    2. Hi Mr. Buckhoff
      My name is Rodrigue
      I’m planning to take a Toefl exam in July 2017.
      My previous score that I got, around 1.5 years ago, was 38/120 (R 12 ; L 2 ; W 10 ; S 14) and I wonder how to reach 100/120 within 6 months. I can invest 5 hours a day, from January 16th to July 2017, to prepare for the test.
      I’d like you to tell me how I can manage my time to reach my goal within that period of time. Please tell me what my training schedule will be? If there are some specific things to do to quickly improve my score, don’t hesitate to tell it to me

      1. Here is my study plan for you: https://youtu.be/DqiBEnplv1o

  2. Hi, I’m pretty interested on your course. My exam is approaching, being specific is on january 31st. I’ve reading and doing some writings but I want to go deeper, because i want some feedback and strategies. I mean do you bring skype classes or something like that? Can you help me? What’s the cost of your course including that kind of sessions? Thank you so much i hope you can answer asap!

      1. Hi Michael,

        Firstly, I want to thank you for your valuable advices. I did your suggestions and I got 89 (R 24, L 20, S 22, W 23). Unfortunately, I missed the minimum requirement by 1 point. My new goal is 100 right now and I want to follow your course. But I am not sure which one is best for me?

        Secondly, my gre verbal and writing score is really bad. I wonder that will your course help me to get higher score in GRE exam, too?

        1. Leman,

          Here are my comments to you:

          Congratulations on your improvements so far, and I am confident you will continue to improve to reach your new TOEFL target score.

          Thanks!

  5. Hi Michael, my husband scheduled me to take the TOEFL test this 3rd of October, and I am really struggling with most of it. I do study everyday during my free time to be able to improve my vocabulary but still I am having a hard time. Just like when I did the speaking and writing sections, I stutter, running out of words and ended up stopping it. I just want to know how many hours a day do I need to do the class cause I have kids and my youngest is 1 that I need to take care of. Is it not too late for me to get at least a 1month class from you?

    Thank you

    1. Aileen,

      Here are my video comments to you:

      Thanks,

      Michael

  6. When will i get my username and password credentials, since i have subscribed to this one month course.

    1. S,

      If you joined my course over the last 24 hours, my teaching assistant should have already enrolled you in my Online TOEFL Course. Did you get access?

      Thanks,

      Michael

  7. Hi Mr. Buckhoff
    I need your help. I need to have a score of 26 on my speaking section. I tried 3 times already but I never could reach it. First time I studied with a TOEFL IBT book and I got 11R-20L-20S-8W=59; Second time I enrolled and online course for 2 weeks and I got 14R-22L-19S-17W=72 and third and last time I spend 5 month with a personal teacher and my score was 20R-19L-18S-16W=73.
    If I enroll into your course, Can I have the chance to get 26 or more on the speaking section before September? I have to rush on this because my job depends on this. By the way I haven’t schedule any future TOEFL test yet.
    Waiting your answer.
    Sincerely yours.
    Ricardo Faccin

  8. Hi Michael,

    I’ve just signed up for your course and made a payment through PayPal.
    However, I haven’t received any email confirmation or anything so I just wonder how can I get an access to it? I want to start studying ASAP.

    Thanks,
    Meg

    1. Meg,

      Check your e-mail. I enrolled you into my Online TOEFL Course earlier today.

      Thanks,

  9. Hello,

    How many hours do I have to study each day to complete your 30 day Lesson Plan for the Online Course
    “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT” ?

    1. Barbara,

      I have updated my site and no longer use the study guides that I had before. Instead, students get unlimited access to all 700 lessons in my course can use them any way they want.
      Because most students are at different levels linguistically and do not always have the same have the same TOEFL target scores, they will use my course differently and for different periods of time.

      If you want to get a general idea how you should use my course, go to my You Tube Channel to see recommended ways of using my course based on your similar goals: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLH9Un-a8tO4I-IbljhVmyYQqKmNCjo7Jg

      Most students, Barbara, join my course because they can post speaking, pronunciation, and writing practice and get feedback from me or from my teaching assistant–all for one low cost. Many other Online TOEFL Courses do not offer this type of interaction.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  10. Hello, My name is Claire. I need 26 on speaking and 24 on writing.
    I took toefl ibt several times and I’ve met the requirements I need in reading, listening and writing sections.
    However, I keep getting 22 ~ 24 in speaking. I’m really interested in your programs and wondering which course is better to me between monthly subscription option and toefl speaking boot camp course. Thanks.

    1. Claire,

      I recommend my TOEFL Speaking Boot Camp Course for you which exclusively concentrates on helping you improve your speaking and pronunciation.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  11. Hi Michale,

    This is Najifa. I want to join in your 90 days course as soon as possible but I am wondering about the Voxopop. Is it still available to download for free? If not, is there any other options to send the speaking response and get feedback?

    Najifa

    1. NA,

      Voxopop is dead now, so you will e-mail me your speaking and pronunciation practice if you join my course. Then I will send you speaking feedback by e-mail.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  15. Hello,
    This is Asma. I’d like to join your classes but I am confused which one. My score is
    R: 14
    L: 19
    S: 19
    W: 16
    and my gol is 85 In overall
    The other question is if I join the month toefl course , I would have unlimited access to send my speaing practice and writing by email.

    1. Asma,

      Since your initial TOEFL score is 68 and since your goal is 85, roughly 17 points of improvement, I recommend that you follow my 3-month TOEFL plan. Yes, similar to all my courses, you will have unlimited access to send me pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice by e-mail.

