The Trapped IEN: I already took the celban twice and I am always short on the speaking component.

Dear Kim,
Hello! My name is J, I already took the celban twice and I am always short on the speaking component. I read your website and I am interested to review, but I am quite confused what to pick.  I cannot afford a 3 month review.  If you could recommend a class for me, I just want to do speaking — a one on one if possible.
for the Celban Conference calls is this one on one? 99$ for 2 hours?
How about this class that you posted on your website? the CELBANPrep Speaking Class does this have a one on one assessment and is this just for one month (since it states 4 weeks?), and how much does it cost?
Thank you,
J

► I feel like I am wasting my time … just waiting for the CELBAN news

NOTE: Although this message was written during the changes in national administrator of the CELBAN it may still apply, if you are waiting for an available seat for the exam.
Dear Kim,
My name is Z and I’m from Manitoba.  I have been waiting desperately for the news of the upcoming CELBAN schedules since CELAS centre no longer exist. I have been informed before by CELAS of my exam dates last summer but I guess it didnt push through because of the recent changes and the money that I paid didn’t reflect in my bank statement so I guess no.
I am writing to you because I need to enroll in writing classes or writing course you got there.  I really dont know what to take. All I want is someone to check in my work specifically in writing because I cant seem to get it right.  I have taken the iCelban exam at the MNU twice and my results with listening are 10 and reading are 8,9 but with writing I can’t seem to get it even at 7. I always get 6 on both the iCelban exams.  I didnt have the chance to take the speaking test because I don’t a a specific date yet.
So, I need your help in my writing.  I need someone to check what I have done and give me feedbacks  Also money wise it’s a little expensive hope you have some discount ? 😉
Also, I’m working full-time but on shifts. I work two weeks days, two weeks nights and alternate after that.  I am really determined to learn.  I feel like I am wasting my time which I am just waiting for the CELBAN news to come up.  So, here I am thinking on enrolling in writing course.  Will there be an coach to give me feedbacks? will I be able to see my work?  How is it gonna work?  ( too many question) tsk…
Hope to hear from you soon. Good day! Z

Dear Kim,
Thank you for the inspiring me  to pursue my career here in Canada.I did say thank you for you to my friend  who told CELBAN thing. It is by me on how to face and pass the challenge for Nursing English requirements. Especially now I am a 7 months postpartum Mom and having a hard time in self- studying because my baby needs me all the time. And it is only me taking care of her while my husband working.
I have a question, when will I start to take the CELBAN PREP ONLINE? Rightnow till Dec 2014 the exam dates are full across Canada. That’s makes me think in a hurry and worried because my practice in Nursing it’s on standby .By next year I’m 3 years not working as a Nurse. And which will I purchase the CELBAN PREP bundle? or will I start first the basic prep one by one? Please advise me Kim.

1G How can I practice speaking with [CELBANPrep]?

Dear KIM
I don’t know how to leave the comment ,, so I choose to leave here ;) sorry;
I am an one of the desperate international nurses who need celban score.
I tried IELTS couple of times, but my writing was never getting better.. and I am a terrible writer in my first language as well.
I was almost frustrated,,but I found hope in the CELBAN..
And I was one comment about a nurse who took ielts 7times(?) and success CELBAN..
I am living in Toronto where has no celban prep school.
so I was about to apply in Vancouver,, but I have to spend too much extra money for accommodation…etc..However I thought that plan because of speaking…
To practice speaking , I thought I have meet people..
but I guess this site has only online class, don’t you?
How can I practice speaking with this ? I am an Asian,, I am very weak at speaking and writing. I couldn’t find any solution yet..
If you can help and I don’t have to go to Vancouver, I would be very happy TT
I am planning to take test either Oct or Nov..
I prefer Oct than Nov though..
If I study with you, what month is appropriate ?
Please reply me. I am willing to do everything I can do to get a score.
Thank you, Jane
