Hi Michael,
How are you???
My name is Mariana. I took a TOEFL test last year and I got the score 78. I needed 79 to apply for MBA.
I tried to study own my on for almost half year. I had less than one month when I found your webside, even though I had studied your lessons for just one month they helped me a lot. I took the TOEFL test one more time last March 27th and I got the score 93. 🙂
Thank you so much for you help! Your lessons were really helpful for me!

I wish the best to you! God bless you!

Hi Michael,

Today, I received my TOEFL score. My overall score is 100/120. The break up is as follows:

Reading: 22/30

Listening: 25/30

Speaking: 26/30

Writing : 27/30

I want to thank you for helping me. I liked your STEALTH series. I liked your passion about teaching and you want everyone to succeed. I did not have much time to prepare. I was nervous but after watching your lectures, I was confident that I would do fine.

In the end, I want to tell you that you should be proud of yourself that what an incredible teacher you are. I am also a teacher but I teach Microsurgery which is little bit different from English and I commend the efforts you put in your students(including me) with continuous guidance through your newsletters and videos.
Please feel free to contact me for any questions and correct this letter.
Take care,
Syed Gillani, MD

TOEFL Speaking question 6 part 1 (4 samples)

Michael Buckhoff’s “7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT

Exam!”

Here are 3 samples of the TOEFL ibt Speaking question 6. In this question, you are asked to summarize a lecture on an academic topic. From my experience as a teacher, this is one of the hardest questions in the entire test, as it puts your note taking abilities to a test. You have to make sure that you take as much notes as you can, so that when the time to prepare comes, you have a lot of material to work with. As wit all the other questions, you will only hear the lecture once, so it is imperative that you take notes. Most of the time, the lecture provides you with two examples, studies, life experiences etc. Your job is to summarize 1: The main idea of the lecture 2: the two examples provided by the lecturer. 3: Some of the supporting details provided by the professor. You should also try to summarize by paraphrasing the content of the lecture. That is to say find other ways to say the same thing as the professor did. This is supposed to demonstrate your ability to retell information using your own words. So in other words, don’t repeat integrally what the lecturer has said. I wish you the best of luck!!! Here is the link to the PDF speaking scoring grid www.ets.org/Media/Tests/TOEFL/pdf/Speaking_Rubrics.pdf It will give you a good idea of what they use to grade you

See you at my TOEFL iBT Blog, Michael Buckhoff Idiomaticity of Language and the TOEFL iBT Speaking and Writing by Michael Buckhoff In terms of language use, the human raters on TOEFL iBT speaking and writing will judge the Idiomaticity of your language use. But what does this mean? They will determine how natural sounding your speaking and writing is. In other words, would a native speaker express your idea the same way. One of the more difficult hurdles for advanced learners of a new language, idiomaticity of language requires that you avoid unnatural or odd-sounding words and phrases. For example, a native speaker of American English would never say, Merry New Year? Or, it would be quite odd to ask a native speaker of American English, How many years are you since birth? Of course, being as natural sounding in your writing and speaking will help you to get a higher score on the TOEFL iBT. It will demonstrate to the human raters that you have had extensive experience using the English language and therefore understand the appropriate words and phrases that should be used in academic contexts. Despite the importance of this, many of my advanced TOEFL students continue to use expressions like on the other foot instead of on the other hand. Consider the following two sentences, one of which was written by an Advanced TOEFL student in my class Then usually
