Xu Hao, Part 1 (overall band 5)

Fluency and Coherence - band 5 Lexical Resource - band 5
Produces a degree of fluency but relies on self-correction and pauses. More complex and longer speech is clearly more difficult as can be seen in the early finish in part 2. In addition, few linkers are evident (and, because). Resource is sufficient to talk about familiar and unfamiliar topics, but not at length as there is limited flexibility. There are also a number of word formation errors ('study electronic, very difficulty, foreigner country, have a talking').
Grammatical Range / Accuracy - band 6 Pronunciation - band 5
Uses a mix of simple and complex forms, but with limited flexibility. Errors frequently occur, but do not impede communication. ('now I am study, it was take place, I just send a email to him, more fast'). Range is limited. A large number of mispronounced words ('Bordeaux, conversation, important') cause difficulty for the learner and the overall rhythm of the language is heavily influenced by the L1. Few pronunciation features are evident and sustained.

For my preparations for General IELTS I signed up for writing and speaking exercises with iPass IELTS. This proved to be immensely helpful in securing the minimum 7 bands I needed in each section. The speaking sessions with Ms. Jenny and Mr. Nigel made me aware of various mistakes I was committing and methods to rectify them. In writing I couldn’t have secured 7 bands without the assessments because they were essential in understanding where I could lose marks such as the tone of the letter, inaccuracies in tenses etc. I recommend everyone who is preparing for IELTS to sign up with iPass, it’d definitely help you achieve your required band score and even more than that. My final scores were R9,L8.5,W7,S7. Thanks again iPass team!
