Sample Answer

No, I don’t think that it’s necessary for all films to be educational. In fact, I think people go to the cinema because they simply want to be entertained, not always educated. Watching a film on the big screen is a form of escapism and so people want adventure, romance or fantasy. As far as I’m concerned, if I’m looking to be educated I would choose to read a book or watch a documentary, although actually I do also enjoy historical films which teach me something about the past.

I took the IELTS Speaking and Writing course. I improved my speaking score from 6.0 to 7.0 through mock speaking tests for one month. Without iPass, I would not have taken my ideal score of 7.5 overall.

My story with the IELTS began three years ago. I needed an overall band of 7 with no sub score below 7 in order to proceed with my future plans. I had the IELTS 9 times and on every attempt I got the same disappointing score of 6.

In all the tests I had, I was able to only achieve 5.5 in writing and 6 in the speaking. However, after I started a regular speaking and writing courses with Nigel and Jenny, my oldest dream has been fulfilled. I liked the speaking tests conducted with Nigel and Jenny as they were simulating the real speaking interviews. In addition, the immediate feedback has greatly helped me to avoid my mistakes in the future tests.

The correction of my essays was really accurate and concise, with only 10 essays with Jenny and Nigel, my writing skills have been refined and developed. Eventually, no more IELTS tests after this moment. I was able to attain the following score: Listening: 8, Reading: 7.5, Writing: 7.5, Speaking: 7, Overall score: 7.5

Again thank you Jenny and Nigel.
