Some weeks ago I was blessed with a really nice opportunity to start my Phd, but I was conditioned on proof of English Skills (IELTS results).
The problem was that I had to obtain good results (average 6.5 with no component less than 6) as soon as possible (about 6 weeks).
I felt pretty confident with my listening and reading skills, but I had big problems with the speaking and writings. Additionally, it was not possible to find a good English course with a schedule that fix with my job.
Thanks to the iPass program “Speaking and Writing Plus” I could prepare it on time and fulfil the requirements for the scholarship. My scores were L:6.0, R: 7.5, W: 6.5, S:7.0
I really appreciate the help of Nigel, Jenny and all the writing tutors for your help. I found all your tips really interesting.
