The Canadian Language Benchmarks Placement Test (CLBPT) is the assessment tool we use at LCC. It is task-based, looks at the four primary language skills (Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking), and assigns Canadian Language Benchmarks levels 1 – 8 for each skill.
This test can be used to register in
The CLBPT is NOT accepted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada as proof of language ability for immigration (see the CIC website for language tests you can use for citizenship applications).
Your CLB scores will show your ability to use English in everyday tasks. “Last minute” studying will not improve your results!
