Ricardo isn’t at the moment attending a university nor does he have face-to face access to educated native English speakers. Therefore, he decides to use the Internet to see if he can find some online TOEFL lessons plus feedback from a TOEFL specialist who can help him improve his speaking and writing scores.
To improve his speaking, he wants help with his pronunciation and speaking fluency of American English, including someone who can listen to his recorded responses to independent and integrated speaking tasks and can evaluate and score those responses so he can know what to do to score higher.
In addition to improving his speaking, Ricardo, wanting to improve his writing skills, is looking for practice exercises and instructions so he can learn how to organize and develop responses to the TOEFL independent and integrated writing tasks. Moreover, he wants feedback on his grammar and vocabulary errors so he can avoid those mistakes during the actual TOEFL exam. Lastly, he wants to be able to take TOEFL independent and integrated writing practice tests that will, like his speaking responses, be read, evaluated, and scored by a TOEFL specialist who can pinpoint his errors and suggest ways to avoid them in the future.
Fortunately, after spending a few days searching for and evaluating different online TOEFL services, Ricardo found a web site called bettertoeflscores, which offers “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.” Ricardo decides to subscribe to the inexpensive online TOEFL service so he can get on track to solving his TOEFL-related speaking and writing difficulties. Soon enough, Ricardo will be ready to re-take the TOEFL test, this time scoring 26 and 24 pts. on the speaking and writing sections of the test.
Good luck, Ricardo!
