This question reposted from a comment on another post: What can you recommend as the best bundle for CELBAN that I can purchase?
Wow that was fast! I just posted this question and answer!
First, I recommend the free resources at http://www.celban.info. Here you will get a self assessment for writing, and practice tests for reading and listening with a study guide for speaking.
Second, I recommend you go to http://www.celbanprep.info to find out about the for fee resources. You will find out more about the courses (4 lessons in 4 weeks for Speaking, 8 lessons in 8 weeks for Writing and the study guides and practice exams for reading and listening.) NOTE some people need longer to pass the mid session exam for writing and may take longer to complete the course.
Now that you have the background information, on to your real question. As you have already discovered Dear Kim please review the tags: writing reports, how it works and thank you. Here you will discover answers from what other people have to say about CELBANPrep.
Is it easier to practice online?
Originally I taught 4 classes in a classroom: one class for each skill. I discovered with the busy lives of nurses working shift work no one could attend all four classes. Yet I have developed one lesson for each task for speaking and eight lessons for writing. That is 12 lessons. If people can not attend 4 lessons how could they attend 12?
The answer is online. With all of the resources and the posting of assignments online, everyone can study at each person’s individual pace based on individual schedules and preferences. An IEN working 3-11 can post assignments at midnight. A mom getting up to feed baby at 4:00 and not able to get back to sleep, can read her lesson then. Someone travelling home to take care of family or attend a wedding, can continue his or her studies.
With everything online, you don’t have to pay for books, and extra costs for the facility.
For writing you get a writing coach, who works with you on your writing assignments in the same way you write e-mails. For speaking you get to attend conference calls, in the same way you talk to people back home on Skype.
Basically, you already engage in the same activities that have been integrated into CELBANPrep. Why? Because it works. CELBANPrep is available where you are, when you are.
Finally, if you are still not sure contact people who have commented on Dear Kim or who show in their comments on Facebook that they have subscribed to CELBANPrep. Ask them, is it easy to practice online? They will tell you CELBANPrep is easy to follow, and it takes time management to make the time to practice.
Taking the CELBAN without preparation can be detrimental. See my tag: WARNING.
I hope this answers your question, Baljit!
