“Hey Michael,
I just got my TOEFL score – 113 overall, and I’m thrilled about it. (Writing/Reading – 29, Listening – 28, Speaking – 27). I want to thank you for your great tutoring – you really helped me a lot. I used your service for about a month, and that made all the difference – your input and guidance really helped me do all the right things.

  2. Hi,
    I took my TOEFL IBT and got a low score of 58.
    Reading-9
    Listening-14
    Speaking-18
    Writing-17.
    Can you please suggest me some plans and strategies to follow to get 90+.
    I am going to retake it within a month as I have very ample time.
    Thanks in advance Michael.
    Please send me a mail regarding to my quiry.

  3. Hi Michael,

    I am glad to inform you that I got a score of 109/120; reading-28, listening-27, SPEAKING -28 and writing-26. And, I believe that its your course that has led me to this score in just two months of preparations. This was my second attempt. In the first attempt I got 106, 23 in speaking.

    I wanted a score of atleast 26 in speaking, to have a physical therapy licence in USA. Most of my friends, who have already been preparing for licence exam, told me that it usually takes 4-5 attempts to reach a score of 26 in speaking section of TOEFL. But, I was lucky enough to have come across your course while doing some online surfing. And, that was the best decision that I took.

    For some of the readers who are still searching for some good online toefl preparation course, I wouldn’t give a second thought to refer ‘the 7 step system to pass the TOEFL ibt’ by Michael Buckoff. It is the best and the most affordable course that I came across and after starting my preparations, I never regretted my decision. Trust me guys, this is one of the most brilliantly designed course and you can’t find the kind of feedback that Michael gives, anywhere else. Comparing this with other courses, the first point I would mention is its cost. In just $38 a month you won’t get any teacher evaluate your responses and point out to specific mistakes in your answers. Yes, Michael does that. He evaluated one speaking response each day for me and pointed out the mistakes in terms of grammer, intonation, language use, sentence structure and organization. This helped me a lot to groom my overall english speaking as well as correct my mistakes in each of the speaking task. None of the other online courses would do that for you, unless you spent hundreds of dollars in one to one sessions. Besides that, the lessons mentioned in the pronunciation and speaking section of his course are simply amazing. We, the non-native english speakers are often confused what our mistakes were at the previous TOEFL attempt, despite being able to speak good english. His course was like an eye-opener to me. So, I don’t have any hesitation in saying that instead of going through the pain of failures and spending so much at each attempt, please try this course and you will see the results.

    Coming back to you Michael, I just can’t thank you enough for helping me achieve my aim. Please accept my heartfelt gratitude. I apologize for such a lengthy testimonial, but I can’t stop myself from praising your brilliant course and a wonderful teacher like you.

    Thanks,
    Manvi

  4. if i want to get high score on independent writing section, is it important to care for word limit? i can write up to 250words only

  5. i have toefl score total 34
    and these are subtotal below
    listening:8
    reading:6
    these are my score i just remembered

  6. Junsuk,

    Yes, you can do that. If you don’t mind answering a couple of questions so I can give you meaningfully help, I will recommend a TOEFL study plan best suited to your needs:

    1. What is your current TOEFL score, including subtotals?

    2. What is the target score you want to get, including subtotals?

    If you can answer these two questions, I will have a better picture of your overall academic English language skills.

    Thanks!

    Michael

  7. i’m adding to this question once more
    if i am not familliar with note-taking for listening, is it okay if i read a script aloud daily?

  11. Hi Michael again

    I am Paulina from Ecuador. I wrote you a couple of weeks ago but I can´t find your comments about my expectations. I took the toefl IBT last year in july but I just got 54 points. Reading was 10, Listening 8, Writing and Speaking 17. As you can see I have serious problems with listening and reading. So I’m interested in buying your course the next month because now I only have debit card and it does not allow me to purchase your course from here Ecuador. I´m getting a credit card to have access to your program but I need your recommedantions. It could be possible that I obtain 20 points in each skill in 5 months? because I need to have that score for master degree in US.

    Thanks..

I finished an english preparation course B2 level, but I don`t have good vocabulary skills and it`s my first weakness. I have different textbooks for TOEFL, but I am so confuse how to learn all of this. I read everyting on Your site- http://www.michaelbuckhoff.com/page14.html, but i stil don`t know what to do to prepare fot TOEFL. I need to get 90 scores minimum. Please for help!

    Thank You very much!

  16. Hi MIke,

    I have read your ad with interest. In a nutshell, here are my thoughts, subject to approval of management. I wonder if we could collaborate.

    I am in China kick-starting a TOEFL program for International high school, first year students 15/16 years old and have two years to do TOEFL score, must get 90 upwards. Its a mixed bag, MARKETING ALL WRONG TAKE ANYONE JUST TO START, of 16 kids, 3 no chances, 8 that can and 5 that MAY depending on Foundation Course I have instigated for all for 4 months, = total revision. The school needs structure, grid program of steps (STEALTH) and results as they need to roll this out much bigger once in place.
    My colleague has resigned after 3 weeks, disgust at mess, a serious great teacher…..

    So, I was thinking of looking for a Chinese TOEFL component to team, they are good at that, using the minimum 3, 6, 9 month FOUNDATION course for different groups to spark structure, grammar, reading comprehension and listening, holistic/language acquisition backdrop/introducing TOEFL and SAT skills.

    Another option would be to work with someone like you, provided we guarantee the connections, get some started as holistic rolls towards January/Feb (8), I work as back up here around you (they also want more depth), I would be interested in your opinion and advise for the 170 hours, roughly have about 800 hours, maybe more over the two years as TOEFL and SAT could share same hours in start.

    What are your thoughts, is it a viable option for continuing o study it, can you deal with it? Time zone wise?

    Just exploring another way and would love to have expert on board!

    Thanks

    Rene

  18. Hi Michael,

    I undertook my TOEFL IBT on May 12th. Thanks for the course lessons, they were very helpful. However, I forgot to unsubscribe to your course and automatically the paypal deducted $35 from my credit account. Is it possible to revert back my money. I am sorry about this inconvenience. Thanks!

    Hello Michael,

    I am Mrunalini. I took your TOEFL course a couple of months ago. I am stuck with reading and writing on the toefl ibt. In reading I get only 19 and on writing 22. On reading I am good at vocabulary and pronouns. My problem is with summary question, insertion question and inference questions. I did give my TOEFL couple of times, I am not able to understand where I am going wrong. On the writing I am able to do the independent task well. I am able to get 4.0/5.0 whereas on integrated task I am able to score only 2.5 to 3.5. I have been studying English all through my life. What should I do to improve my score. When I took your course I completed all the modules. What should I do next? Can you tell me some strategies on how to ace this exam.

    Hello Micheal

    recently I took my toefl exam and my scores are as follows.
    Reading 27
    writing 27
    listening 22
    speaking 23
    I need to get at least 26 in both listening and speaking sections to appear for my licensing exams. I prepared from barrons, kaplan, and ETS official guide. As per as the listening section is considered I did very well from these materials, even my speaking section is not that bad.But, I did not get good toefl scores from actual toefl, as I expected. I felt little bit difficulty in answering the listening section. My next toefl test date is on may 27th. Do you think I have enough time to practice, to get the required scores. Do you have any thing like crash course which suits for my situation. If you have any, How much I need to pay. Please let me know.

    I am E. from Turkey . I would like to ask you some questions about the TOEFL .

    First of all , I was awarded a scholarship to do my master’s degree and as you know I need to take the TOEFL to get an acceptance from the USA universities. I have been attending a TOEFL course for 4 months but I think , it is not an effective course
    to improve some skills such as reading , listening.

    Second , I will be in the USA in August and before arriving there I should choose the best ELS language center to attend . After surfing your site
    I saw , you were teaching in California State University . That is why I would like to ask you that if I choose your University , may I take a class from you or
    are you still giving TOEFL lectures there?
    Thank you in advance.
    Sincerely ,
    E.K.

  33. Dear Michael,

    I got 69 (R=17, S= 19, L=19, W = 14)on April 28, I will go to take new test on JUNE 17, 2012 Could you have any suggestion for me.

    Hi Michael,

    I am Brazilian and have studied hard in order to achieve the score to start PhD in Computer Science in Canada. I took the Toefl test on January 28th and achieved a low score of 55 (R = 10 L = 11, S = 14 W = 20). After that I realized that I should improve and work hard in order to improve my academic English background. After two and a half months I retook the Toefl on April 19th and achieve score of 74 (R = 18, L=16, S=18, W=22). I think that I could have achieved more than 18 in the reading section if I could manage my time better. In addition, in the listening section through the three first passages I could pick up the main ideas and details, however after third passage I felt tired and the passages were becoming more unclear for me.
    My goal now is to achieve at least 90, I think that if I put this goal in my mind it is more easy to reach 80. I have watched your videos and I think that your system could help me. Based on the last score what advice could you give me? I would like to reach this score in a period of three months.

    Thank you,

    Unfortunately I couldn’t study so regularly as I thought I would, but I decided not to transpose my first TOEFL exam to any other date, because I wanted to test myself and see how the test works in reality.

    I took a few TOEFL examples at home before the test and I found out that some of them were quite easy, but others were not. Usually I didn’t have so many problems at reading and listening section but as you cannot score yourself on other two parts it’s difficult to say what your scores in reality would be. I had a feeling that my biggest problem would be speaking section as I practice speaking the least (once a month or less) and also because I’m still not confident in my English when I speak with native or fluent speaker. I was also a little bit concerned about the duration of the whole test, especially about the speaking section as the preparation time is very short.

    So after taking the test I had quite a good feeling, I completed all answers and tasks, all the topics were also quite familiar to me. I was a little bit nervous at the beginning and at the speaking section but otherwise not so much, as I decided to take the test more like a practice than a real exam.

    My expectations before test were that I would score maximum 80 in total. On reading section maximum 22 points, listening 22 points, speaking 18 points and writing maximum 18 points.

    Just today I get my results and I am very excited about results! 🙂 I needed 88 points (22 per each section), so according to my results only writing section is below.

    R= 26, L = 22, S = 22, and W = 21 Total = 91.

    I’m at the first of your steps now and will go to pronunciations step in next days as I think that I don’t have so many problems with the vocabulary. Do you have any special suggestions for me?

    Thanks.

    hello professor, i need also your website that i can practice test or mini-test in reading and listening section because i did bad in these section in the official test. i am a graduate student and i need at least 79 over 120 in order to be admitted at any university in the united state. The main problem in the reading section is the questions that have specific details. Also, i always have a problem with time. i can not understand the main idea and complete all the questions (14) in 20 minutes. i need couple more minutes to get the main idea. in the listening section, i can not understand the main idea from one time. at home when i repeated the listening twice, i can answer most of the questions correctly. i don’t know if you can help me because believe me the test is so hard. I got like 69. Do i can get 79 three month later or no?. sometimes i feel that the TOEFL ibt test is for genius people and not for ordinary people.You know there are many difficulties in this test such

  42. Hi Michael,

    I need 100 points at the TOEFL Ibt to enter in a master course in Belgium. At my first test, in november last year, my scores were Reading 14, Listening 17, Speaking 20 and Writing 18, total 69. I keep on studying and I’m planning to do a second test next august. Do you believe will be enough time? I’ll appreciate if you could give some orientation.

    Kind regards,

    Daniella.

  43. hello professor, i need also your website that i can practice test or mini-test in reading and listening section because i did bad in these section in the official test. i am a graduate student and i need at least 79 over 120 in order to be admitted at any university in the united state. The main problem in the reading section is the questions that have specific details. Also, i always have a problem with time. i can not understand the main idea and complete all the questions (14) in 20 minutes. i need couple more minutes to get the main idea. in the listening section, i can not understand the main idea from one time. at home when i repeated the listening twice, i can answer most of the questions correctly. i don’t know if you can help me because believe me the test is so hard. I got like 69. Do i can get 79 three month later or no?. sometimes i feel that the TOEFL ibt test is for genius people and not for ordinary people.You know there are many difficulties in this test such as unfamiliar topics, complex structures, short time. Also, the person who are taken the test should have higher concentration in order to fill must of the question in the correct way. thank you for reading my letter and i hope that you can help me.

    I’m sultan from Saudi Arabia.
    I’m looking toward studying mechanical engineering at North Dakota University(NDU).

    And one of NDU’s requirement is high score in TOEFL at least 525/600.
    For your information, now I’m studying English language at EnglishTown Online School http://www.englishtown.com to improve my language and my level is elementary.:)

    My questions are:

    1/ one of englishtown’s teachers said to me no need to study toefl just learn English then do practice just to know how is it(questions method). Is that right?

    2/ Do you have plane for who is like my as mention above? What is it?

    Hi Micheal,

    Thanks for your response.

    I read your website, and felt very interesting…

    This test is very important to me and I am desprate to score more than 100. My challenge at present is reading and listening as you can see from my score…

    Couple of clarifications that I need to understand…

    1. Will I be able to improve my score upto 50 with reading and listening with your lessons?
    2. Do you provide any tips and tricks that will help me to improve my score.
    3. Do you charge as a whole for the entire package tutorial or there are separate fees for reading and listening only?
    4. How much do you think I can score with your lessons? any confidence level so that I’ll be on the edge of the preparation…

    Please advice.

    thanks,
    S

  46. My toefl scores are Reading=13, Listening=14, Speaking=25, Writing=26.

    My toefl exam is on April 27th this month. Is it possible to get some lessons on only reading and listening. Please help.

    Regards,
    Sprince.

  47. Anastasia,

    I can help you increase your writing score to 24 points, but it could take up to three months, and that is assuming that you are willing to work hard by completing all practice tests and studying all recommended lessons in my TOEFL course.

    Congratulations on your excellent speaking score. Almost every student in the world would love to have your speaking score.

    Hi Michael,

    I took the Toefl on march 23rd, and I got Reading:30, Listening: 29, Speaking: 24 and Writing: 29. I’m amazed by my results!! I needed 23 in speaking for a masters admission, and in 1 month I raised 2 points in the speaking section. I must admit that I couldn’t follow exactly the directions you gave me, but I’m sure that I would have got a 26 if I had. Your guidance have been invaluable!!

    Thank you very much for your help!! The results are really amazing!

    Hi Michael,

    I have heard about your fantastic program for Toefl preparation (S.T.E.A.L.T). Really I need such training specially for Writing and Speaking. Actually I would like you to concentrate on my Writing and Speaking skills for Toefl exam.

    The first issue I have now that I am from Egypt and I have no PayPal account, also It is forbidden for my country as far as I know. so Please send me details how can I send you the payment to create account for me.

    The second thing I would like to know from you, How much writing speaking questions I can perform in a day inside your program?

    Also how long you will take to send me the corrections of the writing and speaking questions after I submit my answers?

    Thank you very much and I hope I can find value from your program in enhancing my speaking and writing skills for Toelf exam.

    Best Regards,
    K.

    Dear Mr. Buckhoff.

    My name is N. and I just subscribed for your 7 steps system.

    I found your web page accidentally, when I was searching for TOEFL tips, literature, effective and not expensive online courses etc.

    I already reviewed your web page, some of your videos, learning tips and your 7 step system description to see how your course works. I also downloaded your free TOEFL vocabulary and get through.

    I decided to join your study guide because other courses were far too expensive for my budget and were not focusing on so many fields as your course (like pronunciation for example).

    I hope that you could help me to reach my goal, which is to get at least 88 points (22 per each section) on TOEFL ibt.

    I will have my first exam on 20th of April, which is quite soon, but I hope that if not achieving my magic 88 points I would come at least close to that and improve some of my weaknesses.

    I suppose that I can start as soon as my account will be activated. I payed from pay pal e-mail address.

    Sincerely,

    N.

    Hi sir,

    This is Chan from korea. I am supposed to appear for TOEFL exam on 14th of the next month. I am very upset because i already took the TOEFL exam and unfortunately got 60. I do not know what happened with my skill. I was very confident on test day but failed to secure the desired marks. This is my last chance to submit my result to the institution, on which i got conditional admission. Help me please, i need just 85 score. I am fulltime researcher and could not even afford high-priced tutorials. My previous score was like this.

    S=14 W=23 L,R=12

    I am anxiously waiting for your positive response.

    I need a real high score on TOEFL iBT and here’s why:

    I want to get a Master in Finance Degree in the USA and of course I want to get the best from the US education so I have a kind of big plans.
    The application deadline is December, 1 so I have to pass TOEFL in, probably, the second decade of October because I want to make sure my test will have been scored and delivered to the University of my dream by the end of November 🙂
    Due to my big plans and a lack of tons of money to pay for one of the TOP University I want to get a scholarsip which will cover a part of the fee. Thus my goal is about 115 points on TOEFL. The feeling of having a very difficult aim motivates and inspires me because once I announced my goal, I want to make a creditable showing.
    I haven’t passed TOEFL before but I had an actual test from BARRON’S book by mysefl. I compared my R and L answer with the keys and here’ the split: R25, L25. I had no opportunity to score myself the Speaking and Writing but my ex-school teacher scored me: Wriring 3.0, Speaking 1.5. => my score is about 81 pts.

    I just needed a guide who could direct my energy and now I hope that you can help me. I am going to find a lot of time for the preparation and proceed faster than an average student, this is possible, isn’t it? Do you think, is it a real goal to get so high score? Can you say approximately how are we going to use almost 7 months to make me prepared for TOEFL iBT?

    Thank you for your time.
    Sincerely,
    R.

    dear michael,

    I was searching the internet for improving my toefl score and I found your videos which made me really excited about your way of teaching. Up to now, I only took the toefl ibt test for once and my scores were 23, lis 20, spe 22 and wr 21 (total 86). I live in Turkey and I’m a military officer. I’m plannig to make my postgraduate education in US. In order to do that, I need to get at least 110 from toefl. I’m sure that I can get better scores but I need someone who is really professional to prepare me for the test in the shortest time. So,If I subscribe to your courses, will it be possible for me to get 110 from toefl ibt ?

    thanks…

    Michael, I am taking the TOEFL Ibt Test on Friday the 23rd. and have dedicated the next week to prepare myself for the this test. Full-time basis.

    Basically, before making a subscription on your programme, I would just like to know if I have time enough to get feedback from you on my performances?
    It is my plan to start right away, and to do a lot of excercises to send to you. Will I benefit from it, or is it too late?

    Looking forward hearing from you.

    Hi Micheal!

    Im glad I improved my score by 20 more points from 67 to 87 , I want to mention that when I had my first exam and I received my score I didnt know what to do, I was in shock and I thought what I am going to do? Then I joined your program and I heard everyone was saying that to do well in the ToeflIbt , we just have to follow your instructions and thats what I did and now I see the results after 4 months of intense work, another true thing is that you dont have to travel so far to get a training, you just have to joing the 7step system and thats it! Thanks Micheal! and as you always say: Ill keep on the good work! Probably my next target will be 100 points which I thought it was impossible before , but is not true , the truth is how far you can see and who is coaching you! Have a good one!

    I want to improve my writing still because I only made 15/30 when I took TOEFL last year.
    I want to know how fast will you review my essay and give me the feedback on video?
    Since I only have 14 days left, I want to write about 3 essays a day so do you think I should be your student since I only have a little amount of time?
    Thank you for your time.

    have settled automatic payments each month. Please let me know I already paid one month.

    Hey

    I am an Indian and living in US these days. Its been 6 months to be here.Recently in US, I gave my gre exam and scored only 143/200 in verbal section which is very low to get admission in the top us universities. Now i am planning to give a toefl. I recognize that I am so weak in each section of toefl. Indeed, I have only 2 months to prepare and i really wanna score high (atleast 105). Is it possible to get a good score, if i’ll work hard and join your 7 step system.

    Thanks

    Dear Michael,

    Thank you for this nice information. I have gone through your website and it is really very useful for taking preparation of TOEFL. But my situation is little bit different and tough also. Because without any pre-plan, suddenly I am going to face the test as I don’t have any other option to delay and I got only 10 days from registration to the day of test for preparation and this 4th is my test date. So within this short period of time it becomes very tough to prepare all the sections. Although I trying my best for it.

    Regards,

    S.J.

You are right, i really need to improve my intonation and up-size my vocabulary more. I also took the test last August last yr with a total of 66.

    Hi Michael,

    I would like to join your classes. I just took TOEFL IBT and I got 106 overall score (29 listening, 28 writing, 27 reading and 22 speaking), but my problem is that I have a conditional offer from a master in Manchester, and I need at least 23 in speaking. This is the second time I take the TOEFL, and I raised 2 points the overall score, but I got 22 in speaking again!

    I hope you can help me and tell me how can I join the classes.

    Hi Michael,

    I want some information about your S.T.E.A.L.T.H. 7-step guide. I appeared for the first time in the test on 11th Feb and scored 108 (R30, L29, S20, W29). I am a 29-year old MBA applicant from Bangalore, India, and this score is sub-par compared to the average scores of my peers at top US business schools that I am targeting. My main weakness has come out to be speaking section and hence I want to practice comprehensively for next 2 months. I am planning to retake the test in late April or early May.

    My target score is 115+ with at least 26 in Speaking (and other sections).

    Please inform me details about how this course can help me achieve the target. I would also like to know the average no. of hours to put in per day and whether the course can be tailor-made to suit my requirements e.g. special focus on speaking, etc.

    Well, this is my exam results:
    Reading 19

    Speaking 23
    Writing 24

    However, I am supposed to get these passing scores:
    Reading 21
    Listening 18
    Speaking 26
    Writing 24
    The area that need more care is speaking because of my
    pronunciation, stress, intonation, and nervousness. With Reading
    and listening, I feel more confident to improve.

  111. Hello Michael! I have scored 105 (R27, L29, S24, W25). Do you think is a good outcome? Actually, this was the first time I took the test and I got prepared by myself, it was a bit hard; too bad I didn’t find your program before! But I am going to tell my friends about it, they are looking formward to take the test soon.

  112. Hi Michael,

    I took iBT TOEFL October 2011 and my scores were

    Reading 19
    Listening 19
    Speaking 17
    Writing 24
    Total 80

    As my purpose is to pursue a PhD in one of the top US schools, I need to improve my score to at least 100. Is this possible with your product? And how long and how hard I shall work in order to obtain such score improvement? I am in a little hurry, targeting next Fall 2012 as my PhD start date. I already applied to 9 schools and awaiting decisions; however, some of these schools did not accept my scores, and asked me to retake the exam.

    Your advice is very much appreciated. Thank you so much.

    Hi Michael,
    I just got my toefl results today and I have 102 overall: R-27 L-30 S-24 and W-21.
    I am really happy about my speaking because I’ve never gotten more than 22. Although this results is still not good enough for me (my goal is S 26 and W 24), I am very satisfied that I have improved and the only reason is your 7 step system! Even more important is that I believe in myself again, and I am positive that with your service I can reach my goal; it is just a matter of time. I will ask toefl service to review my test because I had the max score in Independent essay and fair in Integrated so I do not know why is the overall result for W only 21.
    Here is the first question from my speaking test (I do not remember the second one):
    1. Your friend is moving to another city and he/she is concerned how to meet new friend. What advice would you give to your friend?
    Independent essay question: Do you think students should read only assignments that are given by their teachers, or should they read more than that? (something like that)

    Thank you!

    I got 23 in speaking and 21 in writing on the test 23rd, March 2012. I think I have a long way to go, I am about to give up.
    Do you think your study program could help me? I work at the pharmacy as an assistant so I don’t have much time to study.

    Sincerely,

    Hopeless Eun

    Hi Micheal

    I am a Physiotherapist and recently immigrated to Canada.

    I need a help to prepare for TOEFL to score 97 and speaking 26 to get
    license to practice as a Physiotherapist.

    I need to pass TOEFL. I have Cambridge book. However I feel difficulty
    in understanding of passages( ? Vocabulary & content). I am quite
    depressed and scared about toefl and sometimes It comes in my mind I
    can not do it…

    I was looking online and I watched your videos, which motivated me a
    lot. I am ready to be your student

    Now I was wondering if your 7 steps preparation course helps a
    candidate, whose level of english is at Intermediate level OR this
    toefl course helps a candidate whose english level is at college
    level.

    As my level of English is at Intermediate level…How would you advise
    me to pass the toefl.

    Thanks

    Nyame

    Hello Micheal

    This is Soomro from Toronto.

    I wanted to apply in Masters program in Engineering and for that I need Toefl with score of 100.

    I have decided to be your student. However I need some additional information.

    I went to library and got 04 books…… Kaplan IBT,

    Kambridge,

    Barons

    Official guide to toefl by ETS

    Now I am double minded which book I should go for in addition to your preparation material…( Please advise me the book which one closely resemble to your material as well as real Toefl IBT test)

    I understand all books are better. However I have only 03 months to prepare very well and score 100 and do not want to confuse myself and go back and forth with so much material.. I would not be able to read all 04 books as well practice all practice tests of your teaching program in 03 months, as I have to work for my living as well.

    How do I pay for your program and what your program offers..practice tests in all sections…are there Video lectures for tips and strategies for all toefl sections

    Thanks

    Best regards

    Soomro

  151. .I am sending a sample essay on “if u have enough money will u purchase a house or a business”.please read this and tell me which areas i can improve.
    .pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeee do reply me this is my humble request and that will be a lot of help for me.

    The options given either to purchase a house or to do a business is mainly based on the people and their way of thinking.If I were given the option by having the enough money and to choose between the two I would definitely prefer to buy a house.The reasons behind choosing this options are ,
    First of all to do the business one must need a good quantity of money and also to over come the hurdles that are faced in that field and although we over come the obstacles that are faced the outcome will be sometimes unexpected like it may be a success are a failure. If we face the success then we will be gained and show more interest to earn more. But if it is a failure then we lost every thing that has been invested and moreover we don’t have other option of what to do next because the whole some of money having is lost.

    But if we buy a house it will be our permanent assets and first of all we do have a place to live.Then we can search for the job for our livelihood and the house may also be a good property not only for present generation but also for the next generations.Here also there is a business in buying a house that is first with the money we have we can buy a house and after few months we can sell it if the price is high and again buy a house for that price.By doing this we can have a safe place to live and also the business can also be done.For the following reasons i Would prefer to buy a house.

    awaiting for an early reply

    hi michael,
    I was your previous student in 7 steps to pass toefle last nov-dec 2011…. I got may result on my toefle ibt exam taken Dec 17 2011….I got high scores( 24 reading,listening 23 and speaking 29)however my writing was only 22…. I did well in my integrated this time ,which I never able to do it right and my independent writing was the one that pulled me down ..I actually was not able to defend well the thesis and missed out the conclusion. Since my visa will expire this jan 2012,my plan is to go back to my country and comeback to USA maybe march 2013 to take toefle again…I need to pass my toefle before dec 2013 so my foreign pharmacy score will not be dismissed …my concern is my chosen date (march 2013)safe to make sure I will pass my toefle before 2013 of dec..? or do I need to take it earlier so just to make sure that I will not lack time? I had taken Toefle ibt 4x this 6 months and writing was my weakness still , but before was
    integrated ,now independent..What should I do to improve my score in writing? Thank you and God Bless.

    Jenny

  155. Dear Michael,

    I want to thank you for the great support and help with the preparation for TOEFL iBT. I have passes with a score even higher than I could ever dare to dream: 105/120. The distribution is following:
    Reading: 25/30
    Listening: 29/30
    Speaking: 27/30
    Writing: 24/30 (and if the topic of the independent writing was not so odd, I believe I would have scored even higher)

    I am very happy that I have chosen your 7 Step System. It was very comprehensive and useful for my case – only 3 weeks to prepare for the exam, comparatively good command of English and no experience with the format. What helped me most was your personal touch and recommendations on the speaking and writing. I felt you more like a personal English coach, than a standardized exam preparation service provider. In addition to that, I had the ability to set my own pace and program and pick and choose to work in the areas I had the biggest gaps in. This is a great advantage for someone with very demanding job and busy schedule.

    I believe that the $35 are money very well spent. If I were to hire a private teacher, it would have cost at least three times the price! Moreover, I am determined to continue working with you on my English pronunciation and especially on the intonation using your Speak Clearly Module, which, unfortunately, I just didn’t have time to finish.

    Keep up the excellent work in coaching people from all over the world and huge THANK YOU for everything.

    Hey Michael,

    I wanted to let you know that I received a 99 on my TOEFL test (taken on 17th Dec 2011). The split up is 24-reading, 25-listening, 26-speaking and 24-writing. This was my first attempt at TOEFL. I was aiming at around a 100/120 and I am very satisfied with what I have achieved.

    I was initially nervous about speaking because first, I was talking to the computer and second, I felt the pressure of time. STEALTH has really helped me gain my confidence in the speaking section such that my highest score is in the speaking section.

    I would really like to thank you so much for your help. I would gladly recommend ” the 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT” to all my friends who are going to take the test.

    Wishing you and loved ones a very happy and prosperous 2012!

    Yes, Thiago my online TOEFL course will help you. One of my recent students Ivana, who used my TOEFL service for three months, increased her TOEFL score from 89 to 103 and scored 27/30 on the writing section. I helped another student whose score was 37/120 increase his score to 62/120 in a little more than two months.

    Hello Mr.Buckhoff, I’m going to take the TOEFL on February, I need 79 points. Actually it will be my second time taking the test, my first attempt was in October, I was so nervous and I took just 72 (16 – 19 – 17 – 20), I’m sure I could have taken more than that. I’m a little bit more than a month from the test, so, do you think that your classes are really gonna help me to improve my english skills?

    Hi Michael! Like many others, I desperately need your help that is why I enrolled in your class, which is highly recommended and you’ve guided a lot of individuals struggling to pass the ibt toefl. I took the toefl thrice already and still short to get the high score in speaking and writing section.

    I’m a license PT from NY (my country of origin is Philippines) for 5 years and we moved here in Dallas 6 months ago to be closer with my family, since then I cannot get a license from the state because they need a high scores in toefl. I plan to take it again in a month because I need to get back to work and support my family.

    Do you think I’ll be ready by next month? I remember in speaking I had a lot of pauses and can’t think clearly because I’m so nervous looking at the time, and I ran out of time in independent writing. Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!- Dwight

    I was one of your student but I couldn’t achieve my target.
    I need reading- 21, listening-18, speaking-26, and writing- 24
    But with your coaching I scored high in writing 25. But speaking I scored 24 and listening I always used to pass
    and reading 19,that is my weak area.Now I am going to try one more time and wish this should be my last try.

    In my weak section like reading I am trying to concentrate more by increasing the reading speed.Trying to finish the passage
    with 20 minutes and go directly to the lines where they specify the answers. Speaking is a luck part. If I score all the other part,
    I have seen many people do revaluation and passing in the speaking. But I try my best to speak fluently, coherently……. But with writing part I am
    in a confused state. With you I learned the organization in an Essay as 1) Intro paragraph- write something general about the topic
    at least 50 words and write my thesis or main points in the last paragraph of the introduction. Later 3 body paragraph by explaining
    more detailed about the thesis points with example and finally conclude by including all three thesis points and finally with a comment or a question
    or our opinion.So totally it is 5 paragraph Essay. l

    But I heard from some other source a four paragraph essay is fine. Here the difference is don’t state the 3 thesis statement in the last sentence of introductory paragraph, instead state it in the 2nd and 3rd paragraph beginning and give more detailed example

    So it is a total of 4 paragraph essay..But I agree to the point that when we go so deep in example we get time only to develop
    2 thesis. There is no time to include one more thesis with example. I tried both ways in my exam. With your advise I scored 25 and with other source I scored 22.
    But with the other source I made a little bit confusion in integrated writing. Most of the time integrated writing gives two different opinion in lecture and reading.
    But that time the lecture was convincing the reading passage if you do some things you can make it correct what is specified in the reading. May be I didn’t use the
    word convincing. I used as contradict the reading. So I am not sure where I lost the mark with the second trail in that point. My second question is in the integrated part
    do we need to specify only the important contradictory statement about the reading passage and all the other example and explanations should be from the lecture.

    So finally my question is in writing whether a 5 paragraph eassy or a 4 paagraph essay is good to score more than 24. In integrated writing should we specify only the major contradictory statement in the reading and should we concentrate more and each points in the listening.

    I know it is a long and confusing letter. Hope you would be able to help me. I am planning to join with you once I took a date for the exams. Practicing with you nearing the exam helps me to have more confidence.

    Thanks

    Dear Sir

    My name is Noshad Azad and studying TOEFL ibt. I was watching your videos on you-tub quite often. I read about the 7 different areas of toefl ibt ( vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading, listening, writing and speaking). I am very much interested in this course of tofel which is about $35 for a month. I would request you help me for the preparation of tofel test. I would request you please give me discount on the purchase of this Toefl ibt course.
    Hope you will consider my request and give positive response.

    Thanks

  171. Jan,

    If you have taken English classes all your life and if you are only scoring 64-68 on the TOEFL iBT, I am afraid that your English language proficiency has fossilized, which means that your language errors have become a permanent irreversible feature and there is nothing I can do to help you. Fossilization occurs mostly due to attitude, motivation, and age.

    You have told yourself many times, and it is evident from your E-mail that you believe that you do NOT need to improve your English language proficiency. Therefore, no matter what you study or how you study, you will most likely not get any better than you are right now.

    I am sorry.

    Hi Michael my name Jan, I’ve taken the toefl exam twice already and my scores are still low. My required score is 83 but here are my scores
    Reading Listening Speaking Writing
    1st 9 14 20 21 =64
    2nd 15 15 18 20 =68

    English is my second language and I’ve taken english classes all my life. I did self review and did sample exams whicn on an average, I score 18 for listening and 23 for reading. I took ESOL class too for 3 and 1/2 months and it did not even help. I even used Barron’s essential words. I’ve been working in the US as an Intake Coordinator, taking calls and talking to customers and I never had a problem with my english. I don’t know what to do anymore and I’m wondering if your classes are really gonna help me to improve and pass the toefl exam.

    Thank you,

    Dear Michael,

    I’m Hasmik, a girl living in Armenia, who wants to study abroad.

    First of all let me thank you for all your efforts that you do to help students improve their IBT scores.

    I really need your help and support. Recently I passed IBT score and got very low score 89. I got reading-15, listening 21, speaking 28 and writing 25. As you see I really need to improve my reading section, which is really difficult for me. Which advises would you give me to improve my scores on the reading and listening part. I’m really good at listening section, I just was really upset after the reading section and it had its influence on the listening part. So I think, the only part that I really need an advice is reading section. Hope you can help me.

    Thanks in advance,

    Waiting for your reply,

    Hi, teacher.
    Im a student in Vietnam, and I need a TOEFL score 100+. I’m gonna take ur 7 step system, so let me call you teacher.

    I’ve finished your 1700 list on my own. My Reading and Listening are not bad; I can get 25 apiece. I want to join your system to improve my Speaking skill. But something are still not clear to me.

    When I join your system with 35$ each month, can I access the lessons in different parts randomly? Can I manage my time to finish the system. I mean, can I work hard and go faster on necessary parts to save time and money? Because, you know, I dont have much money.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you so much!

  187. Hi Michael,

    Your program is great and it has helped me to score over 100. Today, I have received my Toefl score, which is 106.

You and your colleague are doing a great job and through this program, I have improved my Toefl taking skills significantly. In addition, the way you motivate your students is amazing – it gave me extra confidence.

    Your program 7 Step Stealth system to approach the Toefl ibt is unique of its kind and enormously effective in the outcome!

    Reading Listening Speaking Writing Total
    18 22 23 22 85

    This is the second time I took the test. The first time was on September 2010, and I got 81. Then a year later I took the test again, and I got 85.

    In the reading section, I didn’t manage my time right. So I ended up leaving the last passage unanswered. That made me lose my focus in the other sections.

    My English skills are not that bad, I’ve been told that my English is almost perfect. The problem is I don’t know how to use formal English, neither in writing nor in speaking. In the listening section, I couldn’t keep up with the lectures while taking notes.

    I am going to apply for a university that requires a 100 score on the TOEFL.

    Can you help me ?

    Hi Michael,

    I found your website and I was quite impressed by the amount of positive feedback. I guess many people address their TOEFL issues to you, so here is mine: I have a full time job and just found out that I need to sit for a TOEFL exam on 9th of December. I have a very limited time to prepare and on the top of that I need a score of 89 or higher.

    I work for an American company here in Bulgaria, so I don’t have any issues with the language, at least when it comes to reading and listening. My concern is rather the format of the test and the type of writing tasks required for the actual exam. Can you coach me in this short time?

I should submit my new scores to my university which I joined recently. If I try seriously can I reach the score of about 100?? Will you help me to reach that??

    Dear Michael,

    I am a french resident in medicine ,specializing in public health, currently struggling with the TOEFL. I need to pass this test to be admitted at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

    I took the test two weeks ago, and I had a 99; the school is demanding the following scores :
    TOEFL Internet Based Test Minimum overall score 100
    Minimum written component score 24
    Minimum listening component score 21
    Minimum reading component score 22
    Minimum speaking component score 23

    Attached is my report score.

    I took the test yesterday again, thinking that gaining one point could be easily reached…but actually I am afraid that is not the case, since I found the listening section this time far more difficult! Plus, I am not confident with my reading, and my speaking is not strong.I

    Now I am really happy to discover your website which seems very comprehensive. The problem is that I am pretty busy because I am studying a master degree in statistics along with my internship. Therefore, I wonder how I can organize myself to study your lessons and make progress.

    I am used to listen to CNN when I am at home and to poadcoasts when I go to work . Twice a week, I can speak English with colleagues , but they are not English native speakers….I try to read as well, however, I feel that this doesn’t make my speaking improve…

    The faster I can reach the score required, the better it is, since I should apply by February 2012; the MSc that I am targeting is very competitive…
    I am also planing to go to London for an internship in the same institution next May, and my advisor is encouraging to pass the TOEFL as soon as possible.

    So, based on what you now from my “baseline” level, requirements and timeline, what would you advice me to do now? How much time should I give myself studying your program to meet the challenge?
    I would be grateful for your help.

    Thanks for considering my email.

    Best regards,
    Fadia

    Dear Michael,

    Now I’m struck in Toefl, for now I have very seriously terrible TOEFL experiences from those three exams. I have 92, 91, and 92 scores, respectively while the school requires minimum at 100. Undoubtedly, I become desperate, so I really need someone’s help. Then, I tried to search various online mentors due to the limitation of my time. In contrast to others, you are a very energetic and inspired instructor as I watch many of your responses on Youtube.

    To be honest, I’m thinking about enrolling your programs, but I still have certain doubts. Do you think whether or not I have a chance to improve my scores (because I plan to have the next exam on Dec 13 )? Sorry if my question doesn’t make sense. Unavoidably, being fail many times makes me so depressive. To help you have better analysis of my ability, I show you my scores of each part as follows:

    1st: R:24,L:23,S:20,W:25
    2nd: R:24,L:27,S:19,W:21
    3rd: R:23,L:27,S:20,W:22

    I’m looking forward to hear your reply soon.

    All best,
    A.P.

  199. Dear Michael,

    I passed TOEDL last year with score 96 l(27 in reading and all the rest were not good, the worst are speaking and writing), but I need 107 in iBT for my University. I am not an English native speaker.
    How do you think, could your program help me to achieve better results?
    And if you don’t mind, I’d like to ask an additional question. Your course is based on the interaction with you, you give comments and listen to the audio recordings, etc. But you also mentioned that you are a busy person. Is it possible that you would not have time to check the answers, recordings, etc.? Because in this case there would not be any sufficient effect from the course…

    Thank you for your reply in advance!
    Kind regards,

  203. Hi michael,

    There was an automatic payment done on my account about $29.99 USD which was due Oct 24, 2011. However there was an automatic cancelation due to no enough amount because I believe It was charging me for $ 35 USD after that to be exact on Oct 29, 2011 the automatic payment of 29.99 USD came up. Now the problem is that I still have not received the log in info because I was unable to log in due to the cancelation. Reply ASAP please? As my upcoming toefl test on Nov 26, 2011.

    Thanks,

  205. Hey, i need someone to evaluate my writing essays and make some corrections. Please tell me what adress should i send it to?

  206. Hello Micheal :
    I’m writing this comment to tell you that finally I passed Teofl Exam with a magic 26 on the speaking section and 29 on the writing section, and that would never happened without your help and hints . Actually , I want to tell other subscribers about something weird happened to me during my trials to pass the toefl exam . I started to take Toefl exam last year depending on my knowledge and without any help , everytime i scored 23 on the speaking section and 22 on the writing section , after the fourth time I decided to be one of Michael Buckhoff’s students , I signed up for his service for 3 months , and I did Improve my speaking and writing skills and I was sure enough I will do it this time.So, i decided to take the Toefl exam again , but the shocking news were that I scored 24 on the speaking section and 27 on the writing section( which means 5 points more due to Michael’s help) , I took the exam again and I scored AGAIN 24 on the speaking section and 29 on the writing section , and that was unbelievable , because due to the instructions and the way of scoring , i was sure that I am qualified to pass the speaking section , so I ordered a RESCORING service for the exam and the ETS center DID CHANGE my speaking score to 26 . SO , if you are sure that you did perfectly on your exam , and you did take these lessons with Michael for enough time to finish all the 7 steps , DON’T HESITATE to do rescoring for your exam , they are human rators and they did mistakes . And finally , wish every TOEFLer good luck .
    🙂

  207. Ahad,

    Eat your favorite meal tonight, say your prayers, and get a good night’s sleep. Bring a power bar or power gel so that you can eat it during the test to keep you energized when you get to the speaking section. Do not study TOEFL tonight!

    Good luck!

    Michael

    I took a test on 14th october and my scores are Reading – 16, Listening- 22, Speaking -24 and writing-22. I always pass in listening. May be
    I need a fair score in listening. I need 21 for reading, 26 for speaking and 24 for writing. When I subscribed your service on March, you didn’t much materials for reading.
    I like to know your new service.

