Hi everyone, first of all, I appreciate all the help that was given to me by Jenny who is one of the iPassielts team. Because of her valuable feedbacks and teaching, I was able to achieve band 7 for my speaking that brings me to overall 7.5 with listening 8, reading 7 and writing 7. The idea of practice speaking through the Skype was fabulous because it saved me a lot of time and allows instant feedbacks. Finally, to all the Ielts takers, be patient, persistent and hard working, I believe that you will make it. Thank you so much Jenny.
Marta - Spain
To me, it was great when I sent my first writing task to Jenny. I was very proud of it, but Jenny didn't like it at all and she told me many points to be improved if I wanted to dream of a band 7 in IELTS. At last!! I had found someone who was able to assess my work in the same way as IELTS examiners do, keeping my writing band far away from that 7. Jenny's feedbacks were really useful, so I learnt how to successfuly perform this task and I got my desired mark! In terms of the Speaking, I realised about the difference between a simple conversation and an exam where you need to make sure that you show off all your communication, grammar and vocab skills.
Vladina - Romania
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!

Although I had 6 overall before I started my undergraduate courses, English was still a huge problem for me, especially for writing academic reports/papers. So, I decided to improve my writing with professional help. First three months, results were horrible, approximately 4-5 in the exam terms. Recently, I found my results are good, approximately 6-7. I go through all my feedback which Jenny and Nigel corrected for me, and the toolboxes, which tell me how to construct a proper English eassy. Frankly, I wish I could find this website earlier, I might save hundreds of pounds. My friends who struggle with IELTS, it is absoultely unnecessary to waste money hiring a personal tutor. Using iPass IELTS, genuine English can be provided at any time via Internet. Not only Jenny and Nigel have the real expertise in teaching English, but they are very nice, they are willing to answer you any concern related to IELTS.

我虽然已经进入英国的大学的本科学习了，我的之前的雅思成绩也达到了6分的要求。但是，我的写作英语对我而言仍然是个大问题。我想办法要提高。由于时间和金钱的限制，我打算用网络学习，无意之间发现了这个网站，觉得价格非常合理，36英镑（差不多360人民币）可以批改5篇作文而且还有语法和词汇的资料免费附送。之前的前三个月真的很糟糕，大部分都是4-5，我第一次雅思作文还考6（8成是我运气特别特别好 )。第4个月，我突然发现我的作文到了6-7， 我真的觉得好神奇。我就是把Jenny和年Nigel改的错误一直坚持在看，而且合理利用tool box的词汇和语法资源。而且我发现我的学术论文也提高了10分左右，差不多是2：1了。如果，我第一次考雅思的之前就能知道这个网站的话，我估计能至少省下5000人民币。 考鸭们！如果你们还在为0.5或1分多次重考的话，或者你对自己的英语水平没信心的话，再或者还没决定去哪个培训机构读雅思，这个网站绝对是你首选。在这个网站花比进培训班花至少5分之1的钱，你就可以得到最最专业的指导。我以前在那个新东方的51批改，100个字60人民币，实在太贵了。Jenny和你Nigel 不仅懂得教真正的英语，他们而且是非常好相处的，你们有什么任何有关学习英语和雅思的问题 ，都可以向他们请教,任何问题哦都会得到最专业的解答。 最后，提供英语是没有捷径能走的。

I did a Speaking PLUS course with Jenny and Nigel to practice speaking before my exam. The feedback I got at each session helped me improve a lot and so I got 7.0 for speaking which is just what I wanted to get. I am very glad that I found this website before my test.
I needed to pass the IELTS for continuing my study, but after practicing one month with some books I realized that I wasn't ready for the test, also I had a short period of time before my IELTS exam. Fortunately, I found iPass and I got one month online course. iPass gave me lots of useful and practical advice despite the short preparation. The most important parts of the course were the correction and suggestions of the written tasks and speaking through Skype, which helped me to achieve a better IELTS score (overall 6.5). Thank you Jenny, you really helped me so much getting through this exam. Thanks again for the support.
Andrea Rosso - Italy
I found this website searching over the Internet. I immediately understood it was very precise, and when I finally decided to try it, it was very useful, for the very useful tips and for the very precise corrections and feedback about the Writing tasks. Thanks to Jenny I obtained an overall 7.0 and I was really satisfied about it.
