Testimonials Feedback on Speaking Class:

“I have been able to improve a lot on my speaking preparation for my CELPIP test. Kristy has empowered me to take a step toward and be more attentive and well prepare. I wish this class can be longer to learn more as the time seems to be short to cover with the 8 task that CELIP test requires. I am very happy with my teacher. She took extra time to explain every possible detailed to succeed on my next test.” – Cecilia

Frequently Asked Questions

What can we help you with?
CELPIP
I had taken other English language proficiency before, and CELPIP was more relatable to me. All of the questions were situations I was familiar with from daily life, and were like conversations I had experienced personally.
- Chrisna D., CELPIP Test Taker
CELPIP
When I took CELPIP, I found it was like speaking English in real life. You speak every day with your boss and with your friends, and the CELPIP Test represents those every-day, real-life language situations.
