I received my IELTS results and my overal band score is 7.5 (my target was at least 6.0). I was a little bit worried for the Speaking part but the speaking practice with Nigel helped me a lot and as a result, I got 7.5 in the Speaking part. He also gave me valuable feedback for the Writing part which helped me to improve some important aspects. They answered very fast all the questions I had. All the practice from the course was also very useful. Thank you!
