Maria, Spain (overall band 6)

Fluency and Coherence - band 6 Lexical Resource - band 6
Answers the questions and is able to produce long turns. There is slow speech due to hesitation which affects development. A number of basic linking devices are evident ('but', 'for example') but overused. Is able to discuss topics at length with some useful and precise lexis. Good examples include 'opportunity' 'cultural activities'
Grammatical Range / Accuracy - band 6 Pronunciation - band 6
A variety of tenses are employed ('I've been working') and several interesting structures ('in order to..', 'in favour of') but errors are numerous ('I'm thinking to go', 'it depends of'', 'websites you can hear', 'more easy'). Control of phonological features is variable. Pronunciation of words ('cultural' 'work') sometimes lack clarity. Stress and intonation is used well at times but is inconsistent.

The ipass ielts course was very useful and really helped me to revise for the IELTS exam, as it provides exercises similar to those I found in the real exam. I reckon it also has many tips that helped me succeed in this test.
