Xu Hao, Parts 2 & 3

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.

After a year of studying English in order to prepare for IELTS (and after 3 failed attempts to get overall band 7) I can now announce that after finding iPass I have passed it with 7.5 in each part of the test! It is important to emphasize that your online course was by far the best. The combination of self-studying with the help and guide of your personal feedback and training regarding the speaking and writing test was outstanding.

But, more than that, I got a feeling that the iPass tutors were really interested in bringing me through this test with their competence and personality. Thank you, thank you for your sessions with me, not only helpful and efficient in terms of improving my English, but also your encouraging words in every meeting helped me a lot to keep on track, to keep on studying…
