Recently, I just got the IELTS writing 7 after participating 2 writing training packages from ipassielts. Thank you Jenny, through those essay exercises, your detailed feedbacks and explanations helped me the most to achieve that target. I have been through 5 IELTS tests before, none of the writing module reached band 7. Although I tried to attend different classes, even personal tutor, the score remained as around 6. At that time, I kind of realized my problem was not the theoretical knowledge or grammar about the IELTS writing, but more practices. However without any valuable feedback about my writing, the practices would be pointless. That is why I joined the ipassielts writing packages, and I found out this is something exactly that I’m looking for right after the first feedback from jenny. And just after two writing sessions, I finally got what I need. Thank you very much Jenny for your kind support, I will definitely recommend this website to those who are still struggling for the IELTS exam.