Jia Hua - China
Recently, I just got the IELTS writing 7 after participating 2 writing training packages from ipassielts. Thank you Jenny, through those essay exercises, your detailed feedbacks and explanations helped me the most to achieve that target. I have been through 5 IELTS tests before, none of the writing module reached band 7. Although I tried to attend different classes, even personal tutor, the score remained as around 6. At that time, I kind of realized my problem was not the theoretical knowledge or grammar about the IELTS writing, but more practices. However without any valuable feedback about my writing, the practices would be pointless. That is why I joined the ipassielts writing packages, and I found out this is something exactly that I’m looking for right after the first feedback from jenny. And just after two writing sessions, I finally got what I need. Thank you very much Jenny for your kind support, I will definitely recommend this website to those who are still struggling for the IELTS exam.
Ahmad - Egypt
Hi Nigel, I would like to thank you a lot for your precious help and I am glad to tell you that I have passed the ielts test with an overall score of 7.5 (listening 8, reading 7.5, WRITING 7 and speaking 7) so mission accomplished! Thank you very much - your website is so helpful and if I'd heard about your website before I wouldn't wasted my time and money in useless courses. I appreciate your help ..... thanks again.
Shruthi - India
I wanted a course which specialised in Academic IELTS, and fortunately found the iPass IELTS website. I chose the Excel course because of the 3 speaking and writing practice tests, plus the aspect of personal tutoring appealed to me. I was happy to find extensive resources on the site which helped me practise for all 4 parts of the exam. Both Jenny and Nigel would promptly reply to my every query, especially as I had only 4 weeks to prep for my exam. I especially liked the fact that their feedback always highlighted “good language” and made necessary corrections whenever I went wrong, I am especially thankful for this because I never really consciously knew what was, as Jenny puts it “good use of colloquism”, so once I realised what it meant, I began to use it for all my assignments. I don’t think any other IELTS course has as interactive a facebook page as iPassIELTS. I was overjoyed when I won 2 Friday contests, because I got feedback for two more assignments, which was very helpful. Because of the repeated speaking practise tests, I had a very good idea of what to expect when I went for the exam; in fact, in Part I of my speaking test, I almost repeated verbatim what Jenny had approved of as “good language”. My IELTS results are as follows: Listening:9.0 Reading:8.0 Writing:7.5 Speaking:8.5 Overall:8.5 Overall, I have scored what I set out to achieve and I am truly grateful for Nigel and Jenny’s dedication to helping aspirants like myself all over the world! (The Excel course remains true to its name!) Thank you so much for all your help. This score will give me the competitive edge I need when I apply for PhD, and hopefully scholarships, in Australia.
Pablo - Peru
Thank you iPass for all your support and effective way of developing my writing skills. Thanks to you I achieved a score of 7 in the writing section which is what I needed.
Abbas - Iraq
Thanks to Jenny and Nigel for this wonderful website and also for your support, I've got overall band score of 8! In just one month, my writing jumped from 6.5 to 8, all other bands were between 7 and 8.5, with the excel course I could eventually achieve the score I needed. The relatively fast paced listening exercises were really an effective preparation. The same as for the grammar sessions which are extremely essential, not to mention the highly professional and objective writing and speaking feedback, which can really save your time and money.
Karmaa - Nepal
I am really impressed with the writing correction service of iPass! The courses for all four modules are really helpful! I really want to thank iPass team for their continuous support and guidance! During my preparation time, they were always available and their feedback was very prompt! Finally I succeeded to score desired band 7 in all 4 modules (overall band 8)! Thank-you very much indeed! Keep up the good work!
JQ Park - Korea
I got the band score 6 in speaking section, and I am so happy for the result. I wanted to do some speaking exercises before I took IELTS and iPass was only way that I could experience similar pressure of actual test, and I could get feedback from a professional teacher. Jenny helped me to improve my speaking skill in very short period time. She provided me a similar test situation, and gave me very valuable feedback. If I did not take iPass speaking course, I would not know what things I need to be prepared, and what kind of small mistakes I make.
