CELPIP Preparation: Overview

The CELPIP Preparation Program helps future test takers to prepare for the individual components of the CELPIP test (both CELPIP General and CELPIP-General LS). The program emphasizes the requirements and the expectations of each section of the test and increases students’ chances of achieving their target score.

Ashton College offers a CELPIP Preparation Program for those planning on taking the CELPIP test. The program is offered live online and is designed to prepare students for individual components of the CELPIP-General and the CELPIP-General LS tests. Students can register for individual modules of their choice, or take the entire training for all four modules of CELPIP test.

The CELPIP Preparation Program allows potential test takers to fully prepare for different components of the CELPIP test, increasing their ability to achieve their target score.

The program focuses on improving students’ language skills and helping them better understand the test format, style and expectations.
