Celeste - iPass student of the month

Celeste joined iPass in June and signed up for the IELTS 7 course. She had taken the IELTS already in May but didn’t get the band 7 score she needed in each sub test for her nursing application in the UK. Her overall band score was 7 but her Speaking score was 6.5.

Celeste was very determined to improve her Speaking score and in each Skype class she listened very carefully to her tutor, who helped her to pinpoint some of her weaker areas and gave her useful tips on how to improve them. She also made very good use of all the iPass materials available on the course, not just sticking to the core lessons but also doing extra exercises from the IELTS toolkit to perfect her interview technique and boost her knowledge of vocabulary and grammar.

And it worked! When Celeste retook her IELTS test in August, she didn’t just increase her speaking band to 7, but she exceeded her expectations with a fantastic 7.5!!

Celeste realised that a combination of focused practice with expert guidance from an experienced tutor was the key to getting good results and her hard work and determination paid off!

We wish Celeste every future success when she starts her new position as a registered nurse in England!
