Best Online CELPIP Resources

Get ready for the CELPIP test with these online resources.

The CELPIP test is relatively new, but new resources for test-takers are coming online every day to help you get the best result you can.

There are a lot of good videos on YouTube, where you can learn about and practice for the CELPIP test, and also raise your general level of skill in English ahead of the test. 

In this video, Paragon Testing, the company which owns the CELPIP test, offers online lessons to help you understand the test and improve your result.

There is also a CELPIP Seminar from Paragon, with information about what skills they are testing. Watching this video will let you know what to expect the day of the test.



The best way to prepare for the CELPIP, of course, is to do practice tests. You can find these on the CELPIP website and practice them on your own time:

But the most important advice I can give is that it is important to assess your level, long before your test. Take a practice test, decide what you areas you need to improve, and start practicing well ahead of time. 

Developing language skills requires time, and it can take up to three months of regular study and practice to improve your score. Don’t wait until one or two weeks before the exam.

Many students benefit from  private one-on-one or in-person training. You can sign up for our private and group CELPIP programs here:

Vocabulary: Ten-Dollar Words

November 30, 2018

One trap that writers often fall into is using long words that they don’t know the precise meaning of, because they think that it will raise the level of their writing. But rare words in English tend to have very precise meanings, and may only be appropriate in certain contexts. Using a ten-dollar word does not always pay off.
