Cynthia, Parts 2 & 3

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.

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.