I just got my results, receiving 7.5 in Speaking and 7.5 in Reading, which was the modules I needed to improve. The results are very satisfying, and was over my expectations actually. I´m also very grateful for all the help and feedback I got from you enabling this results!
I decided to prepare the IELTS by internet because I had a very short time to prepare the exam and I was working long hours at that time. My objective was a score of 6.5 in order to be accepted in a university in London and I was very worried about not being able to get it. But with IPass Ielts I found very useful tools and tips that help me a lot during the exam. My surprise was that at the end I not only obtained the score that needed but a 7.5! I really appreciated the accurate contents of the website as well as the contact with the tutors.
Thanks to your advice, I got the band score 6.0 on speaking section from the last exam. Before your lecture, I had not got band score more than 5.5 (always 4.0 to 5.0), and thus I am sure that your advice helped increase my score.
iPass subscription has been very helpful to get the score of 8 in speaking. Whilst writing tips provided by Nigel has helped improving my score to 7.5. I would recommend aspiring IELTS test takers to take 2-3 speaking test prior to real test to enhance the chances of a better score.
Hi Jenny & Nigel, I got my result yesterday. (Listening 8.5, Reading 7.5, Writing 6.5, Speaking 7.5, Overall 7.5) What impressed me is my speaking. I had taken 5 tests before and I got 6 on each (except for the first one 6.5). This time I was more worried cos the examiner was a native speaker, but I got 7.5 (1.5 increase in about less than one month). This is all thank to your courses, speaking practices and feedbacks. Thanks a lot for helping me achieve a high band score.
I previously sat the IELTS exam on two occasions and didn't achieve my desired result. So when iPass IELTS was suggested to me I checked out the website. I found the course very helpful and am delighted to say i have now achieved the score I wanted. Not only was the course helpful but so too were the iPass team! They were very fast in replying to any questions I had. I would very much recommend this course!
Hello again Jenny & Nigel, First of all I wanna thank you for everything you taught me, it really works!! I just got my last attempt IELTS result and thankfully I've got what I need !! I got 7 for listening, 6.5 for reading, then 6 for writing and 6.5 for speaking!! I'm so happy, finally I can continue my study this July. THANK YOU SO MUCH
Although I'm a native speaker of English I was still worried about taking IELTS as I'd heard the standards were very high, especially for the writing test. I was so desperate to get the required band 7 in each module but I wasn't convinced I could do it in such a short space of time. I joined iPass to get advice on my writing skills and was very impressed with the level of feedback I received. My online tutors told me exactly what I had to do (and what not to do!) in order to achieve a higher band score and the sample answers were very useful to compare and use as a guideline. Above all, the positive feedback and support I received from Jenny and Nigel really helped me to achieve my goal and I ended up with an overall band 9!!
I was looking for an online training course. I read all the information that every site provided, and I chose this site. Many people told me that an online course wouldn't be as effective as an English school in my city, but I bought the Excel course anywise. I was amazed. I found out a lot of useful material. The training was outstanding and the feedback superb, nevertheless I had less than a month to recover my lost skills, and improve the weak ones. I presented the Academic IELTS on May, and I got the band score to perform a postgraduate course in one of the most important Medicine Schools of the United Kingdom. I give thanks to Jenny and Nigel, who are highly-qualified and experienced English teachers, who really care about the progress of their students. Thanks a lot for your outstanding work!
Thank you for providing the helpful lessons last month. I've just received the result of the latest IELTS: 19 May 2012, Overall: 8.0, L: 8.5, R: 8.5, W: 7.0, S: 7.5 (10 March 2012, Overall: 7.0, L: 8.0, R: 8.5, W: 6.0, S: 6.0) As you see, the speaking score has rised dramatically thanks to your great speaking lessons. These scores are perfect to apply to my target schools. Thanks again for your kind support.
Based on my almost 4 years of experience and 13 attempts, I can tell you, that you just can't reach band 7 without an expert help, such as Jenny's or Nigel's. The specific requirements of this exam aren’t built for a regular people to perform them without any guidance… To be more precise, it’s exceptionally true about writing proper almost academic essays in required composition, tone and structure. Finally, Jenny, Thank you for all your efforts, exceptionally helpful, effective and friendly approach!
I got the results today and thank god I got what I need; 8.5 listening, 7 writing, 7 reading and 7.5 speaking I want to thank you so much for your efforts and your wonderful website. You really helped me so much getting through this exam.
