Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Responds to the questions but utilises pauses, repetition and self-correction. Longer turns demonstrate difficulty although some basic linkers are used effectively ('because', 'and'). Manages to talk about each topic but with a limited range of lexis. Some words are repeated ('can go',went there') and there are some word formation problems ('very easy', 'quite well').
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Simple tenses are adopted to answer most questions with little evidence of more advanced forms. Also, errors stand out such as basic comparatives ('more easy', more clean'), plurals ('old building', 'different country') and ommitted articles ('living in city'). A significant portion of the speech is understandable and there is some good stress and intonation but numerous sounds are mispronounced (L/R/V) and words such as 'walk' and 'people' are difficult to understand. There is also some weak stress of final consonants and little evidence of continued pronunication features over long turns.

​I would like to give many thanks to Jenny and all the members of the iPass team. Finally, I’m able to get band 7 in IELTS: 6.5 in Listening; 7.5 in Reading; 7 in Writing and 6 in Speaking. Especially in Writing, I’m really happy because after taking the Writing Plus online course, I was able to get my desired writing score in my first IELTS test. With the feedback on six writing tasks 1 and 2, I was able to improve my writing skills in the real test. Thanks again to you and your iPass team for helping me to achieve my desired IELTS score.
