Sample Answer

Which environmental problems are people most concerned about in your country?

I think people in my country are most concerned about future shortages of fresh drinking water, which I suppose is both a result of poor water management and general global warming. I think everyone is feeling the effects of the latter problem which is causing us to experience more extreme temperatures, for example, much colder winters and much hotter summers. The long hot summers are particularly worrying in the south of the country where there is a real risk of drought due to the consistent lack of rainfall.

I got band 6.5 overall and I have now been offered a place for a Masters in Marketing in Sydney, Australia, starting July 2016. For me, practising speaking with you both was really helpful for me. I appreciate your help very much.

​As a requirement for my NMC Application to the UK, I needed a band score of 7 on all areas of the IELTS examination. I only had a month to review and with the help of Miss Jenny Bedwell and the iPass team tutors, I was able to pass in one sitting and achieved marks higher than what was required (7.5 in each test!)

Thus, I highly recommend iPass IELTS to everyone seeking to get a high score since the IELTS Lite training modules are proven to be efficient, especially for those who will take their examinations in a computerized setting like I did.
