Pedro’s Video: Part One

Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Can respond to questions but with continual pauses in most turns, slow speech and a number of linguistic breakdowns in the ability to express ideas ('that's all'). 'Because' is also overused to link clauses. Unfamiliar questions are problematic due to limited vocabulary and lead to serious problems in expression. For example, part 2 is cut short. Survival phrases are employed to compensate ('things like that').
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Basic sentence forms are common but contain several errors. More complex structures are evident ('one of the most difficult, if you are working) but have very limited success. The fair amount is understandable but eough utterances are mispronounced to cause problems for the listener. A strong accent and L1 pronunciation makes a number of words unclear. Other pronunciation skills such as word stress are also rarely used effectively and turns generally retain the L1 intonation and rhythm.

​I am a gynaecologist by profession and I wanted to pursue career as a doctor in UK. To write the qualifying exam PLAB I needed a minimum score of 7 in all 4 modules and an overall score of 7.5. Without this score I cannot practice as a doctor in UK. I took the IELTS exam in March but could not get the desired score (reading: 7, writing: 6.5, listening: 7.5, speaking: 7 and overall 7). I have then taken the help of iPass and did the IELTS Express course. I also took the help of Nigel for speaking and took IELTS again on 13/08/2016. I got the result on 26/08/2016 and my score is Reading: 7, Writing: 7, Listening: 8.5, Speaking: 8.5 and overall 8). 

This was more than what I needed. Thanks to iPass, which has helped me to improve my score, I can now pursue my medical profession in UK. I recommend iPass to everyone who is struggling to get good scores in IELTS.
