Cynthia, Part 1 (overall band 6.5)

Fluency and Coherence - band 7 Lexical Resource - band 7
Able to keep going without noticeable effort. Some hesitation, but this does not affect coherence. Uses a range of linkers (so, because, on the other hand) and discourse markers. Demonstrates a range of vocabulary though inappropriacies occur. There is some ability to use less common items e.g. ‘stay-at-home-mum’, 'drives like crazy'.
Grammatical Range / Accuracy - band 7 Pronunciation - band 6
Both simple and complex sentences are used despite some errors. (present/past simple, present continuous/perfect). 'I have worked' used to talk about a past time). Generally understandable with some good use of word stress and intonation but the latter is overused due to obvious influence of the L1 (down-up intonation at the end of clauses and sentences). Also, some words (glamour, queens?) are difficult to comprehend and create difficulty for the listener.
