Preparation time depends on the person. Some people have lots of time, and no children. These people can practice often, and post lots of assignments. They improve quickly. Other How longpeople have less time and are balancing work, study and family. These people take more time. Not only that, it depends on the starting point. Some people take CELBANPrep with a high CLB. For them it is only a matter of learning what is expected of the exam. For other people they have grammar weaknesses. It takes much longer for people who need to learn and improve their grammar. At a minimum preparing for CELBAN writing takes at least two months if you have a 7 in IELTS but some people need longer (6 months to a year if they have a 5).

The Grammar Essentials online courses, classes and material offered within the CELBANPrep Silver bundle were created to decrease that time by quickening in the process of turning their weaknesses into strengths.

At least that is what I have found after teaching hundreds of IENs through the years; because worked with everyone that came to me regardless of their score.

I hope this helps.


Since the time of writing this Reids – who wrote this question – has been an amazing resource to me; she was one of the IENs I trained up as a Writing Coach. She is now a Registered Nurse, having successfully achieved her goal many years ago.

The update includes new links, and a bit more information gleaned through the years.

Amazingly, over 1500 people have read this post alone!
