I have decided to start an intensive course at our school for those who want to take the CELPIP* test at Real English Victoria. So many people want to know how to prepare properly and what things they can do to increase their score on the test. But there is so little information and books available, there are few options in Victoria.

Intensive Preparation Course for CELPIP*
9 Weeks: October 1st – November 30th, 2018
Time: 4:30PM – 6:30PM (90 hours)
Cost: $1740 + tax

This is the BEST preparation course in Victoria and it will cover every section of the test multiple times. I am very serious about student results, so the course has been designed to give you the confidence to take the CELPIP* test and help you to move up from 5~6, 6~7, 7~8, or 8~9.

If you follow the exclusive REV system, you will improve quickly. Each week you will practice reading and writing in the first hour and listening and speaking in the second hour of the class. Outside of class, you will be able to plan activities or homework, depending on how you enjoy learning. Some people might prefer to work on writing, while others prefer listening, speaking, or reading at home.

In my next post, I will talk about the different sections of the test, occasionally providing you with videos and websites that I think will help you master the CELPIP* test! But if you really want a good chance of getting the score you need, or if your only goal is to improve your English skills, coming to my class in Victoria will be the best way for you to ace the CELPIP*.

Visit our website ( for more information and check back here in a couple of days for the first post to help you with  CELPIP*.
