First of all, I would like to thank you for the helpful info that you have given others which I have browsed in your sites. I, too, have similar situations and concerns like many IENS here in Canada trying to pursue their nursing profession.
I am from the Philippines. I am registered nurse back home with clinical experience of about 4 years. I arrived here in Calgary last January of this year, together with my family.
Yes, I have recently taken the CLBPT. My scores are as follow: (7)listening, (8) speaking, (8) reading, (7) writing.
I have not taken any english exams before (IELTS/CELBAN). I plan to take CELBAN very soon. I would just like to know if I can take my CELBAN first, then once I successfully have my results, I plan to apply for the NNAS. As with the NNAS, its about a year period that I must complete the process so as to avoid additional fees for extension. And the CELBAN score is part of its requirements.
I am looking forward to any valuable info from you that can assist me in my test taking CELBAN. I am just like the many that you have encountered who are at the starting point in Canada with not so much resources and finances, but with very big dreams to fulfill here in Canada. I love it here for sure!
Thank you for sending those emails each day. I really appreciate it. Im just a bit confused which test am i going to take, or ,which one is much easier for me,whether celban or ielts. English proficiency is the only exam left for me to get my RPN lisence here in canada and i must admit that i am no good in english grammar to begin with. And then i saw your name [on Dear Kim] answering all these questions and helping us by giving some tips. I taught that it would be of great help reading all the tips you have been sending us.
Maybe one time i will sit and open my computer to write down my questions. And i want to thank you in advance. Have a nice day ahead. God Bless!
I am good. actually i performed exam one time, and i got scores as below:
so now i am little confused that should I get coaching or should I do preparation myself. Thats why i didnt give you any response.
Hi! I purchased the CelbanPrep bundle study last August 20,2018, but unfortunately I do not get what I am expecting.
- Firstly, the reading practice is not complete. I can only access the Skim and Scan.
- Second, for the reading comprehension only the answers sheet and the questions,does not contain the reading
I purchased the Celbanprep without second thought, to be able for me to practice however I am so disappointed.
I hope you could do something more helpful that just like a bite in a piece of pizza.
Before the CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials Series it took many nurses six months to prepare for the CELBAN. But through the concentrated focus of the CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials Series, IENs were able to transform weaknesses into strengths within a matter of weeks! By creating sentences, learning how to edit them, and having them reviewed by a Writing Coach, IENs were able to prepare for the CELBAN – achieving higher benchmarks – in less time!
One thing is bothering me for a long time and I am not sure should I shared it or not as it might hurt you. But if I will not share I will not feel relax by thinking: it could be a good suggestion. Heartily, its my humble request to you, if you do not like it please disregard it happily.
Well, I was thinking why not to create a little grammar resource for CELBAN writings?
As I am writing for a long time; I have observed that most of candidates do the same mistakes for [CELBANPrep Writing Level One] 1 to 4 assignment. Like spacing, capital I and first letter of every sentence, agreement of tense and verb, punctuation articles and spellings . Especially, the candidates who are new to computer skills. When I read others’ post, always find you writing the same again again for all of us. Everyday you do so hard efforts. It might take may be a week to you create this small but effective resource but I believe it would reduce your work load and time remarkably. Dear Kim I really, new to use the polite words in English if any one of my words hurts you please forgive me for that.
Thank you for your patience.
It may have taken several months to happen, but finally, Amazon is educating you – IENs- and the public about the Interactive Content (videos and hyperlinks) in Kindle Print Replicas!
It was when I checked -in on the reviews on Amazon, today, that I saw this note educating the public about Kindle Interactive Editions.
What is says is that CELBANPrep Print Replicas contain interactive content (videos and links) that are only supported (viewed and accessed) on certain devices; and that other devices will receive the Print Replica without the interactivity. Meaning: CELBANPrep does contain videos and hyperlinks but they might not be accessible to some people depending on the device they are using!
It is what I have been saying, but finally Amazon is educating the public as well!
How did this come to be?
Why is it that Amazon now has this disclaimer educating the public?
Amazon received feedback about the struggles CELBANPrep users experienced!!!
