​As an overseas nurse looking for a job in the UK, I needed to get academic IELTS score 7.0 in all four area. 

I gave it a try a couple of times after studying IELTS on my own but speaking and writing were very frustrating. I wanted to attend some classes but it was not feasible for me because of my irregular working schedule as a nurse. 

It was so lucky that I found the iPass IELTS 7 course. It included speaking and writing sessions which turned out to be extremely helpful. I was not aware of what I was doing wrong during the speaking & writing tests but after hearing Nigel & Jenny’s feedback, I learned my mistakes and some useful tricks. 

Finally, on the following exam, I got the scores i needed and now I’ve got my job offer from a hospital in Greater London and am currently waiting for my visa to move to the UK. 

I cannot express how grateful I am to the iPass team and am currently considering taking their professional English course. Thank you so much!!
