​I would like to thank Jenny and her team for their enormous help during my IELTS journey. Jenny is extremely kind, patient, professional, approachable and friendly.

With the help from speaking and writing plus programme I could overcome my weak points and fulfil the requirements for my dental registration in the UK. My
scores were L:8.5 R:8 W:7 S:7.

I really recommend Jenny and the iPass team to everyone.
