Helia’s Video: Part Two

Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Pausing ('errm') is common in most turns but the ability to answer questions is evident and linkers (so, and, but, because) are employed to some good effect. However, short turns are still dominant. A good range of vocabulary ('handicraft, import/export') is employed to answer some questions but there are also a number of basic countable/uncountable errors ('watch movie, labors, physical works, do the works) and word form ('I work in a hairdressing, I like interior designer').
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Basic tenses and structures are consistently used. Although, a few more complex ones are noticeable (I've been doing, I'd like to do, he's almost..but.. still, he's used to) with varied success. Clear and understandable throughout with limited pronunciation problems. However, the ability to sustain sentence level stress and intonation is lacking due to thinking pauses.

But after taking the iPass Writing & Speaking Plus course, she did it!!

Her speaking score went from 7 to 8.5 and her writing increased from 6.5 to 7.5 - an amazing result - well done Katharina!!

​I enrolled to iPass Speaking course because I was not able to achieve the band score of 7 in speaking after two consecutive attempts of the IELTS exam. I became aware of my need to seek a professional tutor and Nigel was an answered prayer. He gave me encouragement, even coached me with more precise answers to one particular question and he is a very hands-on personal tutor. I could not ask for more. 

Finally, in my third attempt I achieved my long awaited band score of 7 in the speaking test, So I want to give a big thank you to Nigel and the iPass IELTS team for making my American dream come true. I can now work as a Staff Nurse in America. Please continue to touch peoples’ lives with your unwavering dedication to teach students like me, who dream for a better future.
