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-ninth error as they state:

The CELPIP Speaking Test measures your ability to communicate in spoken English. Test takers are evaluated on many factors, including relevance and depth of meaning. A common error during the Speaking component is replying to test prompts without providing enough descriptive detail.

Test takers who do well on the Speaking Test reply to test prompt directly, but then they go on to support their answers with relevant details. For example, if you are asked to name your favourite season and you reply simply, "summer," your answer would be considered undeveloped and be lacking supporting details You should say why summer is your favourite season and provide a series of examples. For instance, you could say, "I like summer because it's warm and I can be outside more," and so on.

Try to make sure the details you provide in your answers are relevant to the test prompt. No matter how many supporting details you give, if you aren't answering the question asked or following the instructions given, you will lose marks. The best way to stay on topic is to read the test prompt carefully.

CELPIP's twentieth-eighth error as they state:

Stress is the emphasis placed on certain syllables within words. Stressed syllables are longer, clearer, and higher in pitch than unstressed syllables. For example, with the two-syllable word little, the stress is on the first syllable, i.e., li-ttle. Changing the stress in a word can change its meaning, as demonstrated here with console: console = the front panel of a car; console = the comfort someone.

CELPIP's twentieth-seventh error as they state:

Intonation is the most important aspect of English pronunciation because it directly conveys meaning. Intonation is the raising (↑) and lowering (↓) of the pitch at the end of an information unit. Information units are exactly what their name suggests: units of information or meaning within an utterance. When speaking, we need to pause briefly after each information unit. Look at the example below; it is one sentence, but there are two units of information.

The house at the end of the street belongs to my brother.

  1. The house is located at the end of the street.
  2. This house is owned by my bother.

English intonation is quite easy to learn because it is so predictable. With a few exceptions, we lower our pitch at the end of every information unit as shown in the example (/ = pause)

The house at the end of the street ↓ / belongs to my bother ↓.

The most common intonation error on the CELPIP Speaking Test is when speakers raise their pitch at the end of an information unit when they should be lowering it. This is very confusing for listeners because rising .intonation in English usually indicates a yes/no question. Even though you are making a statement, it sounds like you are asking a question, and this is confusing.
