Cynthia’s Video: Part One

Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Willing to speak at length but with evident linguistic pauses and slow speech. Some basic linkers (so, because, on the other hand) are used well but 'for example' is utilised many times. Demonstrates a sufficient range of vocabulary to deal with most questions but little evidence of idiomatic or collocational knowledge except 'drives like crazy'.'A lot' is repeated many times and 'things' is used due to a lack of precise lexis.
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Generally utilises basic tenses (present/past simple, present continuous/perfect) with few errors ('I have worked' used to talk about a past time). An If structure is utilised ('if you live in the country you have to..') but only once. Generally understandable with some good use of word stress and intonation but the latter is overused due to obvious influence of the L1 (down up intonation and the end of clauses and sentences). Also, some words (glamour, queens?) are difficult to comprehend and create difficulty for the listener.

About one month ago, I made a rush decision to attend the IELTS test. I only left myself less than two weeks to prepare for the test. But honestly, I didn’t know anything about this test at that time. Fortunately, I found iPass. It gave me a thorough and systematic training on the test. Personally, I mostly benefited from the speaking practices with Nigel. He gave me lots of useful and practical advice. Despite the short preparation, I got overall 7 scores for the test and I am satisfied with the results.
