Maria, who joined an Online TOEFL Course, has some questions about reading fluency and posting speaking practice tests at a Voxopop Discussion Group.

Maria….Wow, when I hear that name, I can not think of anyone who has worked harder at my Online TOEFL Course to learn academic English.  And, when she has questions, she is not afraid to ask.  Here is her most recent question:

Hi, Michael,

I watched your video on for many students about improve toefl score. You mentioned that test taker should read 45minutes every day. I believe that this is very important for us to improve reading ability. However, could you give us some details for how to read a book. I have some unknown vocabulary in every page, should I skip these vocabularies as long as I can understand the main idea? Or should I look for the dictionary? Some of these words are out of the TOEFL words, should I still need to remember these vocabularies?

By the way, I want to know some policy of your service. How many speaking audio could we record which you would give us the score? And the writing section as well. I heard one of your worker named Nathan said only one audio can be scored every day? Is that correct?



The following video answers her questions:
