CELPIP GENERAL

 CELPIP means Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program, and this exam has been accepted as the national exam of Canadian English in context. The exam results are accepted for immigration purposes and they are also accepted by several educational institutions. Our CLBEnglish program incorporates CELPIP supplementary material into the curriculum to familiarize students with the exam.

It is important to note that our courses use authentic CELPIP material, which is non-level based; the level of each student is determined by their result on the exam.

  • LENGTH: There is typically no exact duration for these courses, but in general students demonstrate an increase of 1 or 2 levels after completion of a 16-week course, or one semester.
  • LEVEL REQUIRED: CLB 4 is required to enter a CELPIP course. Students write an entrance exam to determine their level.
