A Typical CELPIP Advice Email Question

The Advice email question asks you to write an informal email or letter offering advice to someone you know. You may write to a friend, family member or co-worker making suggestions of some things they could do to improve their situation. They may be considering self improvement options like taking a course or losing weight, or they may be dealing with a problem like a stressful workplace or relationship.

For CELPIP, you have about 27 minutes to write your email. It should be 150-200 words.

For IELTS General, you have about 20 minutes to write your letter. It should be about 150 words.

A typical advice email question looks like this:
