CELPIP is the most recognized official and authoritative language test for the purpose of immigration and citizenship in Canada. The test mainly focuses on English language applications in daily life and the test is designed in the context of Canadian culture. CELPIP is relatively easy and less time-consuming to prepare in comparison with IELTS General, therefore it is becoming a more and more popular option for many immigration applicants nowadays.

There are two types of CELPIP exam: CELPIP General and GELPIP LS. The “General” type is for Canadian immigration applications and real estate broker licensing. The test consists of four parts in the sequence of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

CELPIP LS is specifically designed to apply for Canadian citizenship, and the test only has listening and speaking two parts.

CELPIP is a computer-based exam and all the listening and reading questions are multiple choice questions. Since the test content is closely related to daily life, the requirements for vocabulary and grammar are relatively easy, and in the writing part, the automatic spelling correction function on computer becomes a great advantage for many candidates. Because the entire CELPIP exam is conducted on computers, test results are delivered within 8-12 business days, which is much faster than IELTS.
