In an EAL test, the examiner would ask me whether I am studying or working, so the examiner would know that I am working and I live in Melbourne for the majority of my time.
Then the examiner might ask me to describe a change that will improve my local area. In this case, can I talk about the change that is going to happen in my hometown? (I didn't follow the news closely, so although I live in Melbourne, I cannot think of any change that is going to happen... )
Given that I live in Melbourne now, does 'my hometown' still considered as 'my local area', or 'local area' has to be the place I'm currently living?
Is it acceptable to say 'I can't think of any change that is going to happen in Melbourne, so I will talk about a positive change that is going to happen in my hometown'?
