Pedro’s Video: Part One

Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Can respond to questions but with continual pauses in most turns, slow speech and a number of linguistic breakdowns in the ability to express ideas ('that's all'). 'Because' is also overused to link clauses. Unfamiliar questions are problematic due to limited vocabulary and lead to serious problems in expression. For example, part 2 is cut short. Survival phrases are employed to compensate ('things like that').
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Basic sentence forms are common but contain several errors. More complex structures are evident ('one of the most difficult, if you are working) but have very limited success. The fair amount is understandable but eough utterances are mispronounced to cause problems for the listener. A strong accent and L1 pronunciation makes a number of words unclear. Other pronunciation skills such as word stress are also rarely used effectively and turns generally retain the L1 intonation and rhythm.

I got overall 8.0 band after taking up the online Lite course from iPass IELTS. I would like to express my gratitude to Nigel for his guidance and support in both writing and speaking tasks, his feedback through Skype  made this success, especially in my weak areas of speaking which I have improved by almost one band from 6.5 to 7.5.
