Our CELPIP classes are modular which means you can complete the modules in whichever order is most convenient. To keep lessons interesting, we follow an integrated skills approach, which means that each session is divided between the different skills. Each module contains expert CELPIP coaching, tips, strategies, practice, and feedback. We have developed our own CELPIP writing lessons, which include writing samples, techniques, model structures, and plenty of expert CELPIP writing feedback.

Each module also has a CELPIP vocabulary section which we practice together using the latest quiz game apps on smart phones and using our interactive whiteboards.

Is CELPIP easier than IELTS?

Trying to decide between IELTS and CELPIP? It really depends on the student, and it is best to call the centre and arrange a free consultation with an expert tutor to see which exam is best for you. Looking at the results, IELTS certainly seems easier in the speaking section whereas students often get better results in the CELPIP reading and listening sections. CELPIP is probably easier for students with spelling difficulties as there is a spellcheck available for the writing section and no need to spell for the CELPIP listening test. However, marking of the CELPIP writing test appears to be quite strict compared to IELTS.
