As you can tell from this comment, Rieds wrote this message after individuals slandered the good work that I was doing: accusing me of being/creating a scam simply because they did not understand that the CELBAN is unlike any other exam and so you can not prepare for this exam like you do for other exams. It is a Canadian exam built and structured upon the principles, philosophies and methods of the Canadian education system.
Some people get angry because the textbooks I created are not filled with test questions, which they have become accustomed to. I promise you this: preparing for the CELBAN through sample tests and practice exams will not help you to prepare for the exam. You MUST demonstrate skills when it comes to:
- creating communications in English (writing and speaking) and
- interpreting communications in English (reading and listening.
And you MUST be able to do so in moderately demanding to demanding medical contexts and situations.
Simply answering questions on some practice test WILL NOT GET YOU TO WHERE YOU ARE GOING!
Having studied with me, Rieds knew this. Having taken the CELBAN and passed it after taking CELBANPrep, Rieds knew this. Having been trained up as a Writing Coach, Reids knew this.
I was so touched by her comment, I wrote her back, immediately.
It is sooo good to hear from you again. Of course, what you have written is true. Yes, I agree to the whole of it. I am grateful that in a world dull of judgement, skeptics and pessimists to know that you stand in the Light of God: bathing in it.
I am ever mindful of how God has carried me through various aspects of my life; and, how much He has guided me in creating CELBANPrep. It is a true demonstration of His love for His children regardless of nationality. That these text books exist is more evidence of that undying love and His will that IENs find/have the support and resources they need to create better lives/lift themselves out of poverty/ obtain their dreams.
I am so deeply touched by your words. I look forward to the day that God blesses me to come to where you live so that I can meet you face to face! I had that intent a long time ago. It got lost in the ashes. But, your message has resurrected that intent like a Pheonix! 🙂
Do take care of yourself Rieds! And thank you for your prayers for me. I felt them. They were answered. This work is a testimony and witness of that!
