Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Answers the questions but overrelies on slow speech, self-correction and repetitive use of 'so' to create longer turns. There is also evidence of longer pausing when faced with more challenging topics. Has an adequate range of vocabulary to deal with a variety of topics and manages to convey some precise meaning ('intellectual capacity', 'stand out', 'overcome problems, 'depend on''). In contrast, there are several word formation mistakes such as 'theorical' and 'practical' is a continual problem.
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Demonstrates some good structures ('at that time...', 'no longer depend on...') but the majority of the turns use basic present and past tenses with some errors ('I have a lot of time (past))'. There are also several omissions of 'it' ('and is a good thing', 'is very important). Attempts to use stress and intonation but frequent mispronunciation of sounds and words ('occasion', 'clothes', 'home', 'whole year') and L1 influenced word stress ('different', celebrations') seriously affect comprehension.

​I highly recommend iPass IELTS to everyone who wants to succeed at IELTS for a number of reasons.

Firstly, it is not expensive at all and in comparison to other courses, it’s really cheap but not at expense of quality. Secondly, you can practise whenever you can. You just need an Internet connection! What is more, for me, iPass IELTS was crucial for succeeding in the writing and speaking sections.

For the speaking section, it helped me to develop my communication skills, and to be confident in discussing a wide range of topics and to structure my thoughts. Jenny taught me how to correctly use some expressions that are highly valued by the examiner.  Last but not least, iPass IELTS helps you to gain the confidence you need during the interview.

For the writing section, iPass IELTS helped me to coherently structure two essays in a very short amount of time. The detailed and personalized feedbacks by Nigel and Jenny were essential for me to identify my strengthens and weaknesses in writing and to correct them before my exam.
