► I feel like I am wasting my time … just waiting for the CELBAN news

NOTE: Although this message was written during the changes in national administrator of the CELBAN it may still apply, if you are waiting for an available seat for the exam.
Dear Kim,
My name is Z and I’m from Manitoba.  I have been waiting desperately for the news of the upcoming CELBAN schedules since CELAS centre no longer exist. I have been informed before by CELAS of my exam dates last summer but I guess it didnt push through because of the recent changes and the money that I paid didn’t reflect in my bank statement so I guess no.
I am writing to you because I need to enroll in writing classes or writing course you got there.  I really dont know what to take. All I want is someone to check in my work specifically in writing because I cant seem to get it right.  I have taken the iCelban exam at the MNU twice and my results with listening are 10 and reading are 8,9 but with writing I can’t seem to get it even at 7. I always get 6 on both the iCelban exams.  I didnt have the chance to take the speaking test because I don’t a a specific date yet.
So, I need your help in my writing.  I need someone to check what I have done and give me feedbacks  Also money wise it’s a little expensive hope you have some discount ? 😉
Also, I’m working full-time but on shifts. I work two weeks days, two weeks nights and alternate after that.  I am really determined to learn.  I feel like I am wasting my time which I am just waiting for the CELBAN news to come up.  So, here I am thinking on enrolling in writing course.  Will there be an coach to give me feedbacks? will I be able to see my work?  How is it gonna work?  ( too many question) tsk…
Hope to hear from you soon. Good day! Z

j0444389[1]Dear Z,

I know! I am desperate for news too! I completely understand. I spoke with one of my IENs, yesterday, who attended the  Speaking Conference Call. When I conducted her One-On-One assessment she told me she got a letter telling her she would be refunded the fee. So, if your cheque did not go through, then that is good news!
Your scores for listening and reading are excellent! Congratulations. Be proud about that! So few people can achieve what you have. And have hope, writing is my strength! And it is the first module I created! And I just completed Writing4IEHPs, which has been a two year project inspired four years ago! So your timing is perfect.
I guarantee you, if you are willing to work, then your writing score will increase with CELBANPrep! Why? Because CELBANPrep was created to do exactly what you need! For each assignment, for each lesson, for each week, you will be creating pieces of writing. You will submit them to your CELBANPrep Writing Coach, who will check your work to identify your weaknesses and provide feedback. Your writing coach will work with you until you are able to turn your weaknesses into strengths and not make those mistakes any more! Your bundle will include 1 months of tutoring, but if you need longer, extensions are available through the Tier 4 ~ Monthly Subscriptions of the Compassionate Pricing Policy.

It really is a magical process, because CELBANPrep has quality coaches with quality training to support you in your decision to commit to your preparations, practice daily, overcome your weaknesses and achieve your goals! In no time, especially with the Writing4IEHP modules, you will witness an improvement in your own writing. Witnessing those changes your confidence will increase.
So, Z, there are many options.
  1. You can start with an IEHP Writing Assessment, which requires the FREE Writing4IEHPs Quiz.
  2. Based on the outcome you can determine: which of the modules for Writing4IEHP do you need?
    • This is an affordable option where you can purchase the ones you need, and not the whole bundle unless it is required.
    • Tutoring is not only available it is recommended.
  3. You can then consider the CELBANPrep Writing Course Bundle. This includes:
  4. Accessing one resources at a time is a more affordable option. The other option is to access writing resources in a bundle. I recommend:

I know the prices are expensive, Z. Qu1zThat is why I offer resources individually or in bundles, depending on what each individual can afford. That way people can purchase as many resources and supports as they can, adding on along the way. This works especially for those who have time. For those who have less time to prepare, bundles are recommended. The thing is, I have been very transparent about what is included with each resource, each bundle, and the retail value of each resource and support.

I have not addressed CELBANPrep Speaking, because your focus is more on writing. But that too is available individually as CELBANPrep Speaking Course Bundle , or within the CELBANPrep Platinum Bundle.

At the end of the day, CELBANPrep is the best option for you as an IEN working full time, but on shifts. It has been created specifically for the needs of IENs who balance busy lives and can not commit to a traditional classroom setting with regular hours. Because of the IEPC Campus on the Cloud, CELBANPrep is available where you are when you are: even if that is 2:00 am after you put baby to sleep, or 7:00pm on Mondays but 10:00 am on Saturdays, with a different schedule the next week. You get to review the lessons and work on your assignments when you have time! All you need is a computer or tablet and access to the internet. You can even do your assignments when wifi is not available. Then simply copy and paste them as required. 
 
C0UP0NSmI have to say, you are wasting very valuable time just waiting for an available seat for the exam! This is the message I have been trying to relay throughout the summer. It takes time to prepare for the exam. Preparing now means you will be ready when seats are available. Not only will you be ready, you will also be confident! 
 
So make your decision. Commit. And with practice with quality coaches and quality training, so that you overcome your weaknesses and achieve! 
 
Sincerely,
Kim
