Dreamers

which are you

The first group of people who come to me are the Dreamers. Dreamers are people who have come to Canada/ are planning on coming to Canada, to start a new life here.

♪♪ A Guide to Evaluating CELBAN Resources ~ I just heard about NNAS and immediately signed up

Hi Kim,

I have been searching on how to write in this blog for a while now but I can’t find the link so I just made a comment here… Anyway, I just arrived here in Canada just a couple of weeks ago and I’m also from the Philippines like majority of the people here. I just heard about NNAS and immediately signed up and finished my payment. Unfortunately, I need to take IELTS/CELBAN that’s how I landed on this forum. I have already taken IELTS GT back home and got 8 in reading, 7,5 in listening and speaking, and 6.5 in writing. I don’t want to risk and have my papers delayed by failing the ACAD so I’m planning on taking CELBAN… What should I do? Your comments are so positive it keeps everybody’s hopes up. Thank you. JR

NOTE: This message was written before the summer of 2014 when CELAS was still the national administrator of the CELBAN. There is a new national administrator of the exam. Still the issues facing Strained Achievers is timeless. KK
Dear Kim,
i have a concern, I isn’t registered or never been applied for celban exam. because your website shows full up to december 2014, so my worry is my safety nursing experience bckhome will expire on november 2014 therefore i must be able to pass english exam before november so i can get license before november,.Now can i study celban material even though i wasnt applied? because if i will apply on december as shown on your website which is open.will be useless.however acccording to marie claire there are no interruption in celban service. so that means i can able to take the exam whenever i am ready?
