their English learning. Hard work and commitment does pay off.

    Could you imagine us doing the same with the Chinese Language Rolling Eyes

    Hi David Smile .

    Thank you very much.

    Li Li does know more about Life in the U K than me Laughing .

    She knows all weird stuff like
    Question " The official report of the proceedings of parliament is called a " ------- scratch
    Answer " Hansard " .

    She does still need to improve her English listening and talking, we both know that. At least we are on the right road as so to speak Laughing Smile .
    In time that will get better and in the meantime we can enjoy our Life together Very Happy .

    Steve and Li Li Very Happy Smile .

    Hi Alan.

    Thank you very much Smile
    You are right in what you say regarding our Chinese Wifes in terms of how much time and effort they put in to the Computer to try and learn.
    If the shoe was on the other foot would I be able to learn Chinese Question I think possibly not to the degree like Li Li has achieved so far anyway. I might know a couple of words but the Chinese symbols just blow me away to be completely honest scratch .
    Li Li like all the other Wifes before her who have either took this test or gone to college or possibly done both to learn English has my up most respect.

    Hi Eric and Han.

    Thank you both very much Smile .
    You know full well as Han as also passed this test recently what is involved.

    Maybe now it is a little time out from the computer apart from QQ and the other web sites Li Li goes on lol! .
    In some respects I feel between the P C and the phone that they are her Life lines. Unfortunately most of my time seems to be spent at work Crying or Very sad .

    Hi Derek and Tina.

    Thank you both very much Smile .

    To be truthful, I was more nervous than Li Li going in for the test.
    Much to her amusement Laughing .
    She told me when she was younger in School and College there was lots of tests and she has learnt how to relax a little and not worry about them.
    Now is a little time for R & R lol! .

    Hi Chris and Ying.

    Thank you both very much Smile .

    All credit goes to Li Li in all honesty, she has spent many hours reading study and looking on the computer. There have been times and she has been frustrated by it all and to be fair I do not blame her after looking at some of the questions she has to learn the answers too. I also sat with her and we did go through them together when I could and for me it was a headache and English is supposed to be my native tongue.

    I feel England could learn a lot from your ways especially the free 510 hours of teachings.
    Perhaps if I was not such a dead beat Australia would welcome me lol! .
    Your Country has a lot going for it.

    Steve and Li Li Very Happy Smile .

    Hi Gaffer.

    Thank you very much for that Smile .

    I also tried and failed the test.
    I know David said he did a mock test and passed but he is clever where I am not.
    Some of the questions are common sense ones and you the go to how much percentage of such a thing scratch .
    At least now that is behind us cheers .

    Hi Slow,
    they used to have a language test to get into Australia which they used to stop certain people from entering Australia. It looks like they are trying to do the same with potential immigrants to UK.

    I haven't heard or seen anything comparable with the UK here in Australia, I guess its only a matter of time maybe the money required in the UK to have basic English taught is exploitation, does this apply to refugees? We have 510 hours free to new immigrants here to take advantage of, why is the UK so different? With this test and that test, the UK testing is designed to take only the best immigrants I guess. A small over crowed island in reality, with limited space, I have no desire to live anymore in the UK, is London still part of England or Islam? I heard John Cleese make this observation whilst visiting Australia he said walking around London was like walking in a foreign city the mind boggles.

    David I don't know about a language test previously in Australia.

    Wanneroo, you are spot on in every aspect of your reply, I also heard John Cleese make that comment, good on him !

    The White Australia Policy, the policy of excluding all non-European people from immigrating into Australia, was the official policy of all governments and all mainstream political parties in Australia from the 1890s to the 1950s, and elements of the policy survived until the 1970s. Although the expression 'White Australia Policy' was never in official use, it was common in political and public debate throughout the period.
