The staff was friendly, understanding, helping and encouraging. My examiner had a big smile on her face, too, while asking me the questions. That was extremely motivating and comforting!

Overall, although the test itself seemed to be challenging,it was a good experience. I would recommend Mohawk to anyone wanting to take IELTS."
