CELPIP Speaking Preparation
When you start your CELPIP Preparation for the Speaking section of the test, pay careful attention to the task heading.
The test is checking to see that you can adjust your vocabulary and tone when addressing someone you know or someone in a position of authority; therefore, it is important to identify who you are speaking to before you get started on your response.
The test is also checking your ability to speak about tangible situations and abstract situations.
The difference between task 1 and task 8 is that in task 1 you describe a picture (tangible), whereas in task 8, you describe an unusual situation (abstract).
“…I got my 9, and I’ve completed my PR application!… Thank you Angela…”

I’m Angela, and I’m the author of this website. I’ve been teaching English for a very long time, and I’ve been working with CELPIP students for more than twenty years.
I tend to specialize on the writing and speaking sections, but I’ve been known to work with reading and listening problems too.
I’d gladly help you prepare for your
test. Just give me a call or send me a text, and we’ll set up a time to chat over zoom for ten minutes. I always like to meet prospective students and get an idea of their language level before getting started with classes.
It’s a very informal chat – just a chance for us to meet in person.
You can text or call me at:
The same number works for WhatsApp!
I’ll happily give you feedback on your speaking, please use
our speaking correction service.
I hope you find my website useful as you prepare for your CELPIP Test, and even if you don’t call me, I wish you the very best of luck!
