Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Answers the questions but has problems producing long turns which creates repetition, self-correction. This affects the cohesion and development of turns. A number of basic linking devices are evident ('but', 'for example') but overused. Is able to discuss familar and unfamiliar topics with some useful and precise lexis. Good examples include 'opportunity' 'cultural activities' and 'economical influence'.
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
A variety of tenses are employed ('I've been working') and several interesting structures ('in order to..', 'in favour of') but errors are numerous ('I'm thinking to go', 'it depends of'', 'websites you can hear', 'more easy'). Fast speech and incorrect pronunciations leads to difficulty in understanding words ('cultural' 'work'). Stress and intonation is used well at times but is inconsistent due to breaks and the accent causes continual difficulty for comprehension.

I highly recommend iPass to anyone who wants to get a high score in speaking section. I needed to get overall 6.5 to apply for my master degree and I met Jenny 6 times for practicing speaking section on Skype.

I got 7.0 in speaking which is over my goal! The examiner really liked some expressions which Jenny taught me and the speaking lesson built my confidence.

Thanks to Jenny I obtained 7.0 and I was really satisfied about it.
