ABOUT CELPIP 

CELPIP (Canadian English Proficiency Index Program) assesses your ability to use English in everyday situations. It is not a test of business English or academic English, this test, accurately, and precisely assesses a test taker’s English speaking, listening and writing skills in every situation in many ways, such as communicating with co-workers and superiors in the workplace, interacting with friends and interpreting and responding to written materials. This is one of the best ways to prepare and use English as much as possible in your daily life. Stanberry Educity trains the students using the latest methodologies. Our trainers assist the students in solving questions and introduce useful ideas and theories to the students. We brainstorm the students on a variety of activities. At Stanberry, we expose the students to a variety of tasks to enhance their comprehensive abilities and skills.
Stanberry Educity offers sample questions and interactive skill-building programs to help the students improve their communication skills, be it listening, reading, speaking, or writing.

SCORING

Each component of the test (listening, reading, writing and speaking) will be given a CELPIP Level. Below is a chart of each CELPIP-General level and its corresponding description.
