Pedro, Part 1 (overall band 5)

Fluency and Coherence - band 4 Lexical Resource - band 4
Can respond to questions but with noticeable pauses in most turns, slow speech and a number of linguistic breakdowns in the ability to express ideas ('that's all'). 'Because' is also overused to link clauses. Unfamiliar questions are problematic due to limited vocabulary and lead to serious problems in expression. For example, part 2 is cut short. Survival phrases are employed to compensate ('things like that').
Grammatical Range / Accuracy - band 6 Pronunciation - band 6
Basic sentence forms are common and more complex structures are evident though errors occur ('one of the most difficult'; 'if you are working'). Can generally be understood throughout. Some effective use of intonation and stress, but this is not sustained. Individual words may be mispronounced, but this causes only occasional lack of clarity.

Before enrolling on an iPass IELTS course with the cost of 95 euros, I had spent much more than that for many other IELTS courses in my country. However, I never achieved the needed score of 7.0. I lacked confidence and could not know why I was wrong and where were the mistakes. Then I spent 3 weeks with Jenny and Nigel in writing and speaking, at which I was really bad. Finally, I got 7.0 in overall, 7.0 in speaking and 6.5 in writing in just 3 weeks!!! It was beyond my expectation because before that, I got only 5.5 in speaking and 6.0 in writing! Moreover, Nigel also helped me fix my CV in the best way (of course I had exchanged one writing credit for that, but it was still really helpful for me to make a good PhD application). With that score, I am now are more than eligible for applying a PhD course and a PhD scholarship in the UK! Therefore, I would like to send my extreme gratitude and thanks to Nigel and Jenny for all of their recommendations and suggestions. I definitely recommend this website to all my friends.
