CELPIP Speaking Difficult Situation Help Aunt or Friends

CELPIP Speaking Difficult Situation – Help Aunt or Camping with Friends

Your aunt is moving this weekend and you offered to help her. You receive a message from your friends inviting you to go camping with them this weekend. You need to call your friends or your aunt and explain why you can’t make it. What do you say?

Preparation: 60 seconds Speaking: 60 seconds


In this question, you should just choose the option you think is easier. Don’t worry about which option is morally better. The CELPIP exam is not testing you on your morality. It’s testing you on your English!

If you choose to talk to your aunt, you should say,
“Hi Aunt Barbara”
If you choose to talk to your friends, you should say,
“Hey guys”

Remember, speaking naturally is more important than using impressive words and phrases. Just try to relax and speak in a calm tone of voice. In this question, your tone of voice should be apologetic because you’re backing out of a commitment.

CELPIP Speaking Difficult Situation – Help Aunt or Camping with Friends

Hi Aunt Barbara,

It’s Jack calling here. I just got a text from my friends inviting me to go camping with them. I know I promised to help you move this weekend, but this will be my last chance to go camping this year. I know you need help and I wouldn’t just leave you without any help! That’s why I’ve asked John to take my place. He is free all day and would be happy to help you! Actually, he’ll probably be even more helpful than me because he is a lot stronger. I know you have some old-fashioned furniture that is really heavy. I think John will be able to handle that no problem! Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that, and I hope you understand. I look forward to seeing you sometime soon!