    Thanks

    Hi Michael,
    I am using your courses for the past one and half month.I feel i have improved very much and all of your classes are very useful. The six exercises to improve writing video is quite amazing.Your presentation is lucid and apparently increased my interest towards english language apart from my Toefl ibt prepartion.The way you handle the language and the tips you give for the students are really impressive.Thankyou very much for making the hard things easy to understand.

    Hi Michael,

    first, I want to thank you for your message. I am really happy that you have answered my email. Besides, I got really valuable advice from you.

    Actually, I do not read any magazine and newspaper because I work 6 days a week , and I have a 6 year old child. In addition, I work for russian people and talk to them only in russian. This is the big disadvantage. But, I want to start reading newspapers from tomorrow.

    I think my weakness is lacking of phrasal verbs and impressions .My vocabulary is not bad. But , I have to improve my writing , listening , and reading. So , which course do you suggest me to take? Maybe you have a section which I can learn some impressions and phrasal verbs .

    Thank you,
    Sara

  229. Hi Michael
    My name is Rana. I took the TOEFL test in September and I got the score of 87. I need overall score of 89 and the break up as follow:
    Section: I got in Sept. test: My Goal:
    Reading: 21 21
    Listening: 22 18
    Speaking: 23 26
    Writing: 21 24
    Overall score: 87/120 89/120

    As you see I passed the reading and the listening score within the minimum score requirement in the reading but my speaking and writing skills are below the requirements.
    My questions are:How many months do you think I need with your 7 steps program to achieve my goal?And which steps I should focus the most? Or any other advice.
    By the way, my next TOEFL exam is in Oct14th. Do you think I should cancel that test?
    Best Regards
    Rana

  230. Dear Michael,

  231. Hi Michael,
    I am willing to pursue my master program next year and take ibt toefl in January next year too. So I still have 3 months left to prepare. I wish I could score minimum of 100. But since this will be my first time to take ibt, I need your suggestion about how I could score 100 through your program. I have taken ielts test before but I only scored 6.0. I read from many websites comparing between ielts and toefl and got conclusion comparison of 100 ibt are 600 for pbt and 7.0 for ielts. That means I have got to work harder to reach the 100 ibt. Please, I need your help and suggestion.
    Thank you very much for reading.

  232. Hi Michael,

    I am just wondering how many lessons does 1 month includes? Can I complite all 7 steps you said? Clearly, is 1 month enough to take a good score? I am planning to take an exam for next month. I have to take 80/120. Please help me!

  233. Somshart,

    You are welcome. I was delighted to have you as one of my students.

    Thank you very much for your great website and thoughtful reflection upon my information sent to you earlier. I have tried your excellent suggestion during the past month and achieved some progress and confidence. However, I am still waiting to receive the reports of the last three trials.

    Leaving TOEFL, I will now have to move on to my other professional exam in October which would still involve conversational skills. What I can confirm is I am happy that I found your website. I have benefited from your teaching experience, your endeavor and good attitude in teaching students. I will highly recommend any peoples who wish to learn English skills, no matter they are taking TOEFL or not, to learn various English skills from you.

    Hi Michael,

    This is Baker, from Philadelphia. It has been 3 months now, since I started to be prepared for the ibt Toefl. Recently, I found your website. I have been following and listening your iBT videos from the U-tube for almost 2 weeks now. To me, you look to be very experienced and nice teacher. Fortunately, some of the steps you have been recommeding I have already went through with them by my own prior watching your videos.

    I have very little time before I take my ibt toefl. I am very willing to register to your 7 steps course, but I am afraid to see I have very short time before I take my ibt Toefl, and most possible the time would not be enough to finish all of your steps. As of now, the only or specific thing that I miss from my knowledge is
    -How quickly to make or think about main ideas/main reasons and their supporting points that will impress the listner or reader.
    This is my critical problem. I believe this is very important point to go through in order to do well in questions 1 & 2 of speaking (independent tasks), as well as question 2 of writing (intergrated question)

    If you think that some kind of partial payment will be needed in order for you to be able to help me on this piece of information, then I would not hasistate to do so.

    Please Michael help me from the bottom of your heart to get this kind information.

    Thank you ver much.

    God bless you.

    Baker.

    Beginning with vocabulary, you can finish 7 Step System one step at a time. Three months will give you plenty of time to finish my 7 Step System, including taking my pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice tests. In all, I have more than 200 TOEFL lessons in my 7 Step System.

    Dear Michael,,

    Fascinated to learn how much TOEFL preparation tools have evolved within the last few years.

    As I am quite often traveling around the world due to my work, I will most likely be taking TOEFL test in different countries depending on my duty station in coming months.

    My question may sound somehow silly, – does the result of TOEFL test vary depending on the country we take the test? Is the test scoring centralized at one center or decentralized at country office? Would there be any tendency that score is over/under rated considering the average proficiency of the test takers in each country (evaluators tend to give higher score where national level is relatively lower…)? It would be particularly the question for speaking and writing part, as these are not scored based on multiple choices.

    Thank you Michel for your advices.

    Hi Michael,

    I gave TOEFL exam on Aug 14th and had a score of 90
    Reading – 20
    Listening – 23
    Speaking – 22
    Writing -25

    This was first time I am attended test.I would like to get more and planning to give test again in a month because I don’t have ample time.

    Here are my comments on my previous test performance( identified by myself )

    Reading – 5 passages, so not able to concentrate on 4th and 5th passage. I guess most of the wrong answers are from these passages.
    Listening – concentration diverted in two passage, so eventually paid for that
    Speaking – Voice is shivering, pace is high and some pronunciation problems,intonations problem and not able to convey idea clearly
    Writing – Independent – Idea not generated well and simple vocabulary used
    Integrated – Repeated same kind of phrases of lecture

    I would like to ask you how can I prepare for a month effectively to get a score of 100 or more.

    thank you very much in advance

I’ve heard that many students pay 60 dollar to rescore their test , Do you think this may change any thing ? speacially that i felt that i did so bad in question 1 and 5 , Question 1 score is fair (2.5-3.0) while question 5 score is good(3.5-4)!!!

    Hi Michael,

    I have an acceptance to BYU that will be automatically canceled if I cannot meet the university requirement on the TOEFL test until Septembet 12, 2011. I took my TOEFL test on July 23rd and got 92. My scores in all sections except speaking one, which is 20 instead of 22, are higher than the university requirements for them. My scores on reading, listening, speaking, and writting are 25, 25, 20, 22, respectively. My speaking score is 2 scores below the university requirement on this section. My last chance to be admitted to BYU is taking the test on August 27th with high score.
    My scores on reading, listening, speaking, and writting are 25, 25, 20, 22, respectively. I greatly appreciate your help on speaking section.

    Hello, found your service in the net and I have no enough time to prepare myself for the iBT,
    therefore defenetly need your help in writing essays. Also I found myself difficult to retell whatever I just have read, the problem is that I can’t weave the words together in a short time.
    Although my apprehension is fine it appears to be difficult for me to find the right word and make sense in expression especially in the intergrated tasks at speaking and writing sections.
    Could you, please, estimate my chances to the time limit of one month?

    thank you

    I studied for Toefl for like one or two months and I received 105.
    But I have to get over 110 and I feel like I don’t have the right skills
    for speaking and writing section.

    My score is Reading:29 Listening:28 Speaking:23 Writing: 25

    I thought I did really well on writing because I wrote my thoughts clearly(I guess)
    and I had the right reasons for the support. I got both good good but I still received 25.

    And for speaking…. I don’t know. I was cut off two times and for one question
    I paused for about 2 seconds because I didn’t know what to say.

    What should I do ? 🙁

    No, there is no free version. Teaching TOEFL online helps me to pay my bills and earn a living so that I can support my family.

    Hello sir,
    here i have a lot of problems with my writings for toefl ibt; i feels the writing section to very hard. and i have to score more than 100 marks in toefl ibt.
    Here I have a request you to examin how I did this jeneal essay.

    From the questian it is clear that there is to type of families extended and nuclear families.In extended families there grandparants and many other relatives are included. In my view the extended familys are preferable than nuclear families.
    Being alone is not possible for man; man is a social animal. That’s why man forms families and living together. When a child (or a man) belongs to a family he feels that as the most safe place, I have such kind of mentality. If we are in a big family we feel more safeness, that’s the first reason for my opinion. In second,many of morals can achive from a big family such as sharing, mercy etcetera.
    Nowadays the nuclear family is the trend in my locality every one belives that is more comfortable; in fact I too belons to a nuclear family. I think that is the main reason for many social problems. For an example the eviles in society, nowadays that is incrasing very quickely i think the reason is,the main reason is the change in the family set up. For is the past people sed to live together in big families, during that time this kind of social evils were very less. Because there were many sisters, brothers, friends everything was many so the people knew how to be to society, the families were the teachers for them. because the problems in that society was very less than that of our’s.
    For this change i think the main reason is the change in the family set up. In past the children grew up in a extended family therefore they can consider others, and their feelings; they couldn’t hurt others. but today, children grewing up in nuclear families, they haven’t more attachment with their relatives. While grew up, they won’t consider others as I mention before,they couldint do so.
    I strongly prefer extended families for the reasons i have mention above.

  300. Yeloumar,

    Great job!!!!! I am glad that you met your goal. It was a pleasure having you as a student.

    Hi!

    I am writing you to inform you that my TOEFL score this time (July 23) was not bad.
    My goal was 80, and I asked you before I subscribed to Better TOEFL score if I
    can achieve this goal within 2 weeks. You said to me, it was possible.

    Well, the score I got after the test I took on July 23 is 79 ( 19 in reading, 16 in listening, 20 in speaking, and 24 in writing). On the paper based test, 79-80 corresponds to 550.

    If I had known your webside early, I am pretty sure I would have done better. Anyway, I think I have achieved my goal.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hello Michael,

    My name is Tural. My TOEFL exam is very soon , and i would like to take your classes early as possible as i can. I just want to review my TOEFL skills and i have just 15 days to do that.I am sorry but i have never heard about you before. If it is possible please keep in touch with me as soon as you get this.

  303. Ok, so here are some suggestions for those of you trying to get a good score at the TOEFL iBT. This might be quite long so i would like to apologize in advance.

    I’m 23 years old, i’m from Brazil and i currently live in its capital city, Brasília. I’ve just graduated in International Relations (International Studies in some countries) and i’m aiming for an MBA in International Business and/or Foreign Trade.

