Xu Hao’s Video: Part One

Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Produces a degree of fluency but relies on slow speech, self-correction and pauses. More complex and longer speech is clearly more difficult as can be seen in the early finish in part 2. In addition, few linkers are evident (and,because). Vocabulary range is enough to talk about each question but not at length. There are also a number of word formation errors ('study electronic, very difficulty, foreigner country,have a talking').
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Has a grasp of basic forms but errors still persist ('now I am study, it was take place, I just send a email to him, more fast'). More complex structures ('if..') are attempted but with errors. A large number of mispronounced words ('Bordeaux, conversation, important') causes difficulty for the learner and the overall rhythm of the language is heavily influenced by the L1. Few pronunciation features are evident and sustained.

Katharina from Germany had the very tough task of achieving 7.5 in each test to do her medical elective in Scotland.

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.
