What is CELPIP?


CELPIP Coourse

CELPIP stands for The Canadian English Language Proximity Index Program. It’s a language assessment tool used by Canada to assess an individual’s ability to read, write, speak and listen in English. Canada requires this test be completed and that the individual pass the test before being considered for permanent residency within Canada.

What’s on the CELPIP test?

The test is primarily given on a computer and takes about three hours to complete. The test is comprised of four components.

  • CELPIP Listening

The first portion of the exam is the listening section. The test-taker will listen to passages and then have to answer questions about those passages. It’s broken down into sections of listening such as problem-solving, daily life conversation, listening for information, listening to a news item, listening to a discussion and listening to viewpoints. The test-taker will have about 30 minutes to complete this portion of the test.

  • CELPIP Reading

The second section involves reading passages and answering questions about those passages. There are a few different sections, such as: reading correspondence, reading to apply a diagram, reading for information and reading for viewpoints. This portion of the test takes about 60 minutes.

  • CELPIP Writing

CELPIP Writing. The third section is the writing section. During this portion of the test, the test-taker must respond to questions with a written answer. It comprises of only two tasks: writing an email and responding to survey questions. This portion of the test takes about 55 minutes.

  • CELPIP Speaking

The fourth and final section of the test is the speaking session. During this portion of the test, the test-taker will receive on-screen prompts. After you receive the prompt, you must reply. There are quite a few sections to this part of the test, but it only takes about 20 minutes to complete. Some topics on this portion are: giving advice, talking about a personal experience, describing a scene, making predictions, comparing and persuading, dealing with a difficult situation, expressing opinions and describing an unusual situation.
After completing the fourth section, the test-taker is finished and just has to wait for results.
