Thanks Nigel and Jenny for this great website. As a result I passed my IELTS and I got a high score with the speaking test.  Your materials and the tutorials were really helpful. You were like the real examiner that I had in front of me during the test, Nigel and I was lucky the topic was one that we practiced. I would recommend  this site for everybody who is taking IELTS because it is great.
