Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Answers the questions but overrelies on slow speech, self-correction and repetitive use of 'so' to create longer turns. There is also evidence of longer pausing when faced with more challenging topics. Has an adequate range of vocabulary to deal with a variety of topics and manages to convey some precise meaning ('intellectual capacity', 'stand out', 'overcome problems, 'depend on''). In contrast, there are several word formation mistakes such as 'theorical' and 'practical' is a continual problem.
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Demonstrates some good structures ('at that time...', 'no longer depend on...') but the majority of the turns use basic present and past tenses with some errors ('I have a lot of time (past))'. There are also several omissions of 'it' ('and is a good thing', 'is very important). Attempts to use stress and intonation but frequent mispronunciation of sounds and words ('occasion', 'clothes', 'home', 'whole year') and L1 influenced word stress ('different', celebrations') seriously affect comprehension.

I received my IELTS results and my overal band score is 7.5 (my target was at least 6.0). I was a little bit worried for the Speaking part but the speaking practice with Nigel helped me a lot and as a result, I got 7.5 in the Speaking part. He also gave me valuable feedback for the Writing part which helped me to improve some important aspects. They answered very fast all the questions I had. All the practice from the course was also very useful. Thank you!