    The most important thing in my opinion is to be in contact with the English language on a daily basis, especially through newspapers and magazines. I’ve been studying English for quite a while now but nothing helped me as much as reading books, articles, news and texts by myself. Get a good dictionary to improve your vocabulary. If you manage to do that on a daily basis, 6 months prior to your TOEFL test should be enough. So, let’s move to the test itself:

    In the first half of the test you’ll have to report a bunch of information and specific details. So even if you’re able to understand everything you also need to memorize lots of stuff. So make good use of your notes, especially for the Listening Section.

    READING SECTION: Use your notes and try to summarize each paragraph of the passage in 4 or 5 words at most. That will be important for you to remember the main ideas of each paragraph and it should make it easier if you want to find any specific information. You’ll lose too much time trying to read everything again, so try to create some sort of “map” or reference. Again, here the notes will have to be brief because the clock will be ticking for you. Here’s an example; if the passage is about, say Leonardo daVinci, do something like this:
    Paragraph 1 > Leonardo, birthplace, childhood
    Paragraph 2 > First paintings, influences
    Paragraph 3 > Most famous painting Mona Lisa
    Paragraph 4 > Final years, legacy

    LISTENING SECTION: The key here is to make good use of you notes. Try writing down as much information as you can while the conversation is going on, but be careful. Try to pick the overall ideas from what you’re hearing. Also, some parts are a dead giveaway of what the questions will be like. So don’t forget to note things like:
    1 > The person’s own opinion about a certain topic
    2 > The order in which events unfold (sometimes it could be scrambled)
    3 > Detailed information or description of a certain program or object
    4 > Comparing or contrasting two or more things
    Remember, these small details are contained within the most important questions, the ones worth 2 or 3 points!

    10 minute brake (Take a chocolate bar with you, it helps a lot lol)

    There’s something very important about the following sections: Be aware that in some cases you’re asked to deliver your own opinion and sometimes you’ll have to report what you’ve heard or read. So read the instructions carefully and do as requested. Also, avoid at all costs repeating “like this… like that”, “things”, “stuff”. Get a good understanding of transitions and improve your vocabulary. You must realize that sometimes it is better to get organized and have some sort of plan than speak with a perfect accent or write every word correctly. Practice here is fundamental. Remember, in the second half of the test you’ll be asked to deliver and to create content rather than simply “understand” what is presented to you.

    SPEAKING SECTION: To improve your pronunciation and accent try watching american movies or news channels (those helped me a lot) and pay attention to the way americans (or british, whatever) speak. A great and funny example is “Internet”. While most people will say ‘inTERnet’ most americans will say ‘inNERnet’. Things like that. But the most important thing for me here is; try to come up with a “stock”, basic answer. Something pre-conceived or previously rehearsed. If you’re asked what is your favorite book try something like this:
    Introduction > My favorite book is _______ for 3 main reasons.
    1st reason > It was the first book i ever read and it got me interested in literature.
    2nd reason > I did a school project about it and i got a good score out of it.
    3rd reason > I personally met the author and he was very polite.
    Closure > For those reasons i would say that ______ is my favorite book.
    Use your notes to plan and try to structure your response. Practice a few times before the test and memorize some transitions such as “although”, “therefore”, “however”, “moreover” and use some uncommon words for vocabulary.

    WRITING SECTION: Basically the same thing as the previous section. Try to organize your responses in a certain pattern, separating very clearly introduction, main point 1,2 and 3 and wrap up with a conclusion. Try to do each part within a single paragraph so it becomes even clearer. In the first part of the Writing, you will you have to compare a reading passage with a lecture. Try to take notes into 2 columns (one for the text and another for the lecture) and 5 lines (intro, point 1, 2 and 3 and conclusion). If you do that it will be easier to compare both the reading and the lecture and your paragraphs will be very organized, in order and easy to understand. Once again, divide each section in one or two paragraphs at most and make use of transitions and some different words. For the second writing task you can use your personal beliefs, preferences and opinions, but the structure should be similar.

    So that’s it. I hope it was helpful. Good luck everyone and thanks again Michael for the opportunity.

  304. Hello again Michael.

    First of all, thank you so much for you response. I feel pretty confident now and i’ll take your advice and focus on other things other than my TOEFL.

    Second, you asked if i’m willing to leave some comments and suggestions for other students to improve their English and also talk about my background and i certainly am. Should i email you personally or should i post everything right here in this section?

    Thank you.

  305. Nada,

    Congratulations on reaching your goal of 90 on the TOEFL iBT. Using your Pay Pal account, you will need to unsubscribe. In the search box at your Pay Pal account, type in the words “how to cancel a subscription” so that you can get details on how to cancel this TOEFL service.

    How does it feel to not have to worry about the TOEFL iBT anymore?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Hi Michael. I replied to your last youtube video entitled: “i only have 3 weeks left to study for the second Toefl test” with a question. Here’s the internet link:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wu3krIz-wHY (i’m user tpferraz88)

    So i’m going to reply that same question here for you, just in case:

    Hi Michael. I just received my TOEFL iBT scores and i got 109 out of 120. Reading 25 / Listening 26 / Speaking 29 / Writing 29. I know 100+ is enough for most american universities so my question for you is:

    Should i spend even more time trying to get an even better score or should i be confortable with 109 and focus on other parts of my application?

    I know this question seems kind of silly but i was told that places like Wharton and Berkeley for example require an average of 112.
    Thanks!

    Your S.T.E.A.L.T.H. program rocks. By the way, are you a fan of aviation and stealth aircraft? I love such things so i guess we have that in common. Your image references to the B2 spirit are very nice. Gotta love that bird!!!

    Anyway, hope you answer me.

    Hi Michael,

    After reading many online review comments, I am pretty much convinced about your Stealth program and determined to subscribe it.

    However, I am concerned about time period I should invest to get 100+ score. I understand that Toefl score and preparation time is a relative figure and varies from individual to individual. But, can you please provide me an average figure for Indian students? This information, I will consider as a benchmark and then plan my study.

    As of now, I plan to stay subscribed for two months time. During the subscription period,I can invest 2-3 hours daily. Will it be adequate to achieve desired score?

    Best Regards,
    Pradeep

    How is it going?

    I’ve already started your program for 2 days. For this moment, I’m mainly focusing on reading and vocabulary building.

    For reading practice, I’m using the network called “Engaging English”, which is recommended by ETS. I’m wondering if I need to do some extra practice like Barron or Cambridge programs for TOEFL iBT preparation.

    In addition, can you give me some advice on how to follow your 7 steps? Is it necessary to strictly follow your 7 steps from one to another? Or I can do some of them at the same time?
    Best,

  323. Dear Michael,

    My name is Carlos Serrano. I need to take the TOEFL iBT in two months, and I need to get 90 minimum. My actual English level is around B2 CEF (Common European Framework). I have scheduled 20hours a week during this eight weeks to study the TOEFL iBT. My questions are:

    Is this time enough to get 90?

    Are your lessons enough to get it, or need I other material (i.e. Books, ohter lessons, CDs, teacher…)?

    What do you recomend me?

    I need your answer as soon as possible, because the eight weeks have just begun.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Kind regards,

  327. hi michael,
    I hope it’s not too late to ask you about my problem with my subscription with jason renshaw. I subscribed to him last july 10,2011 but until now i haven’t received any confirmation from him.i emailed him many times and even called him but he did not responds. I don’t know what to do, i wanted to refund my money so that i could enroll in your services. If from the start i knew about your site i opted to subscribe to you because i know that your a genuine person. I do hope that Mr renshaw could resurface and answer all the allegations against him. Pls michael if u know mr renshaw could you voice out this concern. I know a lot of students are on the same plight with me. I’ll be giving my exam this august but because of what happened i am bothered & my momentum to study was disrupted.

    Hi Michael: I want to share very good news with you. I just got the TOEFL scores and here they are: Reading: 21; Listening: 23; Speaking: 24; Writing: 27. Total: 95.
    The university was asking me for 93 and minimum 22 for speaking and writing. So, I got it! Even though reading was not great; I was extremely nervous and it was the first one. I spent more time than I should and could not work properly in the last reading.

    I want to thank you for all your feedback and information provided in your course. I was able to get this score based on your guidance and feedback. I studied just for two weeks. I could not believe that I was going to be able to get the score in the first attempt. You are a wonderful teacher and your system is awasome.

    My monthly registration finishes today but I would like to study with you for a while, specially in speaking and writing. Should I stay with the 7 Steps System or would you suggest a different course to improve my speaking and writing. I am a psychoterapist, so I am really interested on doing it the best I can.

  337. Hello Mr. Buckhoff,

    My name is Sul Ki Kim who is Korean and currently staying in the U.S.
    I’ve been here almost 5 years. I have no experience of taking the iBT before.
    However, I have taken the SATs four times. My highest Critical Reading score was 510 and Writing was 650.
    The SATs were the my first standardized test I have taken in the US.
    So after listening to your lessons and searching ways to do well on the iBT, I decided to leave a comment here.
    I got my prep book which is from ETS and two vocab books.
    I thought getting books would guide me as a indicator to success but I am so lost.
    Would you give me some advices for me not to spend too much money and waste time?

    Dear Micheal My Teacher,

    First of all I’d like to apologize from you because in the previous email I forgot to mention my name ….

    And before couple days i sent you the same email but unfortunately you didn’t answer so I recompose the same email to make sure you’ll receive it.

    I am Ahmed Khoswan and I want to ask you some questions about your program .

    1- How long does it takes to complete all of your lessons…??

    2- how can I access your lessons after I purchase the program in other words for i have to put user-name and password and the enrollment key is it on a place on your website or on the pay pal storage although i told you that i would transfer money through the western digital that it’s like fastest money transfer method over the world and it has no storage just it’s a method to transfer money…

    3- plz I want to know your account number and the fullest name of the bank and the full address of it ??

    4-What about the vocabulary section will i learn vocabulary subconsciously in other words do i have to memorize them or only all i have to do is to listen and it’ll stuck on my brain effortlessly ?

    5- in speaking system what is the magic methods that help users to get 25 even 27 on TOEFL speaking section?

    6- on the reading section what’s new is it like reading passage and analyze it or there is different ways that helped user to earn 26 on reading section ??

    7- could I pass an Academic IELTS exam (international English language test system) or it’s just for TOEFL .

    I hope I am not bothering you by asking tons of questions.

    Please answer me as soon as possible because time flies and I don’t have enough time to enroll in which program I’d planned.

