Hi, my apology if i haven’t get back to you right away, quite busy these days. By the way, i’m from the philippines and a registered nurse there. However, I ‘m currently working in singapore as an enrolled nurse. and i’m processing my papers to migrate in canada unfortunately, the visa application has been hold.
Anyway, before stepping into canada i am doing research on how to apply as a registered nurse. IELTS is one of the requirements and actually I have tried many times in academic for ielts but i can’t make it and there is an option which is the CELBAN ( hope this will suit me).
I hope I can gain some information about this coz i don’t have any idea on this and will pass the exam on the appointed time.
Thanks for having this program for free. God bless
Welcome! It is great that you contacted me from Singapore before migrating to Canada. Although your process has been postponed, I encourage you to see it as a gift of time. While many people begin preparing for their licensure process to become a nurse in Canada once they land, it really is best to start the process and do as much as possible from overseas: especially when it comes to the English Proficiency exams.
Doing as much as you can to improve your skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking when it comes to grammar, accuracy, speed and vocabulary are so very important.
This is a list of what is available on Amazon through CELBANPrep:
- CELBANPrep Speaking
- CELBANPrep Writing Level One
- CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials
- CELBANPrep Writing Level Two
- CELBANPrep Reading and Listening Complete
- NOTE: you will be required to get a membership at http://www.CELBANPrep.info to print the downloadable Test and Answer booklets, which could not be included in the e-books for Reading and Listening Complete. There is a nominal fee for this.
Life as an immigrant in Canada can be especially stressful, many people struggle with managing time to be able to study. I honestly believe that preparing for an English exam while making a good wage, surrounded by the support of friends and family is a smoother path than trying to so the same while making minimum wage and dealing with the heartache and loneliness of homesickness ~ even if it is not one’s first home.
I have written a to others, who have contacted me from overseas. I encourage you to read what they wrote, and my replies to them. I believe that many of your questions will be answered in this way.
