Studies and immigration to New Zealand – the story of Ivan Subbotin.
My name is Ivan Subbotin. I’m a businessman. The winner of the contest “Young Entrepreneur of Russia 2011”; in the nomination of a young master of business. I am 33 years old. By education, the conductor of the academic choir. Originally from a small town of Arzamas, Nizhny Novgorod region.
So, study and immigration to New Zealand & # 8230 ;.
I will try briefly about my studies and immigration to New Zealand.
The idea that it is possible to live in better conditions appeared after my trip to the decaying America in 2006.
I realized that you need to take higher education, work experience and earn enough money to not be on arrival as a homeless person.
And so he did. He graduated from the institute, he did not work for hire, but immediately opened his business for the sale of roofing materials. Entrepreneurship and life in the rush began to drag out. Sometimes he began to forget about his strategic goal.
After what Poo did with Ukraine in 2014, I realized that I simply can not physically stay in that country with those people. It’s stuffy, ashamed, disgusting & # 8230;
Began to actively prepare. The choice of the country, like everyone else, I think, went by the method of “English-speaking country +” much easier “.
New Zealand, perhaps, the only one left, where else you can legally leave even if you do not have millions of dollars.
In the winter of 2015, I first talked to Olga Kovaleva.
At once bribed her correctly delivered speech, absence of spelling mistakes, positive and speed of answers to hundreds of questions.
After a couple of months of negotiations, we decided that I will go on the Level 7 training program.
Then there was a very pleasant price action.
After having decided on the plan, I began to prepare the business for remote work, because I’m not yet ready to sell everything under the net. For this, one of the first in its region successfully implemented CRM and KPI systems, which allowed to automate the company’s work and increase profits, despite the crisis. In parallel, he taught the language with a private teacher.
Preparation took almost a year and a half.
IELTS I did not hand over & # 8212; passed the internal test of the institute. Translations of documents, medical commission, application for online visa, payment of the course & # 8212; everything went without a single clue.
Arrived in March 2016.
All this led me according to the plan, studying and immigrating to New Zealand. & # 8230 ;.
About the country, about New Zealand.
All my thoughts and forecasts were confirmed & # 8212; here, indeed, chic conditions for people’s lives are created!
Believe what is written on the Internet!
Oakland, in my senses, looks like a huge, perfect cottage community. Only the skyscrapers and the tower in the center are slightly out of this picture.
It’s very easy to buy a car. Machines are 10-15 years old in a smart technical condition.
It is very clean, there are no puddles and mud at all! That’s the feeling, when you’ve been driving a car for half a year, and you still do not need to wash it!
Ideal roads, markings, signs. Devilishly polite drivers))
There are not many Russians here. About 30% of them are quilted. Not zombied fellow citizens are very friendly and always ready to support in word and deed, which shock a little, in the beginning.
The terrain is hilly. Surprisingly beautiful views of the ocean, the islands.
Local winter is very similar to our September month. The rains are mostly at night. In Auckland the wind is not strong, do not worry!
Housing is not a problem at all, just do not need to try to rent an apartment in the center of the city! There & # 8212; input & # 8212; ruble, output & # 8212; two & # 187 ;! It is better to immediately rent a room in a house in the suburbs. There are hundreds of them to choose from. Communication with neighbors will help to get on course, and cheaper simply.
Study in New Zealand.
We must pay tribute to the fact that the discipline in the class is good. Attendance & # 8212; in general, a sacred cow. for immigrant students. To obtain a work visa, it must be at least 90%, so the audience is always full.
The course, sort of like, for a year, but in fact lasts 9 calendar months. Every 2 months there is a vacation for 2 weeks. It’s time for traveling!
Homework, as such, no. Approximately 5 works or tests must be submitted for every 2 months of study. This is not difficult at all. Everything, as usual, makes them for the last two nights before the surrender)
The group has about 30 people. The age of the students is 24-35. A quarter of the Chinese, a quarter of the Hindus, a quarter of the Brazilians. The rest & # 8212; where’s everyone from)
Of the minuses.
