English for Interviews

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.

​Thank you to Jenny, Nigel and the iPass team for your invaluable contribution to my IELTS success.

I joined the IELTS writing course to get my writing skills assessed; it was so helpful for me to identify my weaknesses in that area. 

Passing IELTS is as much a matter of mastering English as it is being familiar with the structure of the exam. 

iPass was crucial for me, especially in the writing component. Before joining iPass, I scored 6.5; after their invaluable contribution, I scored 7.0.

I am very thankful for your help and feedback. I will definitely recommend the IELTS iPass course to anyone I know who is going to take it in the future.
