​Hello iPass team! What an amazing job you did with me! I felt so depressed after I missed by only half a point my IELTS exam 5 times in a row… Then, I decided to register for the “Speaking and Writing Plus” course. I trained a lot and each time I received very quickly the corrections, with all the details to allow me to improve. I also received many tips for my speaking part, which were really helpful. My (long-awaited) results: Listening 7,5: Reading 8,5: Writing 7: Speaking 7: Overall 7,5

I can finally move on and work in Australia and New-Zealand. I have really appreciated your help. Thank you very much!
