What is CELPIP?

Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is a general English Language Proficiency Test. CELPIP general has been officially designated for permanent residency applications in Canada. Some professional designations might also accept the results of this test. Each test consists of four sections – listening, reading, writing and speaking and is computer delivered at a test centre.

CELPIP LS stands for the listening and speaking section only. It is used for citizenship application and some professional designations. CELPIP LS is not enough for permanent residency applications. For that, one has to take a full CELPIP general test.

CELPIP is a Canadian test which was designed and originated in BC, Canada. Therefore, expect a wide range of Canadian accents and phraseology there. Canadian English is a mix of dialects, primarily rotating around British spelling and American pronunciation. It’s fully computer-delivered and you are expected to complete it in one sitting.

What is the difference between CELPIP General and CELPIP LS

Before you sign up for the test, please make sure that you are taking the right module. CELPIP General consists of all four parts – listening, reading, writing and speaking, while CELPIP LS only tests listening and speaking parts. CELPIP General is accepted for the purposes of immigration and professional accreditation by some organizations, while CELPIP LS is usually required as a proof of language proficiency for citizenship purposes.

It can be taken in Singapore, UAE, USA, Philippines, India, and China, just to name a few, but it is quickly spreading to other geographical locations.

Why CELPIP?

Unlike IELTS or TOEFL, CELPIP is a Canadian test, designed by Canadians for prospective entry to Canada. English is such a wide-spread language that it is only natural that it has acquired lots of dialects, differences in vocabulary, pronunciation, and spelling. That means that if you’re searching entry to Canada or have already spent some time living in Canada, it makes a lot of sense to give your preference to CELPIP. You face a less risk to run into Australian or New Zealand pronunciation or vocabulary which is much more difficult to understand if you have never had experience with it before.

CELPIP is a fully computer-delivered test which is becoming increasingly easier for many applicants as compared to pencil-to-paper tests.
