Pedro’s Video: Part Two

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.

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 needed to take IELTS for my registration as a nurse in Canada. Since I had limited time for my registration, time was crucial. So, I took writing and speaking course. I had three skype lessons with Nigel and I got very valuable and constructive feedbacks from the iPass team on my essays. 

As a result, I came very prepared for the exam and got the scores that I needed: L7.5, R8, W7.5, S7.

Thank you iPass team for your help!!