    Thanks A lot
    Best regards
    Ahmed

    I took SAT last year and I got 85 in total. Specificially, I got 25 on writing, 22 on Listening, 20 on Reading, and 18 on Speaking. Now I want to improve my score to at least 100. I have about 2 months before the next exam but I can only spend 1-2 hours per day for studying. What is the probability that I can achieve my goal if I follow your program?
    Please give me some advice. Thank you!

    Hi Michael,

    I want to be your student.
    I want to allocate 5 to 6 hours of study on my TOEFL exam preparation every day. Not sure where to start, please advice.

    My score is terrible. Examining my English skills in general puts me in an intermediate level. I need to be in a good or high level.

    Your didactic way of preparing for the TOEFL gives sense. I guess, I have a high shortage of vocabularies. I started working on it. Here is the website I am working on right now. http://www.toeflvocabulary.com/

    Also, if I dedicate so much hours on study and follow your advices, how long will take me to sit for the exam to score ” high” scores?

    Your help is appreciated and hope to hear from you soon.
    Hadas

  348. Cristian,

    Hi Michael
    Thanks lots for your quick response
    from my side, I’m gonna subscribe next Saturday but i want to ask about the service which you provide. As i understand it is online guidance, isn’t it ? So if this is true, no material will be sent to us to our address. I will be having only 14 days and I think online service is all what I need. My problem is when clicking order for completing payment, I found some information such as state, zip or postal code which we It can be filled. so can i skipped this step or what should i do and even for the street address it is not that details ( we have only streat name ) Yemen address system is weak somehow. But if there is nothing to be sent to us why should I fill it. If it is a necessity can POBox be a replacement
    please advise as I need to ensure my subscription by Saturday
    Good night my teacher

    Hi Michael
    Hope you are fine. I’m very pleased to know about your service trying to help the students anywhere to get the required mark. let me tell you about myself. I’m an ambitious girl despite the difficulties which can be faced in my community. With the hard working I got a scholarship offer from the British council to study international development in UK. I had an exam at 9th of April and I got 70 and I retake the exam at 14th of May and I got 81(reading 18, listening 20, speaking 23, and writing 20)
    The mark I need is 90 and in some of the universities is 100. I have been communicating with the universities to see if can they provide me with unconditional offer provided I enroll with one of the presessional courses but the problem is because of a new law issued last month so i can’t even apply for a visa to study the presessional courses unless I got 22 in each section.
    I’m supposed to retake the exam as soon as possible but because of the current security situation in Yemen which i think you are aware of It has been delayed to the end of the month. I’m not sure if I’m still having time but I will fight for the last second. I had explained my circumstance to all universities given me conditional offers.
    I need your help in getting the required mark. i know that the time is not in enough but I have strong ability to study and practice without stopping.
    I got to this website and I do not how can i start it
    Please advise

  354. Ketkeo,

    Hi Michael,
    I’m going to be your subscriber soon, maybe within this week or next week, i would like to ask you about my internet connection that for example whether i can access the internet just only checking, not open web cam like a real conversation, is it ok ? or your program provide only talking through face to face conversation ?
    i’ve watched your video in YouTube and i understand even though you explain via YouTube device or other video devices. As I have mentioned that i still have only 4 moths more for my thesis defense, but before that i think around middle of Aug i will take a exam because i already wrote the application form for examination. By the way, it means i still have almost 2 and half months for preparation. Do you think i can make it ? i’m sure that i can spent the time one to two hours per day, and my schedule is only night time(after 9pm) Philippines’s time.
    thanks Michael

    Thank you Michael,

    I have read about many of your materials on the
    the TOEFL iBT, and I may say there are very interesting.
    I have taken the test for three times, but my best score is
    still 67. 16 on the reading, 16 on the listening, 17 on the speaking
    and 18 on the writing section. I always prepare intensively for
    the it, using about 90% of my time. I have already gotten an
    admission in a graduate program, but I still need to get a good
    score on the test before next Fall. Actually, I have been placed
    in an Intensive English Program since January within an University here
    in the US. In addition to that, I have enrolled a TOEFL class, and up to now
    I have not still scored well on the test.
    My next test is scheduled for June 10, 2011. WHAT KIND OF ADVICE
    DO YOU SUGGEST ME, IN ORDER TO SCORE WELL NOW?

    I will be happy to read your reaction to my concern.

  366. Michael,
    I am from Bangladesh, I want your help for getting my toefl score. I have admission in CA now they ask for TOEFL score 80 above. can you please help me. my email:anwar405z@yahoo.com

  367. these are very useful for everyone specially for those who study English as the second language (ESL)

  368. Michael,
    Thanks for all your guidance. I passed my Toefl with a magic score of 26 in speaking. I was subscribed to better toefl scores.com for three months. It helped me to improve my reading and writing skills. I scored 28 in writing,with the help of your comments.

    Although, your suggestions on organization and unity helped me to improve my speaking skills,but from my experience I can say that we need to give a specific example for atleast one point from our organization in the speaking. The example should impress the listeners.
    Moreover, the integrated writing, should follow the same organization like independent task.

    Thanks for your valuable suggestions and goodluck for your students.

    Hi Michael,

    I am E.G., a physical therapist from the Philippines. I have seen some of your videos from Youtube and I’m really interested to be one of your students. You see, I have taken the toefl before and I had problems with the speaking and writing sections. I need 26 for the speaking and at least 24 for the writing. I really need to pass this for my state board exam. My expected employer in the US is already rushing me to take it again in one month time but I told them that I’m not yet ready. I emailed you to ask if you can get me ready for the toefl in a month? Or should I need more time? Please advise me on this so that I will know what to say to my employer. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you and God bless.

    With all of your speaking and writing practice tests that you took at Better TOEFL Scores, you sure made me a very busy man, but I am proud to have been able to cross online paths with you. A teacher is only as good as his students. And you are a great student.

    Hi Michael,

    I took toefl the past 15th April. I got 81 point, reading 25, listening 17, speaking 18 and writing 21.

    I have to get 100 points and my next exam is 17th June.

    Dou you think that if I register with your method, I could obtain 100 points at least?. I am full-time for this goal.

    I am from Spain, and I haven’t had long experience abroad. My worst skills are, like you have read, listening and speaking. I think that in writing I could improve my score if I understand better the lecture (integrate task), since my essay was high.

    Thanks in advance

    Thank You

  386. Junaid,

    Have you thought about subscribing to my 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT? To start, (after you subscribe) I recommend that you study my listening and reading lessons so that

    1. You can develop an effective system to organize your notes.

    2. Understand all the TOEFL iBT reading question types so you know how to identify and answer them quickly.

    3. Take a pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice test and get back feedback from me.

    With a little practice and guidance, you should be able to eliminate the problems that you are having.

    Good luck to you!

    Hello,

    My teofl IBT score is 73 and I want to improve that in just 14 days to 94 (Atleast). I am very troubled with what to choose in reading and learning section as I get very confused with the lines and cannot make up my mind especially while reading, I have lost hope but still I am emailing you to provide me tips and good assistance.

    I had score of 22 each in speaking and writing, at those parts I normally don’t get confused.

    Please provide me useful solution or I’ll lose my conditional admission.

    I am very worried.

  388. HI Michael,

    I am so glad to have joined your talkgroup. Your 7 step system has a very comprehensive review for the Toefl ibt exam. I went straight ahead to the speaking skills because I know that it is my weakness in the teofl ibt secton but I believe that the other 3 sections:reading, writing and listening will teach me more strategiies that will be beneficial for passing my toefl-ibt.I am impressed on how you touch base to every student and follow up on each one of them.Your personal interaction encourage us more and make us persevere to achieve our goal and pass the toefl ibt test.I will definitely recommend your 7 step system to my colleagues and friends.

    More power,

    the activities and programes will I have after the subscribtion?

    Also, I would like to inform you that I have took TOEFL IBT twice and
    my scores were almost the same ( 41 and 38). For the two times, I
    prepered well. However, I found that I am a limited student. I will
    try TOEFL for the third time at the end of May. I hope to improve my
    limit with you.

    Please, reply to me as soon as possible. Thank you for your time

    I am scheduled to take the TOEFL IBT by the end of May 2011. I would like to
    know if it is still possible to catch up with your classes since my exam is
    near. I have read two books for the past month.
    My waterloo is the speaking and writing sections.
    Please give me your comments.
    Thank you.
    Respectfully yours,
    Mel

    Hi Michael

    I come from Thailand. I want to take the TOEFL to take the state bord of nursing. I graduated bachelors degree of nursing and worked as a nurse in Thailand for14 years.I have been in the USA. for 3years. I have prepared for the TOEFL by myself since then.Acually I intended to take test on the end of May but I think I’m not ready yet. ( I never take this test before). I have problem about speaking and writing especialy integrate task because sometime I have problem when I have to read and listen in limited time Sometime I do not understand unfamiliar words or it is not my field(nurse or health). After I found your website, I want someone to help me to overcome with it. I hope you can help me.

    Hi There Michael,

    The reason I’m taking these reviewer is for me to pass the TOEFL. I’d took for two times already, after I got the result, I decided to find other way to pass it, so I search on google and i found your website. The purpose of me taking the TOEFL is to for me to take the state board. It’s kinda weird and annoying, because i had my bachelors degree in nursing for 4 years, of course i also took English courses, I may not be that good on it, but I can speak and understand English very well. I just do not know why they wanted me to take TOEFL, it pretty disturbing for me. It seems like their under estimating my English proficiency. Anyway, I’m just knowing you could help me, so that I can pass TOEFL and to get over it.

    Have a great day!

    Mary

    Thank you for contacting me! I have answered your questions in three parts:

    Part 2

    Once you subscribe, you pay $29.95 for every 30 days that you use my service/lessons. Your 30 day payment cycle begins on the day you subscribe. Therefore, if you subscribe today, you will not have another payment due until May 24th. This means you will NOT have a payment due on May 1st.

    Part 3

    Dear Michael,

    I write you in order to ask about your method to be prepare for the TOEFL IBT test.
    I´m thinking to take the test on May 13th, I have good knowledge of english language (I have 865 in the TOEIC listening and reading test), the problems are the speaking and writing part of the TOEFL. I don´t feel secure about these tests and I don´t know if I have enough time to follow your 7 steps. What would you recommend me?
    Also I want to ask you if the subscription of your study method is monthly, I mean that if I subscribe today I have to pay the whole April month and then pay again on the 1st of May?
    I read your steps and I think are great, I can read and listen understanding almost everything without problem, maybe I have a vocabulary and grammar problem but as I said before I don´t think have the necessary time to follow the steps. Any help or advice you can give me will be great to succed in the writing and speaking parts.
    The things I am doing now is reading your 1700words document, also watching your videos and practicing for the test.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards

    Juan

    Hi,
    This is Anu. I’ve seen ur youtube videos. Its amazing! Can u please score my essay? I’ve my test next week. Kindly send me ur comments asap.
    Thanks.

