CELPIP Speaking Practice Classes Online
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.
For students preparing for CELPIP, we can often schedule your class for the day you call.
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.
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.

You can schedule your classes for the same, or different, times each week.
