    @ana_gdel may nabasa ako sa kabilang forum na pwede i-try yung PTE Academic, alternative sa IELTS pero mas mabilis ang result, less than a week daw may result na. di ko lang alam kung may test center sa pinas. good luck.

    Omg!! I just had a look on this and DIBP accepts this type of exam for 189 visa. Pati na rin yung Cambridge Advance. Ang dami ng options. Nakakatuwa! The test fee is USD$205.00 plus the fact that you only need to wait for 5 days to get your result. Looks promising.. I'll research for the feedback of others about this.. :)

    Thank you so much for sharing this!! :)

    ^^ I think yes for PTE Academic. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140624223911-123492053-australia-to-allow-more-language-test-options-for-visas

    I haven't looked on Cambridge Advanced. Parang di ko rin feel yan kasi ang impression ko baka similar kay IELTS. Lol

    Takers will be graded by a computer, including your speaking exams. I guess I have to practice more on the correct pronunciation just to make sure the computer will recognize it. I have read somewhere in another forum that your key for getting a higher grade in PTE Academic is coherence for your writing while correct pronunciation for speaking..

    @filipinacpa hi sis, I tried the mock exam for Cambridge Advance yesterday and it is so much easier compared to IELTS coz the conversations will be played twice, so there will be a chance that you could perfect the test, since we are used to do the IELTS test, this is just a piece of cake for us.(yabang ko noh?!!)

    @imeetr Hi sis that is good news. I can't find any good info re: Cambridge Advanced such as their scoring, test modules, test centers in the Phil, exam fees, etc..

    If this will be easier since we are (I supposed) well-trained already on how IELTS exam goes, then perhaps I could give this one a try too.

    Just want to ask what are the top websites where I can find english speaking partners? Also, can you give me some tips and practice materials on how to improve my english speaking skill especially from those people who had a lot of retakes just to get a score of at least 7 in speaking.

    @Ozizero eto mga ginawa kong preparation for speaking.

    1. Watch youtube videos. Magkaidea ka kung pano ang speaking test and kung pano sumagot.

    2. Practice it with a partner(a friend, bf, gf, wife, husbandl or anyone fluent in english and is capable of correcting your mistakes.

    3 use the language weeks before the exam para hindi masyado kabahan at masanay sa pakikipagusap sa ingles.
