December student of the month

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 especially recommend the speaking practice course, and thanks to that, I got 7.5 on speaking and 7.0 overall. Before taking this course, I had taken different online practice by a different school, which does not specialise in IELTS. A tutor of the school changed my whole sentences into her complete ones. Jenny, by contrast, has ample knowledge of IELTS and lots of experience for teaching test-takers so she gave me reliable advice with which I could make immediate improvement. These lessons built my confidence, and produced my motivation to review and prepare for lessons with her. Most importantly, she understood my schedule of IELTS, and  encouraged empathically. I'm pretty sure I can't achieve my target without her big support!
