​The iPass IELTS 7 course was really very useful to me, it guided me how to prepare well for the exam, as it was the first time for me to take the IELTS test.  I didn’t know anything about it before taking this course. I am really grateful for your amazing help, especially in the speaking test. Also, I am very thankful to you as you extended the course for me when I delayed the date of my exam! 

My results were 7.5 in speaking and 6.5 in reading, writing and listening. Overall, band 7!!!
