The Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program [CELPIP] tests are Canada’s general English language tests. CELPIP Test results can be used for the purpose of Canadian immigration and professional designation.
The Test is specifically designed for the purposes of assessing a test taker’s abilities in the English language in different everyday situations.
Computer-delivered and in only one sitting, the CELPIP is generally looked upon as a comparatively simpler English test as it involves easy-to-understand English and vocabulary that is based on everyday situations that most of us might encounter in our daily lives. Situations such as communicating in the workplace, interpreting written materials, understanding the news, and interaction with friends.
