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

Score Higher Than 28/30 on TOEFL iBT Integrated Writing by Following Five Simple Steps

See you at my TOEFL iBT Blog, Michael Buckhoff Here is a short article to help you improve your writing and speaking skills for the TOEFL iBT Comma Splices, Run-ons, and Fragments: Three TOEFL iBT Grammar Errors You Do Not Want to Make! By Michael Buckhoff Good basic sentence structure requires that you use appropriate punctuation, have clear sentence boundaries, and write in complete ideas. Therefore, when you are completing your independent and integrated writing tasks, you need to avoid comma splices, run-on sentences, and fragments, all of which are common sentence structure errors in writing for both native and nonnative speakers of English. The TOEFL iBT human raters will grade your essay partly based on your grammar usage. If you use only basic grammar accurately, you will not get a high score; if you use advanced grammar with errors, you will also not receive the highest possible score. Therefore, having good control of your sentence structures, which means avoiding comma splices, run-on sentences, and fragments, will help you to score higher on TOEFL iBT writing. Having problems with comma splices, run-ons, and fragments are common errors for both non-native and native speakers.
