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.

The tutors are well trained and had enough experienced to handle the course as if they were in a real classroom. Their was a live interactive communication like in speaking practice in skype between Jenny and me.
