Jana stared at her TOEFL results in disbelief: (49) R=12, L=11, S=14, and W=12. She thought she had scored at least 75, but the results did not lie. After a few minutes of sulking and feeling sorry for herself, Jana knew that she had to score higher if she wanted to enter an English-speaking university in the United States, so she started searching for an Online TOEFL Course to help her reach her goals.
First, Jana found I-courses, which offered a lot of reading, listening, speaking, and writing practice tests, but it did not offer any pronunciation, vocabulary, or grammar skill-building exercises. She needed to build her basic English proficiency first before trying to take TOEFL-level practice tests. Second, she came across TestDen.com, which offered a 180-Day TOEFL course with a money back guarantee. It was inexpensively priced, but Jana was unclear how the web site would provide pronunciation, speaking, and writing feedback without costing her an arm and a leg. Finally, she found Thunderbird Online, which offered an Online TOEFL Course. The web site looked very professional, but Jana almost had a heart attack upon discovering that the course would cost her $750. That was just too much money.
Jana was about to give up her quest for an Online TOEFL Course when she found STEALTH, “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” an inexpensively priced course offering vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking. She liked the price of the course, and there seemed to be a lot of positive testimonials. Still, Jana was cautious and did not join the course. Instead, she made a comment at the web site. She posted her most recent TOEFL scores and explained her goals. Surprisingly, just a few hours later, founder, owner, and materials writer of “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” Michael Buckhoff sent her a video message along with a 90-Day TOEFL Study Guide to help her reach her goals.
“Wow!” Jana thought. “This TOEFL iBT mentor knows what he is talking about, and he has a tailored plan which will help me improve my TOEFL score 5-10 for each month that I use his course. And that was the ending of her deliberations, for, a few minutes later, Jana clicked the “Join” button, created her Pay Pal account, and made her payment. The next morning, Jana received a confirmation e-mail from Michael, who sent her her username and password so she could join her new Online TOEFL course.
