The CELPIP Tests can help you gauge the English language abilities of your applicants, students, or members to communicate with co-workers, understand directions from superiors, and interpret and respond to written materials.
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.

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.
