Cool & contemporary vocab: transport

There are more people using more forms of transport now than ever before. People need to travel to get to school, college or work, but all the cars and buses on the road cause a lot of traffic jams and pollution. In large cities like Beijing and even London and Paris, both have become serious problems.

Until technology and our governments find an effective solution to enable us to travel quickly, cheaply and in an environmentally-friendly way, we will continue to face the problems of heavy congestion and polluted air. Whether the electric car is the best answer remains to be seen, but it is definitely a step in the right direction!

​I’ve got the result of IELTS test I took on 18th March: listening 8; speaking 7.5; reading & writing 7; overall 7.5.

I needed 7 in each band to register as a doctor in Canada, but I was struggling with my writing skills. Fortunately, I have now got 7 in writing, exactly what iPass scored me on the IELTS Writing course.

Thank you so very much for your suggestions and feedback which really helped me to improve my writing and get the desired score.

I’ve already recommended iPass to some of my friends!
