Prepare for the CELBAN in Less Time: Find out how!

Prepare for the CELBAN in Less Time

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!

I was thinking why not to create a little grammar resource for CELBAN writings?

Dear Kim I was thinking why not create a little grammar resource for CELBAN writings
Dear Kim,                                                                                                  
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.

Amazon received feedback about the struggles CELBANPrep users experienced!!!

Amazon received feedback about the struggles CELBANPrep users experienced!!!Dear Friend,

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.

Kindle Interactive Edition and CELBANPrep

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?

If you don’t Speak Up, the voices of those who have slandered CELBANPrep will be heard over YOUR Silence!

If You Don't Speak Up the voices of those who Slander CELBANPrep will be heard over your silence Dear Kim

If you have been following on Facebook or on Dear Kim you know that controversy has arisen. People have been making all kinds of claims, publicly, about CELBANPrep. But you know different.

  • If you have taken CELBANPrep: then, you know what others do not know.
  • If you have had a Writing Assessment, had your writing assignments reviewed by me or my Writing Coach: then, you know what others do not.
  • If you have met me or attended the Speaking Conference Calls or had a One-on-One Consultation: then, you know what others do not.
  • If you worked with one of my Speaking Mentors: then, you know what others do not.
  • If you attended a 7 Things You MUST Know to Pass the CELBAN, or CELBAN Trap live presentation: then, you know what others do not know.
  • If you have purchased CELBANPrep 2018/2020; then, you know what others do not know.

Knowing what you know, you know that claims that are being made are unfounded.

What has Happened to Civility? 

Dear Kim CELBAN - What has happened to civilityThis summer has been challenging.

Sure, I have also told me:

But, this whole process got me questioning:

  • Why am I doing this?
  • Why am I dedicating time, talent and energy I could be pouring into something else?
  • Why do I spend so much time on CELBANPrep when I can be working on my 5 novels, working on my new business, teaching people who appreciate what I am doing?
  • Why do I transform CELBANPrep for Amazon when I can actually be doing something where I am paid what I am worth?

It causes me to wonder:

  • What has happened to our civility?

Dear Kim, Please accept my  humble  apologies for my negative comment. I am deeply saddened by mistake

Dear CELBAN Kim, Please accept my humble apologies for my negative comment.Some time ago I received this review on Amazon.

Amazon P

With CELBANPrep Listening and Reading Complete, available in 100 nations through Amazon, there are two pieces required: the Kindle Print Replica E-book and a membership at to access the downloadable printables.

I was curious. Other negative reviews on Amazon have been clear: the person was not able to access the videos.  But Pranshant had no support to his claim. He simply claimed that it is a scam.

Going through my records, I found his e-mail address and sent the following very strongly worded message. Knowing that Prashant had my e-mail address and instead of contacting me directly to sort out what was happening he made this claim publicly evoked a very strong boundary.

Kim, I realized, You are NOT Fake!

CELBAN Kim, I realized, You are NOT FAKE!Dear Friends,

I just got off the phone with a wonderful IEN who has been having trouble accessing information for CELBANPrep Listening Complete.  She had:

  1. Purchased her Kindle Print Replica from Amazon, and
  2. Received her membership on to access the test and answer booklets.

So I wrote her a message to check-in and see how things were going.

Hello Kim,

To be honest , it was terrible, such waist of money. There was hot any useful information or preparation, only youtobe which was not working , and explanation of people  expiriences how they pass or not exam. Realy, not offence but you take mone for nothing.
