What do I get?
Here is a typical evaluation:
Overall, I noticed that you seemed quite fluent and comfortable as you spoke. I noticed a few areas for improvement as well. For example, the vocabulary you used in response to Part 2 was not very technical, and some of the words, like “writing,” that you used were not very accurate. In the case of “writing,” you could have used “essay” or “report.”
Your grammar was quite accurate much of the time, although you relied too heavily on using simple sentence structures. You did seem to struggle with verb tenses here and there, for example, using the present progressive tense in Part 1 when you described your work instead of the simple present.
Your pronunciation was clear throughout all sections on the level of individual words. However, intonation and sentence stress are areas to focus on. Remember that when you make a statement (a sentence ending with a full stop) in English, your voice generally goes down at the end of the sentence, and that when you ask a question, your voice goes up.
Finally, your cohesion could use some work. I noticed that you attempted to use transitions as you spoke, but some of them were incorrect. For instance, you want to use “moreover” when you are adding details, not when you are telling events in sequence. Also, you did not answer the questions as directly as you should. Your answers were too long at times.
Why should I do it?
Exam coming up in the next few days? Solve any last minute problems before going into the exam. If you had an evaluation like the one above, you may want to concentrate on your intonation and vocabulary.
How long does it take?
5 minutes to record, and then just 24 hours until you get your personalised report.
