CELPIP Speaking Practice

“…I first off wanted to say, WOW!…”

Speaking Practice

At ESL Red Deer you can take Speaking classes to practice for the speaking section of CELPIP General or CELPIP LS language proficiency tests. You can also use our speaking correction service.

Your classes can be online or in our classroom. Most of our speaking practice classes for CELPIP classes are one-on-one with a tutor.

Technical Requirements for Online Conversation Classes

To take an online speaking class, you need a full-sized monitor and speakers. You can use a laptop, an iPad, or a computer monitor.

For much of the class your tutor will share her screen so that you can talk about pictures, work through exercises, and follow examples.

The small size of phone screens makes it very difficult for you to participate in your class fully.

A Typical CELPIP Speaking Class

CELPIP Speaking classes are the same for both General and LS students.

CELPIP Speaking classes are available both in our classroom and online.

During your CELPIP Speaking class, your tutor will use prompts from our collection of 30 speaking practice tests. You will work through questions 1 to 8 as you practice:

* giving advice
* speaking about a life experience
* talking about a picture
* predicting some things that might happen in a picture
* comparing items and persuading someone that your preference is superior
* being diplomatic in a confrontational situation
* providing an opinion about a range of controversial subjects
* recognizing and describing increasingly abstract contexts

Depending on your readiness for the test we may suggest taking a couple of classes to review some of your weaker or missing structures that you need for your desired score.

If you’re preparing for CELPIP, please don’t hesitate to use us. You can take just one class or several classes. Ultimately we want you to go to your test with confidence.