About one month ago, I made a rush decision to attend the IELTS test. I only left myself less than two weeks to prepare for the test. But honestly, I didn't know anything about this test at that time. Fortunately, I found iPass. It gave me a thorough and systematic training on the test. Personally, I mostly benefited from the speaking practices with Nigel. He gave me lots of useful and practical advice. Despite the short preparation, I got overall 7 scores for the test and I am satisfied with the results.
Hi Jenny , I got a overall score of 7 in each section. That's more than what I needed. Thanks for your support and guidance which helped me to enhance my score.
The ipass ielts course was very useful and really helped me to revise for the IELTS exam, as it provides exercises similar to those I found in the real exam. I reckon it also has many tips that helped me succeed in this test.
Asanga, Sri Lanka
Hi Jenny/Nigel, I received my results today and was so happy to see that I have achieved the mark I wanted. I have got, 7.5 in reading and listening, 8 in writing and guess what? 8.5 for speech. Now I can start putting my Australian migration plans into action. Thanks a lot for all the help and especially the speech practice tests gave me immense level of confidence to do the real exam. Nice to get to know you two and I wish all the best for all your future endeavors. Regards, Asanga
I believe that the iPass course for the IELTS test had a big influence in my results. The most important parts of the course were the correction and suggestions of the written tasks and speaking through SKPYE, not only for the Speaking test but also because I could ask about the test and have immediate answers. Thank you Jenny and Nigel.

Just want to thank Jenny and Nigel for the incredible support. The spoken feedbacks on the writing tasks were fundamental for my writing improvement.
I am delighted with my 7.5 overall band score in my first attempt and am now ready to apply for midwifery. This course was very helpful and i really think I wouldn't have made it without your help.
Hi Jenny! I've just received my exam results. I got overall band 7: speaking 7.5, listening 7, writing and reading 6.5. I am very happy and I want to say thank you, You helped me a lot. Thank you very much.
You went above and beyond my expectations! You and Nigel are so efficient and very helpful. Excellent service. I have tried other IELTS tutoring services, but I wish I had known about your service from the beginning. I love how you comprehensively graded my papers with feedback and positive encouragement. I've already recommended your site to several people. Thanks to you, I got an overall score of 8.0!!
In my view, all of these exercises are excellent resources to practice. I have gained many benefits from the language toolbox such as useful vocabulary, sample sentences and so on. Therefore, I would like to recommend all members to join the iPass community. Thank you Jenny and team to give a better chance to people in practicing English!
Ellis Lai, Malaysia
The best thing I liked about the iPass course was the written feedback. It was really useful for me. And the overall design of the lessons are also good but I think the time to complete all the lessons must be extended or adjustable and then it would be excellent.
I think the iPass IELTS course was incredible, and a must for all IELTS candidates. The skills I learnt from this course is not only helped me to perform well in IELTS but also increased my confidence level in practical life. I really appreciate the way tutors supported me with patience. Thanx.
Thank you very much for your helpful feedback! It was very useful, to know what I need to improve. It's good to know the overall score in each task, it helps to have an overview about your improvement. I'll need to achieve a 7 score in writing, in my next IELTS. Thanks to your website and tips I'm improving in writing!
Hi Jenny, I received my ielts result yesterday, i passed the exam (thanx god)
Listening: 7.5 - Reading 6.5 - Writing 8 - Speaking 7.5 - Overall band score 7.5
I am really grateful for you and Nigel for the enormous support and help...Tnx again and again
Richelle, The Philippines
Wanna say Congratulations to people that i have made friends with through iPass - to Nareen, Jochen and Trina for the great job..Well done guys..we made it finally!!!Thanks to Nigel and Jenny!!!
After a year of studying English in order to prepare for IELTS (and after 3 failed attempts to get overall band 7) I can now announce that after finding iPass I have passed it with 7.5 in each part of the test! It is important to emphasize that your online course was by far the best. The combination of self-studying with the help and guide of your personal feedback and training regarding the speaking and writing test was outstanding.
But, more than that, I got a feeling that the iPass tutors were really interested in bringing me through this test with their competence and personality. Thank you, thank you for your sessions with me, not only helpful and efficient in terms of improving my English, but also your encouraging words in every meeting helped me a lot to keep on track, to keep on studying...
