How are you? I am really happy to read the content of your blog. It inspired me so much to fulfill my goals and dreams here in Canada.
Sometimes, I feel really discouraged. Life here in Canada is very different from the Philippines which I came from. It is very lonely here, especially now that it’s winter. It’s only my fourth month here, but I still don’t have any friends. My relatives here are not the same as my relatives back home. Preparing for the exam is very challenging for me here without the support I usually have back home.
Thank you so much kim.
I am fully aware that i am not making my assignments and wasn’t able to do everything about my CELBANprep, I’ve been through a lot this month not physically but emotionally. I feel hopeless and no energy of doing something to achieve my dreams and goals in life.In addition, my papers that we’re sent to the immigration was delivered back to us due to lack of signatures and additional documents are needed. To be honest, I was devastated and very down knowing that it’s going to be a long wait again. I want to take my exams and go back to school but i just cant :(..Being an International Student cost a lot of money. I am really hoping to go to school next year but i cant:(. i have no one to talk about this. I am really sorry for bothering you Kim.
Thank you so much for sending another assignment, It’s been a long time that I did not respond or submit any assignment. There are times that I just only read but I don’t have time to do it. As I’ve said before, I’m the breadwinner, my husband is studying, we just bought a new house and also I decided to study to improve my confidence and I’m currently studying Communication for health professional. I worked during the night and go to school 1-5:30pm monday to friday. I only slept 2-3 hours a day because I’m not driving my work and school was far from my place approximately One hour drive. So i need to leave the house earlier. Sometimes, I feel very exhausted and stressed with my life. My schedule is overwhelming but I need to work with it. Hoping that someday all this sacrifices pays off. My schooling will be done on November 29. After that I can focus on my celban review. My schedule with the exam on celban maybe December or January? There is no specific schedule yet, Since I rescheduled my exam from september but CELaS said they dont have schesule yet. G
I just got my CELBAN test result today, I PASSED! S-10, R-10, L-10, W-8. I am really proud of my scores and I have you to thank for that.
I was confident when I took the test because I know that CELBANPrep prepared me for it. I have one thing to share to you so that you can also remind your students about it.
I was excited about the writing task because I know that with all the practices that I did with CELBANPrep, nothing can go wrong. Well, I was wrong!! I was already home when I started to think about the exam, I was happy with my performance until I remembered that I did not sign the incident report! Another thing, I wrote 4 paragraphs instead of 3! The instruction was to write an incident report with 1-3 paragraphs. This haunted me for a week!
What I’m trying to point out here is that students should have presence of mind during the test.
It was good that I learned from you how to mind map so that information is organized [from CELBANPrep Writing Level One]. I also kept in mind your reminder to be conscious of the tenses [CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials]. I think this probably is the reason why I got an 8 in writing.
Thank you Kim and more power! Keep on empowering IENs to achieve our goals.
I would be humbled and honoured if you share this with others on the forum, however I do not want to take all the credit as you have moulded me and taught me very well every step of the way. You uplift me, motivate me and bring out the best in me. I thank you for your guidance, patience and most of all for just being you. You have never made me feel that I should under estimate myself, but instead you encourage one all the way. I so wish I had known you long before in time, but god knows best why our paths have crossed now.
(This assignment was created by someone taking both CELBANPrep Writing and CELBANPrep Speaking. To practice for the Compare and Contrast task, she chose to do a compare and contrast writing assignment. She did so well I wanted to share it with you.)
I passed. Can you believe it? After three times failing the IELTS exam, I finally passed my CELBAN exam in the first attempt. I do not know how can I appreciate you. In fact, your great teaching method made my future bright in this country. Nobody knows my feeling now, it is like a flying. Finally my dreams come true with the help of God, your great teaching and my stamina.
My dearest friend.
It was six months ago that I did not have any hope to pursue my job in this country. As I had passed the CRNE exam before, the only barrier for me to become a registered nurse was the language proficiency exam; however, IELTS totally depleted my energy and I decided to quit my dream. My husband encouraged me to join the CELBANPrep course, but I had no trust to your course. Finally I joined the CELBANPrep course without any hope, I told my husband,” I attend this course because of you, but I know that it is useless!” I feel confident in stating that joining CELBANPrep course was the best gift that I have got in my life. When I was under a huge pressure,and I felt hopeless and helpless in this country, you act like a lighthouse to show me a right way in the stormy sea. You are in my heart and my mind for ever.
God Bless You
Dear Miss Kim
…the only thing missing to complete my requirements is the english test. thats my priority now to take the english test, im scared coz my english is not good enough, especially my diction, i need to study and practice, i dont know which test will i take. thats my concern for now. – H
It’s nice knowing some people having concern in building up dreams and success of one’s life. Though we don’t know each other physically but still the inner connection is there. so blessed to have you as one of my angel in reaching those dreams. All is well Kim, still overwhelmed with the recent blessings I got from Him and that’s passing the RPN exam, God works really in a very mysterious way.He knows my passion ever since, helping the needy that needs medical attention. However Kim, still can’t do registration because I still have outstanding requirements to comply on which are the language proficiency in English and having Permanent residency.i came to Canada under live in caregiver program and working already for 20 months,patiently waiting for another four more months so I can apply already my open permit along with the permanent residency. Thank you Lord!. By the way Kim, still I didn’t take any English Exam because I’m too afraid I’m might get failed. I know in myself that it’s one of my Waterloo,but,deeply in my heart it’s not yet too late for everything. I’m willing and very much interested to learn whatever it takes along the way. I’m trying to browse every site as much as I can that will surely help me and will not cost me at all and this is it,I found you!!. thank you in advance Kim for spending time with me. May God bless you abundantly!–S
