Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Is willing to speak at length about most topics but hesitation and self-correction causes some fluency problems. Speech is generally well-developed and uses a range of linking devices. Uses a wide range of lexis and shows understanding of style and collocation. There are also several exmaples of less common and more idiomatic language such as 'volunteer basis', 'you can be mobile' and 'miscommunication'.
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
Utilises a nice range of complex structures with generally good accuracy ('you choose, depending on what..', 'to help brands to..is to combine...'). However, a couple of errors do provide some problems for the listener such as 'makes feel like having garden', 'If I went to see them it couldn’t be...' Uses some varied stress and intonation to convey precise meaning but it is not sustained. Continual difficulties with phonemes such as L and R and frequent rapid speech makes individual sounds and words unclear.

​I just got my results and I’m overwhelmed! I got 8.5 in Listening, 8.0 in Reading, 7.5 in Writing and 8.5 in Speaking (former results: 7.5, 8.0, 6.5, 7.0) after doing the Speaking + Writing Plus course! Thank you so much, Jenny, for your help! 

Not only the helpful Skype sessions and detailed corrections and comments of those looking over all my essays, but also the kind and motivating emails and conversations that helped a lot and made me carry on and believe I can do it. I am so happy. This is my best Christmas present this year! 

I would recommend iPassIELTS without any hesitation to anyone taking the IELTS test needing even very high marks. 

With the Top-ups I could keep having feedback on the tasks I needed until I felt fully prepared. I definitely made the right choice here. Thank you so much!
