I am a registered nurse form the Philippines. Me and my family have been living here in Canada for almost 5 years since we arrived in September. And yes, Winnipeg is our first stop. We are currently residing here in Winnipeg and we haven’t lived anywhere else in Canada. In additon to this, I just got my license as registered from the Philippines last August and am currently working on my english proficiency.
On the other hand, I have a CLB score of L: 9 R: 9 S: 9, and 8 on writing.
Actually, I have already purchased your Celban preparation. And I think it is helping me a lot. However, my schedule for CELBAN will be on May 21st and 22nd. So, it’s next week! I was thinking of not taking my CELBAN on the said date after I read your advice from other people. However, I can not reschedule my assessment for CELBAN because they can not give me the refund of assessment fee since my schedule for CELBAN is due in less than a week. For now, I’m doing the best I can in order to prepare for my upcoming CELBAN. I’m very positive that I will achieve the scores that I’m required to get. If ever I don’t pass, I will take it as an expereince and I will make sure that I’m prepared and confident the next time I will take the CELBAN – of course, with your help. Thank you very much Kim for helping us “New Canadians” achieve our goal in a smooth way.

My perspective is that it is OK to take the exam for the first time:
- as an experiment to learn about the format,
- so you can do the best you can, where you are today,
- and get the feedback on strengths and weaknesses in the report you get for CELBAN writing and speaking.
It is when your weaknesses are identified that you will know what is lowing you down, standing in your way, or stopping you from obtaining your dream of life in Canada.
This is the best kind of scenario because the more stress you feel, the less confident you feel, the more impact there is on your score.
So if something happens in the speaking portion of the CELBAN exam that you are not sure how to proceed: think as a Canadian, act as a Canadian rather than a Filipino.
