Go Australia

AUSTRALIA. I guess the name is enough to bring your ears to what I am about to say. It is a dream destination for many who want to study abroad. And if you are one of them, I am sure you must be curious how do people live there, think there? What do Australians believe in? How will I adjust? Well, it is not like living with ISUS. Australians are as human as you are. May be in a different way.
So, before you land in Australia get your facts straight about it-:

FREEDOM MATTERS

Australians place a high value on independence and personal choice. Your teacher for a course will never tell you what you should do. But rather will give you choices. It is then completely your decision. In short, no spoon feeding happens.

OPINIONS

Australians believe in opinions. The teacher expects you to speak out your opinion on a particular topic and then a valid reason behind it.

EQUALITY

Australians are uncomfortable with the status difference. You may find people younger to you calling you by your first name or vice versa.

BALANCE

Australians believe in work, life balance. You might end up finding that the one that excels in your class is also the life of the party. So, if you want to gel up with them, don’t just study, participate in different activities as well.

PRIVACY MATTERS

Their notion of privacy means that areas such as financial matters, appearance and relationships are only discussed with close friends. They may tell you if they want to but you are supposed not to ask them.

Remember, no one is weird, above or low. No one is better than another, we all are different. So, respect the difference, embrace their culture and fly high.

Follow Your Dream

You need a IELTS band 6 or above if you want to study in good universities abroad. IELTS is a tough exam and it is not easy to get a high band especially if you have a broken English. There are four sections of IELTS -Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. You really need to work hard, very hard to get in there.

I know you must have heard all of this. It may be the case that you don’t have a strong command over the language. Most probably because you haven’t done your education in an English medium school. But here I tell you the truth. You are no less than any one out there who knows English. IELTS like any other competition is like a competition. It hardly matters how good you are, what matters is how well you prepare yourself and how well you perform on that particular day.

It doesn’t matters whether you know English, what matters is whether you are ready to make efforts. Whether you are ready to read newspaper, listen to BBC news. What matters is whether you are looking at how good your competitors are or are you looking at yourself. Improving yourself day by day. It doesn’t matter how good others are but how good you are than your previous version. And yes, “you” do matter. Because it is your exam, it is your fight. You are competing with yourself. You are fighting for your dream.

So, anyone out there, who thinks that they cant do this because may be they are very poor at English. Or may there competitors are really good. stop thinking. And start doing. Take the first step. Don’t look at others. Be sincere, work hard and follow your dreams. You never know what surprise life has in store for you.

Don’t fear. Fly High. All The Best.

Increase Your Vocabulary

There are times when you may want to talk good about something and sometimes we just talk “bad” about something. But the question is not whether you want to talk good or bad. The point is whether you refer the good by “good” always or you have some more words added to your vocabulary. Similarly with “bad”. Because if you use the same word more often the chances are that you may get a low band score in IELTS speaking. Because in speaking round, the examiner also checks your vocabulary.

Here I come with some synonyms of “good” and “bad”.

Learn The Difference

GREAT BRITAIN. THE UNITED KINGDOM. THE BRITISH ISLES.

Are you wondering why am I saying the same thing thrice? Are you one of those who think that United Kingdom and Great Britain are the same? Save Yourself and learn the difference. Yes. save yourself of the embarrassment you may have to face if you ever wish to talk about them.
The three are different and the difference is like mango is a fruit but all fruits are not mangoes. I won’t riddle much about this and come straight.

Great Britain

Great Britain is used to refer to the countries of England, Wales and Scotland together. And if you lose “great” Britain refers to England and Wales.

United Kingdom

United Kingdom refers to The Great Britain and Northern Ireland. We use ‘British’ or ‘Britons’ when we talk about the citizens of ‘United Kingdom’.

British Isles

It is a geographical term. British Isles refers to Ireland, Great Britain and other islands.

Note : British Isles refers to geography and not nationality. So, although Republic of Ireland is part of British Isles, people of Republic of Ireland are not British.
Figure out what you are trying to talk about and use the terms wisely.