      My only limit is this: Do not send me more than ONE pronunciation or speaking practice test and ONE writing practice test every 24 hours.

  17. Dear Michael

    I’m aiming to take the TOEFL IBT on the 10th of march, which i know is pretty soon. At least it’s too short to follow your full 1 month preparation plan.

    I need my score to be at least 86. So far i’ve taken the practice test on scorenexus.com and one full test. My points were as follows:
    practice test: reading28 listening25 speaking23 writing15, total91
    full test: reading28 listening29 speaking24 writing14, total 95.
    I know that both exceed my needed 86 points, but I was hoping you could recommend an effective way to use my last 20 days of practice.

    I am not a native english speaker, and I think that is one of the primary reasons why my speaking is not optimal. The other reason is that I am not very confident regarding the structure of my speaking answers.

    My writing part was quite bad in both my tests and I know that this is where I could probably improve the most. My main problem seems to be my structure, but my grammar and/or vocabulary were also subpar according to the grader on scorenexus. I know that improving grammar will be tough in just 20 days, but I am hoping to improve my vocabulary. I also really hope to improve my ability to structure my writing essays correctly.
    We don’t write essays in my country the way you do it in USA and GB, and as such I am not at all used to writing my answers inthe way my grader suggested .

    I can invite you as a teacher on scorenexus if that helps you pinpoint how to best spend my time?

    I can subscribe to the 1 month course and/or one or more bootcamp courses according to your suggestions.

    I hope you can help me and I’m looking forward to hearing from you either here on the website or in an e-mail.

    Kind regards
    Christian

    1. A small correction. On my practice test i did not receive a writing grading at all. The total score is thus 76 without the writing grade.

      1. Christian,

        l am recommending my 1-Month TOEFL Course for you, which will give you some balanced practice to help you improve. In addition, you will be able to get some pronunciation, speaking, and writing feedback so that you can monitor your progress as you complete lessons in my course.

  19. Hi

  20. Hi,

    I want to try your system, but in Turkey paypal is restricted. Do you have any other payment or subscription method?

    Thanks.
    Burcu.

    1. You can also pay by credit card. Will that work?

    2. Burcu,

      Go to http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/about/ and choose a non-subscription option. Then, when you go to checkout, choose the credit card option.

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Hi,
        I payed by creditcard yesterday. I am waiting login informations.
        Thanks

  21. Hi,
    I just paid for 6-month course non subscription option. How do I proceed with log in to access the material?
    Thank you,
    PP

    1. I sent you your username and password information so that you can begin your TOEFL preparation studies. I also suggest that you read this article I wrote over the weekend: http://bettertoeflscores.com/setting-goals-in-your-toefl-preparation-studies/8525/

    2. I sent you your username and password information already. Let me know if you have any problems logging on. Also, follow the link to your 6-Month TOEFL Course: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/180-Day-7-Step-Study-Guide.pdf

  22. Hello,
    Do you have online private lessons for writing and speaking?
    Thanks

    1. Bahar,

      No, I do not hold private lessons because I teach students in many different time zones from many different countries. However, I have two excellent speaking and writing boot camp courses that will most certainly help you to reach your writing and speaking target scores. Look over the course outlines and let me know what you think:

      TOEFL Speaking Boot Camp Course: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/30-Day-7-Step-Study-Guide-for-Speaking-1.pdf

      TOEFL Writing Boot Camp Course: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/30-Day-7-Step-Study-Guide-for-Writing-and-Grammar-2.pdf

      With these two courses, you will be able to send me speaking and writing practice tests daily, and I will comment on these tasks the next day. Now sure what type of speaking and writing feedback I will provide?

  23. Hi
    My composite Toefl IBT score is a 102
    R:29 L:28 W:26 S:19
    I will be applying for undergrad in the states.
    My primary aim is to improve my toefl speaking score to a 24-26 range and hopefully higher.
    I want to improve my writing score too.
    I messed up the first two questions of the speaking section.
    I froze for a few seconds and I was unable to think properly.

  24. Hello Michael
    I just paid for one month course non subscription option. How should I log in to access the material?

    1. I used my Visa credit card for payment (in case you want to verify).

      1. Email me at mbuckhoff@aol.com if you have any problems logging onto my course. Thanks!

    2. Did you get access to all of my lessons?

  25. Hi Michael,

    I´ve just bought the 1 month course, and I didn´t receive any e-mail yet.
    How can I access the materials?

    Thank you
    Ester

    1. I sent you your username and password information to your email account. Today, I am listening to your pronunciation pretest that you sent me.

  26. I sent you an email for an evaluation of the speaking? When will I usually get respond back?

    1. You already have a response. I sent you my comments about your speaking yesterday.

      1. Check your e-mail and your spam folder.

  27. Hello dear Sir, this is Zaheer from Afghanistan, I am unfamiliar to the TOEFL ibt test, and still haven’t taken any test, I want you to prepare me for all sections, how can I get to your course, please guide me. I have 6 months to be prepared for, thank you.
    sincerely yours,
    Zaheer.

    1. SZ,

      First of all, you should take a full-length iBT practice test to find your TOEFL level. I have a partner web site that offers realistic full-length TOEFL iBT practice tests for about $40 US. Take the non-free full-length practice test and then email your results to me. Go here to take one of these accurate, realistic TOEFL exams: http://scorenexus.com?afmc=1f

      Second of all, in the email in which you send me your results, let me know what target TOEFL score you need. In addition, tell me specifically what subtotal scores you need.

      Finally, based on that information, I will recommend a course plan best suited to your needs.

      Thanks,

      Michael Buckhoff
