Étienne uses an Online TOEFL Course and later scores 105.

Étienne felt that the writing scoring is very objective and iBT writing specialists can score it any way they please. So Étienne took it upon himself to pay a subscription for Michael Buckhoff’s Online TOEFL Course: “The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.” In order to apply into the university of his dreams, Étienne asked to review Michael’s prominent vocabulary, grammar, and writing sections to improve his writing mastery in English. Needing marks minimal to or higher than one-hundred-five, Étienne mentioned how when he previously was enrolled in a TOEFL course for 3 months last year, his results in reading, listening and speaking sections were good but not in writing. With one month and a half, Étienne reviewed Michael’s course to improve his difficulties in writing.

Étienne had 15 exclusive vocabulary lessons; vocabulary exercises; and practice tests with 90 hours of total instruction and 2,700 total questions for a potential mastery 1,700 TOEFL words.

On that account, with Michael’s vocabulary section, Étienne was able to study words long enough until he personally felt comfortable using them; eventually students like Étienne are able to support their generalizations and ideas in the speaking and writing sections with details by developing a larger vocabulary foundation. Furthermore when completing vocabulary lessons; Étienne was able to engage in vocabulary exercises, listening exercises and final exams for a mastery of 1,700 TOEFL words; Étienne as a result super-sized his vocabulary knowledge and understanding.

Étienne further had 8 exclusive grammar lessons, 35 hours of total instruction and 2,000 total questions with exclusive access to college level editing, grammar, and writing to evaluate his grammar competencies.

On that account, with Michael’s grammar section, Étienne was able to study Michael’s grammar lesson plans which improved his skills in: punctuation, editing, and writing; as well as, Étienne’s competencies in: learning basic and advanced sentence structures, verb tenses, word choice, and word forms, parallel structures, and so on. For that reason, it was critical that Étienne not only completed these writing, grammar, and research exercises but also understood what he was being taught, for learning this content will better acquaint Étienne and students with the rigors of academic writing.

Lastly, Étienne had 16 exclusive writing lessons, 40 independent and 43 integrated practice tests plus 100′s of skill-building exercises with 90 hours of total instruction and feedback provided by a writing specialist.

On that account, with Michael’s writing section, Étienne was able to study with Michael’s writing lessons and exercises where he learned independent and integrated writing skills like: how to decode the writing task, organize a coherent response, writing detailed developmental paragraphs, and end his essays with a conclusion. This is why Étienne was able to target and improve his writing weaknesses by gaining competence and focusing in mastering his writing proficiency. In addition, with feedback provided by a writing specialist, Étienne was able to know how he needed to improve and which lessons would be better suited for him to study.

In the end, Étienne scored: R-25, L-26, S-27, and W-27. Totaling to 105, which will enable Étienne to receive admission into the university of his dreams! Like Étienne, improve your writing intelligibility with Michael’s prominent course.

After S. completed lessons in her Online TOEFL Course for a while, she took the TOEFL Exam and told her mentor….

About two months ago, S. joined an Online TOEFL Course called The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. Since then, she has been completing vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking lessons. In particular, she has concentrated heavily on completing the lessons and practice tests in the pronunciation, writing, and speaking sections of the course because she needs to score 26 and 24 on the speaking and writing sections.

Finally, last week she re-took the TOEFL exam and sent the following message to her TOEFL mentor:

Hi Michael,

I just finished my exam. I think it went well. Hope I cross 100.
My independent essay was :
Agree or disagree to “students these days are disrespectful to their teacher”
Interegrated essay was:
Summarize how the lecture challenges the points in the reading .
“reading talks about how sauropods are giants. Reasons for it: 1) oxygen concentration 2) abundant plantations
3) warn climate !! during the dinosaur age.
While lecture argues:
Contrary to these points based on scientific research now.

Speaking was okay.
1) what is your opinion !!!
” if you want to contribute to society through volunteer which would you choose: – (there were 3 options to choose from and I chose I would volunteer by planting more trees…. And gave exams on glabal warming )

2) what is your opinion type question again !!!!
” should friends be in the same classes “

Even though S. did not have the official results from ETS concerning her TOEFL score, she was confident that she did well.  Most students do have a pretty good idea of how well they performed right after taking the test. Michael was happy to get S.’s message, so he prepared the following video message for her:

Rav contacted Online TOEFL Course teacher Michael Buckhoff and asked him to analyze her score report.

Unfortunately, like other students, Rav has taken the TOEFL exam several times, each time coming up short of her goals. Frustrated beyond belief, Rav found a web site titled “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” an Online TOEFL Course featuring more than 330 vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking lessons.  Rav, who was almost willing to try anything at this point in order to make progress toward her TOEFL goals, contacted Michael Buckhoff, the founder,  owner, and the materials writer of “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.” In fact, they exchanged several messages, and finally Rav sent Michael her most recent TOEFL scores so that he could analyze them.  The purpose of the analysis was quite simple:  What does Rav need to study before she will be able to reach her TOEFL goals?

The following video will illustrate Michael’s analysis of Rav’s TOEFL score report:

A. has been completing lessons in her Online TOEFL Course to improve her pronunciation and speaking fluency of American English.

A. joined an Online TOEFL Course called “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT” because, the last time she took the TOEFL exam, she scored 22/30 on the speaking section. The feedback on her score report said that she was difficult to understand at times and that she had problems with intonation, pacing, and stress.

Therefore, A. is working very closely with her TOEFL speaking mentor who is helping her to improve her pronunciation of the vowel and consonant sounds, syllable division and grammatical word endings, word stress, sentence rhythm, intonation, thought groups, and blending.  Each day she completes 3 practice exercises, and her TOEFL speaking mentor gives her tips to help her reduce her non-native speaker accent.  In the following video, A. completed some pronunciation exercises and got some feedback from her TOEFL speaking mentor Michael Buckhoff:

A. R., after joining an Online TOEFL Course, is working hard to improve his listening comprehension.

A.R. joined an Online TOEFL Course called “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” and he has been working hard to improve his listening comprehension.  In fact, A.R. is finding it hard to listen to TOEFL lectures and take accurate notes at the same time, so he sent a message to his TOEFL Mentor Michael Buckhoff:

Hi Michael,

I am practicing the listening in your system and in addition using some TOEFL listening test on Youtube, but I’ve had some problems.
When I am listening and taking notes, after when I go to answer the questions, my notes are not helping me much. Maybe when I am
taking notes I am writing down at the same time that the speaker is saying something, and that’s why I am not understand correctly the lecture.
I have practiced listening a lot, and in addition, based on your advice, listening Radio and TV, even though I cannot still figure out all of
information that I have heard. I was wondering whether the problem is my comprehension about the lecture, my notes, or because I am not
understanding clearly both questions and answer options. I would like to know if you have some suggestions about it; I need just to continue
taking notes, listening a lot and it will become easier? or I need to study in a specific way in order to tackle the listening section?

Thank you,

A.R.

Here is what  Michael said to A.R.:
