Arianna, raised with a strong Muslim background, spoke mostly Arabic at home with her mother when she moved to San Diego, California; she struggled in things such as reading, speaking, and writing in English. Arianna wanted to improve these areas, so after some time, she decided to do some research and look for an Online TOEFL Course which would help her improve in these areas of difficulty. No too long after that, Arianna came across “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” by Michael Buckhoff–materials writer, founder, owner and teacher for this TOEFL Course.
First of all, Arianna struggled reading English. Often facing many unknown words in reading passages, she felt like she needed to improve her reading ability. With Michael’s 7-Step System, she now has numerous reading exercises which will help her improve her reading fluency: 70 academic speed reading practice tests testing her ability to read from 100 to 350 words per minute. And with much hard work as well as practice, Arianna began scoring 29/30 on the reading practice tests; she even began reading at an incredible pace of 280 words per minute! Reading wasn’t the only skill she improved; Arianna had great results in both the speaking and writing sections of Michael’s Online TOEFL Course.
Second of all, with various integrated and independent practice tests, the speaking section of the 7-Step System tested Arianna’s ability to speak fluidly and clearly. Originally, Arianna had a strong accent and was scoring 18/30 in both the independent and integrated practices. Furthermore, after valuable feedback from speaking and writing specialists from Michael’s Seven Step System, her native Arabic accent began to fade away, and she was scoring a 27/30 on the integrated and independent speaking practice tests. Furthermore, after much practice and improvement in both reading and speaking proficiencies, Arianna began improving in the writing section of Michael’s Course.
Lastly, with Arianna working on hundreds of skill-building exercises and various independent and integrated practice tests in the writing section of “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” she began scoring 27/30 on the writing practice tests and improved her organization, development, and complex sentence formation. Finding it to be just a written and more formal way of speaking the knowledge she had learned through the lesson plans in Michael’s Online TOEFL Course, Arianna enjoyed working on the writing as well as the reading and speaking sections.
In the end, with Michael’s “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” Arianna improved her reading, speaking, and writing abilities in English. Likewise, she reduced her non-native speaker accent and eliminated the linguistic difficulties she had when she originally moved to San Diego, California.
