​I’m writing to thank you for all your help on the IELTS 7 course, which permitted me to achieve unexpected results in the last IELTS test. I got overall 7.5: L 7.5 ; R 9 ; W 6.5 ; S 7.5 

I knew that the writing tasks were not the best that I have ever written, so I am not surprised by that grade and I know I will have to do it again for this reason. However, 7.5 in speaking is a level that I did not expect to achieve at all, so we did a really good job!!
