When I was studying for my CELPIP exam I got material from them. Unfortunately, I can not put the PDF to the public because it has a watermark with my personal email. But I can put you here what it says.

CELPIP's twentieth-third error as they state:

Homonyms are words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings. An example is "none" (zero) and "nun" (a holy woman). These two words are pronounced exactly the same, but as you can see, their meaning and spelling are different.

Malapropisms are words that are frequently mistaken for other words because they look and sound somewhat similar. Malapropisms often result in nonsensical and humorous errors. An example is, "My aunt is in a comma." A "comma" is a punctuation symbol; this person means to say that her aunt is in a "coma"(is unconscious).

Mistakes with homonyms and malapropisms are common in the CELPIP Writing Test. Sometimes this problem occurs because of overreliance on the Spell Check feature. Remember, the computer can only determine if a word is incorrectly spelled. It cannot tell you if you've used the wrong word. Sometimes, this word choice error is the result of a problem with spelling or typing. Test takers either don't know the correct spelling of a word and guess incorrectly, or they type the wrong word. Eighter way, an improper word is used.

After living for 5 years in Canada with three different employers and at least five work permit renewals, I finally got the permanent resident in Canada for me and my family. I will describe in this article how I did it and I will share some few tips.

Please remember I am going to write what to do, not how to do it. I will also describe my specific case, which it will be useful for those who have a similar scenario. Please do not send me questions regarding how to do things or what if you have another profession different than mine, I will just ignore those comments.

CELPIP's twentieth-second error as they state:

The transition terms are words and phrases that help the reader or the listener follow your narrative and connect your ideas together. They are like traffic signals, alerting the reader or listener to what might come next. There are three areas where errors most often occur on the CELPIP test in relationship to transition terms:

  1. They are not used at all. This usually means the latest taker tries to communicate a series of ideas that are disconnected and difficult to piece together.
  2. They are used illogically. Since specific transitions terms have specific meanings need to be chosen carefully or they will confuse the listener or reader.
  3. They are used erroneously. Sometimes transition phrases are used ungrammatically.
