Good afternoon Kim, My name is R, I am one of your student in dear kim. 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 there were lots colours for corrections- but for this corrections I improved and felt confident in doing an incident report. 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 to open my account in your website and from that point I practice and practice until I got the confidence to overcome my fear of writing. Luckily, I got a schedule last Sept…,2013 for CELBAN exam … and I pass the exam. Kim, you put a mark in achieving my nursing career here in Canada. Thank you, R

I got the results today! Omg!
I can’t thank you enough!
Words aren’t enough to express how thankful I am for your help, guidance and encouragement. I wouldn’t deny that I was already thinking of other options in case I didn’t pass. I just don’t want to be so depressed and wanted to have a new course/way to look forward to if failed on this. And I did not fail, because of you. I mentionedyourCelbanprep to my friends but they are still undecided on what they wanna do. I guess it’s just a matter of what your dreams are but just like what they always say, ‘Dreams don’t work unless you do‘. We need to moveourhiney off. Haha.Thank you so much Kim. :)Always,
Good day, and more power to an angel like you who sincerely support IENs like me. On the other hand, I did accessed your CELBANprep to have a tour on that link and its amazing, and to satisfy my interest with your online CELBAN material, I purchased the CELBANprep reading booklet 1, and I find it really interesting, giving me high hopes that I am in the right track towards my goal. I am planning to buy more of your online materials and I am taking it one step at a time. Again, thank you for being a great motivator and inspiration for IENs who are pursuing their dreams. M
Yesterday I came back from India….reached home at 12.30 am and first thing I did was….checked my mail box…got my CELBAN result letter…..my heart was beating very fast,my husband opened the letter for me and the result was WOW…….L-10/10, R- 10/10, S- 9/10, W- 7. I was just stunned…it was just dream come true…I called my family back in India and gave them the great news. Everybody is very happy and proud of me. I am grateful to God for his blessings and my family for their support. I am very thankful to u as without your guidance nothing was possible. Your guidance, support and trust helped me to stay positive and perform well in exam. I really appreciate your efforts for helping me in WRITING.
You are like an angle for IENs like me. Your voice is so miraculous that it always helped me to have trust in myself and do my best in that crucial time.I had a very short time with u but it was really a great experience….LOVE U…..GOD BLESS U…..

I’m doing good, thanks for thinking about me. I am a quite relieved that the exam is over, but still I’m a bit uneasy whenever I think about the outcome. I am not 100% confident that I will pass it because the listening benchmark is just so high; although I did the best I can, I am not sure if my mark could reach it. Almost all of the other examinees’ concerns were about the listening section, all rest of the test were just fine. So still, the agony of waiting is where I am currently in for the meantime. I am trying not to be so pessimistic because I know I did my best, and I think I worked quite hard to prepare for it. Thank you for the lessons that I learned from Celbanprep. Honestly, it helped me a lot on my writing and speaking, and it gave me such enlightenment about what celban exam was like. On top of that, the motivation and encouragement that you gave every now and then was really of big help; they really boosted my confidence. I’m still holding that hope that I could pass the Celban exam. And if not, I will not lose courage to try it again, because if others can make it, I know I also can if accompanied by hard work. I’ll let you know about the results maybe after 3 weeks? I hope I would be telling a good news by that time. Still keeping my fingers crossed. 🙂
Hello again! Its been months since i last communicated with you and i hope you still remember me. I also had my Celban Course Bundle subscription last year which had expired early this year. First of all, i want to say thank you for all the support you have given me despite the fact that i was not able to become an active student that time. My first experience to take the CELBAN early this year still went smooth despite my tremendous lack of self confidence and time ( as i described to you my condition before). Kim i got 8 for speaking, 10 for listening, 9 for reading…..BUT a very huge BUT only 6 for writing. The result was fine at first because i tried to console my self that i could just try LPN and not go for RN anymore for when i got my result that was the time that CLPN in our province were accepting applicants with some differences in the English assessment results. After 6 months CLPN approved me for CCA but they still want me to update my English result. That was the time that my heart shattered because first, i tried to settle for less than what i dream to become; second was that the next available spot for CELBAN is March 2014 ; third, i din’t know anymore how to approach the writing and lastly, i will have to be retested again for listening. Its just recently that i managed to forgive myself and forego of the wrong decisions that i made. From this moment , my experience made me more matured in approaching my goal. I had learned another life lesson and now i need to apply it. Kim, with humility, please recommend to me any subscription for the writing and listening with discounts if possible or anything that you think would be able to help me. Thank you very much for reading my letter. S

I am from Philippines but I had worked in Dubai, Middle East for 5 years. Since, I dream to migrate to other countries, ielts is always one of the requirements, inorder to get in. I attended almost all the ielts review center in the Philippines and I spent a lot of money but I failed for 3x. I lost my confidence. Everytime I heard an academic IELTS test I felt nervous. I don’t know what is wrong with me. I was so scared to take the test.
Moreover, I decided to migrate here in Canada but again they required me to submit IELTS test in general module. Although, I was so afraid but I don’t have choice but to try it. Fortunately, I meet the requirements.
