Candidates who are taking either test (General for Permanent Residency or LS for citizenship) are eligible to apply for the modules they wish to focus on and will receive a workbook for the skill module(s) selected:

  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing

CELPIP Private one-on-one lessons are also available. Each module costs $250 (all included + book).