Trina, The Philippines
Hi! I am so happy to tell you guys that I passed the IELTS the first time I took the exam last month. I'm so lucky I enrolled in iPass, the course was really great. Thank you Jenny and Nigel for your help especially in speaking part, the feedback was really a big help for me to be more confident in the actual exam. God bless you!
Thank you very much iPass. I got overall band 7. (7 in each module!) Whenever I can, I will recommend you, because you've been great and very helpful. You're website is terrific opportunity for anyone who wants to achieve better IELTS score, and I am very glad that I have found you.
Mary, The Philippines
I got overall band 8 (Listening 8, Reading 8.5, Writing 6.5, Speaking 8). Thanks to you and Nigel. I think if I didn't enrol in the course I wouldn't have the confidence that I got specially in speaking where I got the score of 8. I'm so happy with the result of my exam.
Thanks again and all the best to your courses online.
Thank you very much for your support in my IELTS preparation. I have got 6.5 instead of 7 I wanted. However, my result is still acceptable to a number of universities where I would like to study.
I've found the site is very much useful specially for those who are very weak in English.
I have received my results today. I only had few weeks to prepare to get a Band 7, but thanks to your help I got 9 in Listening and Reading and 8 in Speaking (surprise cause it was mainly about art-not my piece of cake:)) Sadly because of my bad time management I did not finished task 1 in writing but got 6 anyway. However, I was afraid i may get much less. I scored 8 out of 9 for all. Needed 7.5 so mission accomplished!
Many many thanks and all the best with expanding your business.
Emily, The Philippines
iPass IELTS Online Course is one of the best learning online to improve your score in all tasks in academic and general level. 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. I got a feedback right away with tips and guidelines to improve more my speaking as well as my writing tasks.(Nigel and Jenny)
Thank you Jenny for my speaking practice with you and for being considerate to my flexi-time in attending this course.
Richelle, The Philippines
I like the the way the iPass ielts course was presented, the examples and given explanation and most of all I like the interactive part of speaking with my co-course mate.

I want to say thank you to iPass especially to jenny and nigel for making this website possible.

Thank to the iPass team for guiding me during my course of study of IELTS. The interactive materials incorporated in this website are interesting and useful for students. I definitely recommend this website to my friends.
I think this online IELTS course is very good. I like the writing and speaking part in this course mostly. I want to say thank you to my teachers, Jenny and Nigel, you indeed gave me a great help in my English study during this month.
I liked the structure of the course, the richness of the materials, the many ways to practice what you've learned. I also liked the easy contact and the kindness of the tutors and their quick and helpful feedback for writing and speaking. This is a wonderful well designed preparation course.

Jane, Hong Kong
I took the ielts in July, and I got a satisfactory score! Thanks to the iPass, I watched the video of the speaking test on the website and know how to behave better when speaking to the examiner...
This month, I did my third time IELTS test, and I at last got my satisfactory score. Thank you for ipass and all member of its team. I feel this site helped me a lot with my writing. There are plenty of excellent writing materials. After I take the practise of writing on this site, I got IELTS score of Writing above 6 twice. I do want to recommend this site on the sites of my country. I finished IETLS though, I will go on paying attention to this site. I want to keep learning and using English in the rest of my life. The new blog articles are brilliant!
Namurit, The Philippines
Hello iPass. I just wanted to tell you I passed with an overall band of 7.5. I got 7 on speaking. Thank you to everyone who is responsible for this site.
Elena, The Netherlands
I became an iPass member to help me become a registered nurse in New Zealand. And it worked! I needed a minimum of 7 in each category but I did even better with 8.5 – 7 – 7.5 - 7
Thank you very much iPass. You have made me feel confident and relax about the examination. I have strong feeling that I will get a high mark in the essay writing and that will due to your instructions and advice.
Alaa Sadiq, Iraq
An excellent web site for ielts material. Thanks a lot for a big effort you have spent.
The feedback I get for my writing is very good and makes me more confident about the IELTS exam.
James, Teacher in Portugal
I use the iPass videos all the time with my students. They are great for preparing ielts candidates for the real speaking test.
