Tips to help you achieve a perfect score

CELPIP Listening Skills

The part where CELPIP's victory over IELTS is in the listening test. The reason is that CELPIP only has 38 multiple-choice questions, and IELTS has not only multiple-choice questions, but also fill-in-the-blank questions. If the candidate lacks spelling skills, IELTS listening will be a fatal blow. On the contrary, CELPIP can help you cover up your weaknesses, and these skills will definitely improve your scores in the short term. Our instructors will teach you techniques to understand questions quickly, which will immediately improve your score by 1-2 points. Don’t underestimate these 1-2 points, because even just one point will be enough to decide whether your immigration is successful or not.

CELPIP Speaking Skills

There are usually two types of candidates in the examination room of the oral test: one type of student is usually able to answer in English, but when they see the examiner, their tongues become knotted, they are hesitant, and their brains are blank. Another type of test taker is lack of vocabulary, poor sentence structure, and the spoken content is lackluster. In the end, this is the section that most candidates struggle with, ultimately costing you the exam. Let CELPIP Test Prep help you prepare so you can succeed with flying colors!

CELPIP Writing Skills

There are two main parts of CELPIP's writing-the first part is to write an email, and the second part is to respond to the questionnaire- choosing one of the two options as your argument and discuss it. First of all, the word count for the two IELTS essays are 150 and 250 words respectively. The number of words required for each question in CELPIP’s writing is 150-200 words, which is only equivalent to writing two IELTS essays. For some candidates who often complain about not being able to finish IELTS composition, CELPIP is undoubtedly the best choice. In addition, because the whole process of CELPIP is a computer-based test, the writing part will provide spell check and word count. This is a great advantage for time control.
