I passed my CELBAN exam the first time_ CELBAN vs IELTSHi Kim,

First of all, thank you for letting me know about the updates or recent changes with Celban Prep website. I would like to apologize for not being able to reply from your email since I’ve been so busy at work and my exams. I’ve been meaning to send a response but everytime I wanted to construct my testimonial regarding your books, something always comes up.
I’d like you to know that I passed my Celban exam the first time that I took it last year June 12 2018 after using your Listening & Reading bundle, speaking and writing level 1 study guide. I only had a month and 2 weeks prior to the exam. I spent 1 month and 2 weeks preparing for celban and I could say your study guide/books really helped me alot.
It was like you are giving us, your readers, the basic information or backbone of the said exam.
Although  I received other sample reviewers (very basic, like the one from the library), I wasn’t contented with it since it wont teach me the how to start from scratch.

You gave me the assistance, confidence and emotional support ... I was able to pass CELBAN on my first tryHi Kim,
This is A. You may not remember me but I subscribe to your CELBANPrep course 2 years ago. Now, I am very happy to inform you that I will be finishing my 10 courses in the BCN program for RNs this March. Yes! I am finally done with school and I will be able to apply for a GN position and later on RN! This is all thanks to you who made this possible. You helped me prepare for CELBAN. And during that time, I was losing hope because I was frustrated that I was not able to pass the IELTS for the 3rd time. But, thank God that I did not give up. You gave me the assistance, confidence and emotional support during that time. And because of that I was able to pass CELBAN on my first try. I will never forget it. Thank you so much! May God continue to shower you with more blessings! A

*!!I PASSeD MY CELBAN!!! I’m so happy I subscribed to CELBANPrep=)

I PASSeD MY CELBAN!!! I'm so happy I subscribed to CELBANPrepHi Kim,

I sent an email a week or so ago regarding my result… At first, I was so depressed and sad regarding my result: Speaking- 8, Listening -10, Reading 9 and Writing -6. I was very disappointed  because I spent most hours practicing the Writing part compare to the other components of CELBAN. It was a huge challenge for me and I was about to give up. My fiancée encouraged me not to loss hope and ask me about how I did in my Writing. I said,” I thought I was able to pass and failed on my Speaking because I was so nervous”. From there, we decided to have my Writing re scored and rechecked again. My Writing score was changed from 6-7. I PASSeD MY CELBAN!!! And you are one of the reasons why I made it. Thank you so much Kim! Godbless you always.

P.S: I’m still waiting for the collocation book to come out.hehehe. I’m so happy I subscribed to CELBANPrep=). Also, Happy Mother’s Day in advance.You are such a wonderful person Kim ^_______^Thanks,

2G*!!♥ I just got my CELBAN test result today, I PASSED!

♥ I just got my CELBAN test result today, I PASSED!
Hello Kim,
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.

1G*!! After failing the IELTS 7 x, I joined [CELBANPrep] in the month of FEB, took the CELBAN MAY: I passed!!!

After failing the IELTS 7x, I joined CELBANPrep in the month of FEB, took the CELBAN MAY 3 I passed

Kim, I was lost when I decided to finally take CELBAN. Prior to that I took IELTS more than 5x when I was in the Philippines and 2x here in Canada. I was devastated when I didn’t got my desired scores in IELTS. I had hesitations in applying for CELBAN because: first) it don’t know anything about it, second) i don’t know people or institution who conduct reviews and lastly) another months of preparation. Luckily, I saw CelbanPrep thru google… I joined in the month of FEB and took the CELBAN MAY 3. I passed! Continue reading

!!* I took CELBAN, first attempt I failed….I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing

I took CELBAN, first attempt I failed....I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing

Good afternoon Kim,
My name is R, I am one of your student… I would like to thank you for all your guidance and support in my writing. Though, I felt so bad whenever I check my writing [CELBANPrep Writing Level One] there were lots colours for corrections- but for this corrections I improved and felt confident in doing an incident report [CELBANPrep Writing Level Two]. Honestly, I took IELTS exam 3 times, unfortunately I didn’t meet the score that they were requiring me to reach. Then I took Celban, first attempt I failed. Somehow, you gave me a chance … from that point I practice and practice until I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing. Luckily, I got a schedule … for CELBAN exam … and I pass the exam. Kim, you put a mark in achieving my nursing career here in Canada.

Thank you,

!! After 3x failing the IELTS, I finally passed my CELBAN exam in the first attempt!

After 3x failing the IELTS, I finally passed my CELBAN exam in the first attempt!Dear Kim

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
