Sample Answer

Do you think that the advance of technology has improved standards of education in schools?

I think the growth of the internet has had a major impact on current teaching methods and I’m sure general standards have improved as a result. I strongly believe that the motivation for both learning and teaching has increased because of the phenomenal amount of information now available to both students and teachers. On the other hand, due to a danger of information overload, some people may be put off using technology in the classroom, wishing for a return to more traditional methods.

I got band 6.5 overall and I have now been offered a place for a Masters in Marketing in Sydney, Australia, starting July 2016. For me, practising speaking with you both was really helpful for me. I appreciate your help very much.

Jedd - Libya (New Zealand)

​I’m Kristoffer Gayanilo, aka Jedd. I was Jenny and Nigel’s student in sept, 2013… I took IELTS more than 2 yrs ago while working in Tripoli, Libya.

This January I’m celebrating my first year here in New Zealand and so far, looking back, it was a tough journey.

I welcomed 2016 feeling thankful to the blessings I received from the previous years. Currently, I’m a registered nurse in New Zealand and looking forward to become a resident in this country.

I would like to take this opportunity to say “thank you!” All of this was made possible with your guidance to ace IELTS beyond the band score I was hoping for. Happy new year iPass IELTS team!
