Dear Internationally Educated Health Professional,

Do you know why you are not getting the required scores for your English exams? 

If you are like any of the other IENs that have contacted me over the years, you probably don't. If you check out CELBANvsIELTS.ca you will read email after e-mail from Internationally Educated Health Professionals just like you: who kept struggling to get required scores not knowing what their weaknesses were or how to turn them into strengths. I always sat, "If what you are doing is not getting you where you want to go: change what you are doing!"

That is the amazing thing about the CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials. It teaches you how to change what you are doing so you get to where you want to go!

After teaching IENs CELBANPrep Writing Level One for several years, it became apparent that many IENs make the same general mistakes when it comes to writing. They are: Nouns and Articles, Verbs and VerbalsAgreement Errors, and Advanced Punctuations. But noone knew how to identify these weaknesses in their writing or how to turn them into strengths! 

The CELBAN or IELTS Grammar Essentials Series was created for this exact reason! As an intensive supplementary resources there are four individual modules that assist you as an individual  in increasing your scores not only in writing but also speaking and reading portions of English proficiency exams! And it works! 

They are so efficient, these resources can be used by anyone preparing for any English exam! Seriously! 

By focusing on weaknesses, and turning them into strengths, you can increase your mastery and efficiency with the English language! Start today!  

NOTE: The CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials Series is meant to be a companion resource to CELBANPrep Writing Level One. It can be taken before CELBANPrep Writing or at the same time as you complete Level One with a trained professional who can help you identify your weaknesses/errors. (There are tips in the textbooks for them to know how to support you in getting the required scores.) 

All the best,


P.S. All of the examples come from Internationally Educated Health Professionals just like you!!! And, remember to check out www.CELBANvsIELTS.ca! You will be glad you did!

The CELBAN or IELTS: Grammar Essentials Series

Nouns & Articles

One of the most common errors Internationally Educated Professionals make is the incorrect use of the articles:
  • a,
  • an,
  • the, and the
  • zero article. 
Learn how to use articles correctly! But first review common and proper nouns, specific and non-specific nouns, countable and non-count nouns.

Verbs & Verbals

While learning about verbs at the beginning and intermediate level is relatively easy, at the advanced level IEPs must consider verbals and verb chains to turn weaknesses with verbs into strengths. 

This module covers:
  • verbs as adjectives,
  • verbs as nouns (gerunds),
  • verb chains, and 
  • idioms. 

Agreement Errors

Most IEPs understand the basics when it comes to grammar, punctuation and spelling. Yet one of the most common errors at the advanced level is agreement errors. Beyond simple number and person errors, agreement errors can be influenced by the:
  • subject,
  • verb, or
  • pronoun. 

Advanced Punctuation

Sentence structure and advanced punctuation errors are also common to Internationally Educated Health Professionals. The most common errors include:
  • dependent clauses,
  • fused sentences,
  • over use of conjunctions, 
  • missing punctuation with coordinating conjunctions,
  • comma splits,
  • incorrect use of colons and semi-colons.