    Some people prefer to eat at food stands or restaurants. Others like to cook and eat at home. Which do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

    People’s opinion about eating habits differ based on their culinary interests. Thus, some people like to eat out and others like to prepare their food in the kitchen. Basically, I’m not an outgoing person and I prefer to cook my food at home rather than going for restaurants. Eating in this way is both cost effective and keeps healthier; I support these views and explain them in the following essay.

    At first, eating food at restaurants is very expensive than preparing food using store bought groceries. For example, I go to Costco or Sam’s club to buy food products in bulk and spend $75, which is sufficient to make meals for the whole week. On the other hand, if I go to a restaurant I have to spend the same amount for my whole family just for a single meal. Further, if I go with my kids, then I end up in buying some desserts which would increase my spending altogether. Hence, going to restaurants to eat is not a good option for me and my family either. That’s why I always prefer eating at home to restaurants.

    Secondly, food prepared at restaurants is not healthier. If I consistently consume food outside, it increases my body weight and even sometimes it leads to indigestion and other intestinal problems. Generally, food prepared in the restaurants do not have good ingredients; it may have more oil, salt, spice and so on, which is definitely not healthy to my body. For example, think about the amount of fat in a pizza; it is one of the dangerous food in the world. I always think about the nutritional facts even when I cook at home and therefore, I do not consider restaurants as a best place to eat wholesome food.

    I conclude that eating food at home is better than restaurants; it reduces my cost of living and keeps me healthy. I enjoy cooking and even my family likes the taste of my food. Thus, mostly I make my food and try to avoid eating at restaurants. I also advice people to explore my recipe which is cheaper, healthier and even tastier than a diner and follow it everyday.

    Hi Michael,
    Thank you for giving this opportunity to thousands of people, who need to take the TOEFL test to get chance to be admitted at international studies.
    I am a native african french-speaker. I had never had opportunity to live in a country, where English is the main tongue. I learned English at secondary school only. And you know what means to be taught English language by french-speakers who never lived in English speaking country (pronunciations, speaking…)! After secondary school I continued self studies in English. Actually I need a satisfy TOEFL iBT score to be admitted in a Master’s program abroad. The university requires 90 score to be admitted definitely. I took a first TOEFL test on April 2, 2011 and totaled only 70. The main problems I met are:
    -time was very limited for me (since I am not a quick reader) in the reading section.
    -I am not fast in note taking.
    -I was nervous and had panic.
    -pronunciations problems.
    I have to retake the test.
    So what can you advise me in particular case to make score on the next test.
    Thank you,
    Claude

    Dear Mr Buckhoff,
    I am an IGCSE student. As a foreign student English is my second language, so I have to sit for the English as a Second Language(ESL) exam this May. I am very good at writing and I already got grade one(the highest possible mark) in the oral section, but I still face one problem which is the listening part. I am used to the American English or the American accent but not to the British one I really face a lot of difficulties understanding it. My good sir I really hope that you might help me. I really need to get an A in my test.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Your blog was recommended to me by a friend:)

  411. Hi I bougth your 24 lessons for toefl and I can not see the lessons , could you help me ??? thank you.

  412. Hi Michael,I bought your STEALTH lesson last October. Now, i’m ready to study TOEFL Ibt again.

    I’m a a registered pharmacist in the Philippines and a perpetual student of TOEFL IBT, I need help to obtain specific high scores required by the NABP. I’ve been studying extensively with a personal English Tutors(retired& Volunteer) for several years.I took the TOEFL Ibt since Dec 08,2008 until June 26 , 2010 for 12 times but I get the same score in Speaking 23 0r 24.I scored almost perfect in other section of the test. How would I teach myself to relax during the speaking section? I joined the Toastmaster’s International Last July 2010 until November 2010 and was once picked to be the “Best Speaker”. I stopped attending this club because to me, I should concentrate on Toefl Prep and my self-confidence is always there. To me, that’s because in Speaking at Toastmasters Club, I was given 7 minutes to give my topic speech. But not in Toefl Ibt which is impromptu and given only maximum of 1 minute. I went to see a therapist about this “anxiety” but nothibg has worked. How would I ever relax ? I can feel my hands are sweaty, my heart pounds faster before the first question comes.I keep correcting myself just after I gave my short answer and sometimes, my thoughts wander because of overwhelming information I’ve just heard. although I took notes, I ended up reading the same words as I’ve heard and have no time to use other synonyms. I wound up short of time organizing my thoughts and missing details when I give my speech because of lack of time . I almost gave up taking TOEFL but my fiance keep on encouraging me to take the test again and warned me that the wedding on May 29th is off.

    I appreciate your help.

  413. Hi Michael. This is James (remember me on your free intelligibility free test? I appreciate your encourgements. I’ve never heared such good words).

    And I just purchased your 7 step system to pass the toefl test, which made me one of your stealth students.

    I thought when I looked at the price of your services that you’ve been doing your customers a big favor, considering your hourly pay at your workplace(more than 70$).
    I thank you for that and I sooner than later will post some speaking and writing responses to some speaking and writing tasks.

    I’m a little worried about the organization of my writing by the way.

    And also, when I get a new microphone probably tommorrow, I’ll post a recording in your Voxopop to tell you what I’ve been doing to reach my current level of pronunciation that you said you’d be interested to know.

  414. hi..michael…
    I messaged you but no reply.I think you must be bussy.I am waiting for your reply and one more question.”do we need to buy 24 lessons separately even after joining the speking lessons for 2 months.. thnxx

  415. Hi Michael,

    Your blog is really cool. I just purchased the 24 TOEFL lessons, and I’m gonna take the exam after two month.
    I would like to ask your suggestion.

    Could you please tell me how do I plan a schedule to follow your lessons and develop my vocabulary, so that I can reach my required scores which are 23 for speaking, 19 for writing, 20 for reading and 18 for listening.

    Thanks.

  418. Please let me know about my mistakes in the following essay.

    Some people believe that university students should be required to attend classes. Other believe that going to classes should be optional. Which point of view do you agree with? Use specific reasons and details to explain your answer

    University life is the most memorable moments of ones life. Going to university is a coveted goal for students all over the world. Attending university life is a great experience where we left beautiful memories and make new friends. In my point of view attending classes should be mandatory for all students. I explain my view on the bases of academic, social and economic reasons.

    Academically it is very important to attend classes because they help the student to learn more. In classes students attend live lectures where the professor narrates many life experiences, research and extra knowledge along with the topic. Reading a text book cannot benefit a student in such a ways. Secondly attending classes makes a student punctual and responsible not only in studies but also in other matters of life. He learns discipline too. During lecture students idealize some professors which become role model for them. This helps him to build their personally. From academic point of view, attending classes gives much more benefits to the student.

    From the social point of view, university life offers the student to change his behavior of spending life. It is a chance to make friends, partners and connections which last for life time. Here individual social circle increases in its volume. Students learn different modes of spending life from each other. Students can discuss social, economic and religious issues which add diversity to their knowledge.

    The most important thing, while working together on assignments and projects student learns how to work in team which is being practiced in all patterns of professional life. By working together they learn a lot from each other’s capabilities and skills. They can share skills with each other. For instance if one is not computer expert the other can guide him. But if one does not attend classes he is not able to get these tremendous benefits. Students make it more enjoyable when they celebrate their birthdays and other parties together. So it is all a practice for later life. Students coming from different cultures also share their experiences.

    Some students who are not attending classes can engage in notorious activities due to their free time. So attending university builds our social behavior too.

    Economically, not attending classes is a loss both for parents and students too. Students who do not seem to attend classes show low progress that is why they appear two or three for the same subject. It is loss of time and money both. So to show good performance in exams and save money one should be very punctual for his classes.

    In conclusion, attending university classes gives benefits in myriad ways which are countless. It is the right place to makes ones dreams comes true. So I think it is very important to attend classes and it should be mandatory for the students.

  419. Hi Michael!

    Thank you very much for your help, your course for Speaking Clearly was a great help.
    I received my scores and I wanted to share this with you:

    Listening 28
    Speaking 24

    It will be enough for my certification purposes, thanks for all your support and advices!

  429. Hi Michael,
    Iam submitting an essay.please evaluate it whenever u have time.

    Some people believe that university students should be required to attend classes. Others believe that going to classes should be optional for students. Which point of view do you agree with? Use specific reasons and details to explain your answer.
    I believe that university students should be required to attend classes. However, classes are conducted through online, which make the students to learn the lessons from home at their own pace. Attending regular classes will help in maintaining a better relationship with the teacher, motivation, and effective learning of the subjects. Therefore, in my opinion, I think it is better to attend classes.

    First, for better relationship with teacher, there should be regular contact between a teacher and a student. If we do not attend classes regularly, we lose the contact with a teacher. If the student has doubts in the subjects, teachers prefer to spend time after the class with the student. Therefore, that will definitely improve the relationship between teacher and a student. For example, my friends study through online and they are not able to communicate with the teacher. Because of lack of communication, the students lack proper guidance. This makes them difficulty in understanding of the subjects and scoring fewer grades.

    Second, students need motivation to achieve their goals. Teachers and parents motivate them to be successful. Attending classes regularly motivate them by competing with other students in the class. If we attend classes once in awhile, we are not aware of the ability of other students. For example, there are about 60 students in my class. About 40 of them compete for an All India Examination for doing our post graduation with scholarship. Our teachers motivated us by conducting classes and tests on weekends which helped us to approach the exam in an easy way. We all diligently prepared for the exam. When I came to know one of my classmates was sleeping only for 2hrs in a day, I was motivated to work even harder. This motivation made me an All India Rank Holder and to pursue my post graduation in a reputed University.

    Third, effective learning of the subjects helps us to settle in a good career. For effective learning, it is better to attend classes regularly. By attending classes regularly, not only we learn effectively, but also we learn to be punctual. For maintaining good attendance, we need to be punctual. Since, attendance also helps us to maintain good grades in the universities. For example, if attending classes are optional, we do not learn punctuality. To learn effectively, we need to be punctual to the classes. If we are late to a class, we lose the continuity in the subjects. This gives us a vague understanding of the subject.

    In conclusion, though people prefer to attend classes optionally, it is better to attend classes regularly for good rapport with the teacher, be motivated and for settling in a good career.

    thanks

    Each TOEFL lesson has speaking tasks that you can practice. And, on each password-protected page, there is a link to my Voxopop Discussion Group where you can practice your responses. I will listen to, evaluate, and score each response you submit.

    Good luck!
