CELPIP Questions and Answers

The nature of the CELPIP questions is ‘practical’. In other words, the sources of the CELPIP questions shall be from the routine (day-to-day) encounters. Students shall never face any difficulties in understanding the topics because they are familiar.

While IELTS and PTE bombard the test-takers with questions that are difficult to understand (as they are kinds of academic or complex in nature), CELPIP goes on with ease. The candidates won’t see the topis as aliens.

A simple example can get you an idea:

  • The most complex IELTS listening question for section/recording 4 could go like a conversation between three people who are discussing a thesis submission. The thesis is about an academic topic ranging from history to chemistry and even civics.
  • The most complex CELPIP listening question could be about a discussion on the healthcare system in general.

The test-takers would surely relate to all CELPIP questions from listening, reading, writing, and speaking. As said earlier, the topis won’t be an alien to the candidates. Common topics for CELPIP include problem-solving, suggestions, complaints, inquiries, and the like from various settings such as workplaces, homes, societies, public places, etc.

Similarly, CELPIP answers, too, aren’t as complicated as one finds in PTE and IELTS. CELPIP questions and answers are easy to understand and follow. They come from day-to-day events and incidents. If a standard high-band sample of writing or speaking tasks baffles the test-takers in IELTS and PTE, they would be happy to see standard high-scoring sample answers of CELPIP.