English for life in Auckland you will not really need. Do not be surprised, but here you can easily live without knowing the language. Everything is so arranged that you can not speak English at all.
At the institute, everything that you will do & # 8212; it’s listen. For home essays & # 8212; Google translator to help you.
Yes, the language will be needed for work, but if there is money then the work does not burn, especially.
With neighbors around the house, you can see every three days.
In shops and at gas stations & # 8212; self-service.
There is a possibility that you are plunged headlong into an Internet. Most likely, Russian-speaking Internet.
So sometimes you just have to force yourself to go out and look for the opportunity to communicate with someone in English.
Communicate, most likely, will have with the Chinese or Indians, because in order to find a real kiwi in Auckland, you need to try very hard. Russian guys told me that they saw “real” New Zealanders in Wellington. It will be necessary to get there somehow, at least look at them))
Alternatively, you can hire a private English teacher to not forget the language and prepare for the IELTS. Approximately $ 50 for a 1.5-2 hour lesson. Or get together with a group on interests through MeetUp.
If you are traveling with your wife / girlfriend & # 8212; be ready for a very serious test of the strength of your relationship!
The probability of decay, unfortunately, is high.
Causes? The whole established way of your life together and the comfort zone will be changed. You will look at your companion / satellite in a new way and not always this new look will be turned to the positive aspects of a joint life.
The only thing that may possibly be able to withstand the process of disintegration will be, in my opinion, your children. Of course, if you have them.
They bite at everything, practically. The most troubling is the price of food. Yes, they are very sophisticated and qualitative, but why is it so expensive in a country that itself produces all this ?!
On clothes the choice is not so limited, as they write on the forums. And sales are on a regular basis.
Here’s the shoe & # 8212; ambush! Something normal starts at $ 150 & # 8230;
I will not bore you!
Information and impressions have accumulated a lot, but all this does not invest in the scope of one review.
I can say that I am very pleased and everything is going according to plan.
In parallel, I study a new profession of a stock trader, because I want to be free in every sense of the word. In Russia, my small business is working. In Russia my parents are waiting for me. I can not leave them alone, so I will return there in a year, as planned, after receiving a residence permit.
For this, I need to find a job.
About the Future.
If you ask me, in which sphere I see myself, I will answer that I would like to advise the CIS children on issues of emigration.
And I do not care about money and career, because I have enough of both.
I want to help people break out of the swamp of the Russian world. ” I want to show them that you can live in a normal country! I want to say that they are worth it! That you do not need to burn your life and endure injustice, lawlessness, corruption, rudeness.
And I’m already starting to work in the team of Kiwi Zone!
I’m close to their fighting spirit, their values and approach to business are close. I understand that all this comes from the founder of the company & # 8212; Dmitry Belevich and sincerely glad that he has become a part of this company!
And to everyone who still doubts I want to say one thing: Enough of procrastination! Time flies! OPERATE!
So, study and immigration to New Zealand!
Sincerely, Ivan Subbotin.

Dear Ivan! It is unfortunate that you have this opinion: & # 171; & # 8230; I realized that I simply can not physically stay in that country, with those people. It’s stuffy, ashamed, disgusting … & # 187; and the fact that the Russians are “cotton” in your understanding. In 2015, I chose your company as Galaxy & # 187; primarily for the reason that this company is one of the few in this micro-region of companies that has its own logistics and of course I trusted. I will not describe that you have wonderful employees and everything from the moment of consultation, purchase, payment, delivery & # 8212; everything went smoothly.
But now I would like to focus on people like me & # 8212; buyers. Believe me, if in 2015 I knew that in your eyes I would not become your client. How can you treat people who give you their money that way and through which you realize your dreams? How can you conduct your business at all, upload videos, including congratulations to employees of the company on your birthday, and at the same time look happy or create visibility, but inside you are disgusting, ashamed and stuffy. It turns out as always & # 8212; we live where we like, and we earn in Russia?
Regarding the PU agrees with you, but the Motherland is not a PU, the Motherland is the place where we were born and grew up, it will always be inextricably linked with our parents (I hope for you they still are not “cotton”).
