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.

​I got my result of my IELTS test which I took on March 12, 2016 and I’m very happy because I got what I wanted in the speaking test (band 7) and overall band score of 6.5.

I really had difficulty passing the speaking test but with the help of my iPass tutor on the IELTS speaking course, I finally achieved 7 in speaking. I would really recommend iPass to everybody who wants to pass IELTS. You were really a great help to me. Thank you!!
