IELTS Speaking Test Practice On Skype
One of the hardest things for students to do is find someone to give them GOOD speaking test practice. If you study with a friend or with a Skype speaking partner you can never know for sure if you are doing well or not. Speaking with a partner and doing practice tests is good but you may not improve very quickly.
I help my students prepare for the IELTS speaking exam by providing authentic practice speaking tests with valuable feedback. All of my online Skype lessons provide specific feedback that is sure to improve your score. I am so confident that my Skype Speaking Tests will improve your speaking test performance that I guarantee it!
