Hey guys, you are listening to the English Made Simple show, this is episode number 1-9-0, number one hundred and ninety, numero ciento noventa

Welcome amigos y amigas, how are you? My name is Milena from www.englishmadesimple.net and you know how I always start my episodes with the episode number and then saying the same episode number in Spanish… it’s because the majority of my listeners are based in South and Central America. More specifically from Chile. For some reason Chile is always in the top 5 countries that listen to the English Made Simple show.

If you have been listening to the show for a while, you will know that I have started this podcast while living in Chile. I have started this podcast initially to focus on English learning however, as of recently, I have decided to pivot and focus on helping non-native speakers call Australia their home.

What this means is that there will still be an English learning component to the show as I am helping non-native speakers, non-English speakers adapt to life in Australia.

They do need help with English but they will need it for more practical things like speaking over the phone, emailing a recruitment agent, applying for work in Australia – you will need be pretty confident at speaking English to do all of this!

From time to time, I will bring on guests on the show but most of the time it’s just going to be me.

For those of you who are joining us for the first time, please know that I have outlined this in episode 186 – What’s New For English Made Simple.
This month I talk about Australia and life in Australia. Most of the episodes are about Australia however, next week we will start with a new topic.

It’s not a huge change, except having the guests on the show, the majority of the content will be centred on life in Australia as a non-native speaker.

I will be covering more content that will help you adapt faster as a non-native speaker, i.e you’ll need the right English skills to survive in Australia.

So today’s episode is slightly different.

If you had been listening to this show and are thinking, it would be cool to live in Australia but you are not sure of how to make the move… then listen up!

I am going to list 5 options for you to consider:

Number 1: Permanent Residence – if you have the skills and/or experience that is in demand in Australia or New Zealand – you could consider applying for a skilled visa.

Not sure what skills are in demand? The Australian government has it listed on their website. I am going to include the link in the show notes when after this episode goes live.

This is how my family and I immigrated to New Zealand. Yes, New Zealand has various immigration programs too.

Number 2: Working Holiday Visa

Some countries have a special relationship with Australia so you are able to come here on a Working Holiday Visa, but you have to be within a certain age group. For example, people who want to visit Australia for 1 year for work and pleasure – travel and work – they have to be between the ages of 18 and 30 years of age. And it’s best to either speak with an Immigration agent or go to the Australian website to check the details.

Number 2: Student visa

You can come here to study. Now I don’t know if there is an age restriction for a student visa, but you can study in Australian Universities irrespective of your age.

I’ve partnered with Soraya from Tour Studies so you are welcome to have a chat with Soraya. She is fluent in Spanish and English. You can go to www.englishmadesimple.net/188 – this was in episode 188. Soraya can help you with different types of visas including the student & working holiday visas.

Number 4: Au Pairs

Do you like kids? You can move to Australia to babysit and get paid while doing it. This arrangement is called Au Pairs – and it’s like a live-in nanny.

Number 5: Work sponsorship

You can get a work sponsorship to come to Australia. I know some of my friends came to Australia that way.

Number 5: Investment
Do you have a spare $5 million dollars? Haha Then guess what, you are welcome to come here and bring your family too. The trick is that you would have to invest $5million into something like establishing a business or purchasing an investment property. It’s one way to come to Australia. I think it’s called Business Innovation and Investment visa.

I only listed 5 ways, but there are many many more different ways to make the move. Some are simple and some more complicated. This is why it’s best to speak with a qualified migration agent.
The agent must be licensed with MARA – Migration Agents Registration Authority. That’s how you know you are speaking with the right one.

So there we have it boys and girls, some food for thought. That’s an expression which means, something to consider, something to think about.
