Helia’s Video: Part One

Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Pausing ('errm') is common in most turns but the ability to answer questions is evident and linkers (so, and, but, because) are employed to some good effect. However, short turns are still dominant. A good range of vocabulary ('handicraft, import/export') is employed to answer some questions but there are also a number of basic countable/uncountable errors ('watch movie, labors, physical works, do the works) and word form ('I work in a hairdressing, I like interior designer').
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Basic tenses and structures are consistently used. Although, a few more complex ones are noticeable (I've been doing, I'd like to do, he's almost..but.. still, he's used to) with varied success. Clear and understandable throughout with limited pronunciation problems. However, the ability to sustain sentence level stress and intonation is lacking due to thinking pauses.

Amidst a number of online courses available, iPass IELTS gives you exactly what is required. Small tips and tricks help you to improve your band score, as happened in my case within two weeks. Their flexibility in arranging time for Skype exam practice is most praiseworthy.
I took this exam and my score was listening 7.5, reading 7, writing 6.5 and speaking 6.5. I required 7 across all modules for my fellowship in Australia. I was looking for some tutors who can exactly tell me where I lack and how to improve my art of writing and speaking. Indeed, I needed someone who can grade my essay writings and speaking abilities.
I took online course with iPass IELTS which included essay writing for evaluation and Skype exam practices.  When I received my essay corrected from IELTS team, I realized my problem of essay writing was not using punctuation and linking words appropriately and subject- verb agreement.  Similarly, after three Skype practices, I was reasonably sure that I can achieve the target band.  I took the exam just after two weeks and my score improved to my satisfaction. (Listening 8, reading 7.5, Writing 7.5 and speaking 7, overall 7.5)
