Thank you so much for your support. I did CELBAN, and I dont feel good with my performance. I think I messed up with my writing.. I had to write an incident report… I had problems with time management for that.. If I had enough time to follow your lessons, and doing corrected assignments in a proper way, I would have done very well…
I think I did well in speaking because of your big help and God’s grace. The one on one and group calling was excellent. That helped me a lot. That really works for us international nurses. I recommended CELBANPrep to two girls I met in the exam, and I will do the same whoever ask me about CELBAN, because, I am sure that, If someone use this resource accurately, they would definitely see success. I would like to continue my classes Kim. Hope we will meet again.
Thank you for letting me know how you felt about the exam. I am glad that you felt supported and prepared for the CELBAN Speaking. Not only did you have time to access the 4 lessons, you took the time to schedule the Conference Call and a one-on-one consultation with me. As I told you on the phone, I was very confident in your skills and abilities, when it came to speaking.
I did also tell you when reviewing your writing for the CELBANPrep Writing tutoring, that the fact that you did not have time to complete all 8 lessons would have an impact on your performance for the exam. Learning how to identify your own personal errors and turn your weaknesses into strengths takes time. It is unfortunate that you only learned about CELBANPrep a few weeks before your exam, and that your work permit is expiring. This element added additional pressure onto you about writing the exam now, rather than waiting as I had recommended when you first contacted me. But I am glad that you see the value and worth of the 8 lessons, and know that had you had time to complete all of the lessons you would have had better time management when writing the report.
My hope for you, S, is that although you did not have time to complete the lessons, that your strengths with the English language will allow you to celebrate passing the exam soon! Please let me know your results when you get them!
And thank you, for telling people about CELBANPrep! I am impressed by the fact that although you have been with me for such a short time and were not able to complete the writing lessons before the exam, that you have such a strong impression about the resources that you have used!
CELBANPrep Writing Level One is 4 lessons in 4 weeks, including three months of writing tutoring. It is not possible to take this course in a shorter amount of time. Often people need more than 8 weeks to learn how to manage time, to identify personal weaknesses and turn them to strengths. This person decided to subscribe to CELBANPrep knowing she did not have time to complete the course, because of her limited time in Canada as a result of her immigration status. She purchased a bundle, so that she could use what time she had available to her to prepare. She did the best she could, but even she, after writing the exam, knew that not only would she have been better prepared to spend time on each lesson, but also that her confidence level would have been higher. Take this as a word of warning: take time to prepare for your CELBAN Writing exam.
