Cynthia’s Video: Part Two

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.

If you have to achieve a high IELTS score, I would not invest in teachers without IELTS expertise like I did some months ago. From my personal experience I can say that you will need a specific guidance in order to meet the partly weird requirements of the IELTS format. The practice material on the ipassielts website really helped me to develop a good basis for my exam, especially for the listening and writing part, but what really made the difference were the online and skype tutorials with Nigel and Jenny, who exactly know what the examiners are looking for - as a result I was able to improve my writing from 7.0 to 8.0. Not to mention that these tutorials offered unbelievably good value for the money !

My final result was : Listening 9.0, Reading 9.0, Writing 8.0  and Speaking 7.5 with an overall of 8.5!
