All You Need for the CELPIP PDF
All You Need for the CELPIP by author Annabelle Caruana. A comprehensive overview of the CELPIP-Canada’s leading language test.
This guide is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the CELPIP test, allowing students to prepare in a highly effective and efficient manner. The CELPIP, or Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program, is becoming increasingly popular for permanent residency and academic applications. The need for more study materials for this test came from my students themselves, as I first began teaching English.
Throughout this guide, you will be walked through each part of the exam, from the format of the test to sample questions. I have provided both study strategies and test performance strategies to give you a broad overview of the entire test, without focusing on detailed grammar points or theory. After assessing your own English level and taking a sample test, you can then study independently or with a teacher who can help you break down different theory and provide valuable feedback.
I particularly enjoy teaching CELPIP preparation as it is a uniquely Canadian English exam, developed by my own alma mater, the University of British Columbia. The topics are based on Canadian culture, which makes it even more interesting. I am delighted to offer this book to anyone looking to achieve a great score on the CELPIP. Remember, studying is a chance to improve your overall English ability, so instead of viewing it as just studying for the test, it is useful to study from the perspective of enriching your language capabilities for life overall.
The key to achieving a good mark, particularly with the active skills of speaking and writing, is becoming comfortable with the formula and learning different lexical bundles. This way, during the test you will be well-prepared and able to focus on the content of the question. I understand that this test is important for the futures of my students, so I wish you good luck and happy studying.
