Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program

The CELPIP preparation course is designed to prepare candidates to take the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) test.  The CELPIP-General Test is designated by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) as proof of English language proficiency for those applying for permanent resident status in Canada. 

As a student in Dawn English Academy, you will learn a variety of language skills and strategies for succeeding in the writing module. Candidates in this preparation course will become familiar with the test format and performance expectations, learn about CELPIP question types and how to respond to them, improve their vocabulary, writing skills, and become confident CELPIP test takers. 

Our CELPIP course is taught by qualified British teachers who have years of experience helping students pass these English proficiency tests for Canadian immigration. The CELPIP-General Test has four components—Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking and is only applicable for visas to Canada. The total test time for the CELPIP-General Test is about 3 hours. 

The CELPIP Test is fully computer delivered, providing test takers the opportunity to complete all test components in one sitting with no additional appointments, interviews, or test sittings required. CELPIP Test Takers use a computer mouse and keyboard to complete Reading and Writing components of the test, and a computer microphone and headset to complete the Listening and Speaking components. Computerized tests offer test takers a quick and reliable testing experience.
