Access: When I join your 7 Step System, 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 don’t have much money.

Yes, you can. Once you join The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT, you will have immediate access to all 700 + TOEFL lessons. Therefore, you can work on whichever lessons you want, wherever you want (so long as you have a good Internet connection), and whenever you want.

 

Credit Card: I do not have a credit card, or Pay Pal is not accepted in my country. How can I subscribe to The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT?

If you cannot use Pay Pal, you can pay me by Western Union. If you use Western Union, the minimum requirement is that you pay up front for 3 months of my TOEFL service. The cost is $135.00. Here is my contact information in case you should decide to wire me $135: Michael Buckhoff / 13509 Buena Vista Drive / Hesperia, California 92344.

After I receive your payment, I will create your username, password, and enrollment key to The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBTCLICK HERE to read in more depth about your payment options.

 

Delivery: How will you teach me your TOEFL lessons?

All lessons are viewed online and are produced as PDF files and videos. Some videos use adobe flash format, whereas others will require you to use a free Quick Time plug-in. You will need a reliable, high-speed Internet connection to view these videos. When I score your TOEFL pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice tests, I will provide feedback in one of the following ways: written, video, or audio.

 

Duration: How long does your course last?

There is no specific length to the 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. Use it as long as you need it. How long you use the service will depend on your TOEFL goals and desired level of academic proficiency. For example, students with TOEFL scores between 40-80 points will generally use my TOEFL service for about 3 months, and students with TOEFL scores higher than 80 will usually use this service for 1-2 months.

 

How: How do I use The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT? Do you have a course outline that I can follow while I am a subscriber to your TOEFL service?

Yes, I do. Click on the following link to learn how to use my service while you are one of my students: 30-Day “7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT” Study Guide

Experience: What are your professional qualifications and teaching experience?

I have a BA in Spanish from Brigham Young University and an MA in English Composition/TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) plus 20 years of experience teaching ESL (including TOEFL preparation), and first-year and upper division composition and linguistics classes. Currently, I am employed at California State University, San Bernardino, where I teach under the auspices of the English Department and the College of Extended Learning.

 

Feedback: How will you provide feedback when I am a student?

All of my vocabulary lessons are self-study, so you will have an answer key to check your answers after you have completed a lesson. In addition, in the case of the listening, grammar, and reading practice tests, your practice tests will be automatically scored by my web site so that you can immediately check your progress. However, in the case of my pronunciation, writing, and speaking practice tests, a TOEFL iBT specialist will evaluate, score, and recommend lessons (I have more than 700 of them!) to help you speak more clearly and coherently and to help you advance your academic writing proficiency. The feedback on your pronunciation and independent and integrated speaking and writing practice tests will typically be in the form of written, video, or audio comments. Finally, any TOEFL or course-related questions that you may ask will be answered by E-mail again in the form of written, video, or audio comments.

It usually takes one of our TOEFL iBT specialists 1-3 days to evaluate and contact you regarding any pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice tests that you have submitted at The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.

Guarantee: Do you have a money-back guarantee if I do not pass the TOEFL iBT?

No, I do not. First of all, there is no official “passing” mark on the TOEFL iBT. For example, some of my students want 61, others desire 81, and even others want to score higher than 100. Second of all, reaching your desired TOEFL score is largely dependent on your study habits, motivation, and intellect. All of these factors are mostly beyond my control as a language instructor. However, as long as you are a subscriber to The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT, I will score any pronunciation, speaking, or writing practice tests that you submit, and I will do everything I can to help you reach your target TOEFL score.

Payment: What happens after I make a Pay Pal payment for The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT? When will I be able to start your TOEFL service?

After making your payment, Pay Pal will notify me. Using the E-mail that you gave Pay Pal when you created your account, I will create your username and your password, both of which are the same as your E-mail address. Your enrollment key will be 7stepsystem. 24 hours after making your Pay Pal payment, go to the following web site to begin your studies: http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/login/index.php

  4. Type in “7stepsystem” as ONE word for your enrolment key.
  5. Click “Enrol me.”

 

Practice Tests: How many integrated and independent speaking and writing practice tests do you have to help me improve?

For speaking, currently I have 300 paired-choice and personal preference speaking tasks and 20 integrated speaking tasks. After recording your responses to these speaking tasks at my Voxopop discussion web site, a TOEFL iBT specialist will listen and orally comment on your responses focusing on your delivery, language use, and topic development. In addition, based on your score, the TOEFL iBT specialist will recommend specific lessons that you should review in order to help you improve. For writing, I have ten independent and ten integrated writing practice tests that you can complete directly at The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. And, in a similar manner to the speaking practice tests, a TOEFL iBT specialist will read, evaluate, and score your written responses and recommend lessons on which you can work so that you can continue to improve.

 

Price: What is the cost of your service?

The cost of having access to more than 700 lessons and practice tests and to have your pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice tests evaluated and scored by TOEFL iBT specialists is $45.00 per month, and you can cancel my TOEFL service at your Pay Pal account after the first month. If you decide to continue my TOEFL service, you will be billed $45.00 for each month that you use my TOEFL service.

Results: What kind of result can I expect after one month of using The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT?

Each student will vary in his or her score improvement, and your TOEFL score improvement is largely dependent on how diligent you are in studying The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. Based on the hundreds of students who have used my TOEFL service this year, you can probably expect an improvement of about 5-10 points on your overall TOEFL score for each month that you use my service. Consider the case of Sabah, who used my TOEFL service for 3 months. She improved her speaking score on the actual TOEFL iBT from 22 to 26 points and improved her writing section from 22 to 29 points.

 

Seven Steps: Why do you have seven steps to pass the TOEFL iBT? The TOEFL iBT only consists of four sections.

Even though the TOEFL consists of reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections, I added three additional steps in my course, vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar, which are important for helping you to pass the TOEFL iBT. For example, since TOEFL iBT human raters will grade your speaking tasks on your delivery as well as your grammar and language use and your topic development, I created a pronunciation section of my course to help you improve your vowel and consonant sound production, syllable division and grammatical word endings, word stress, sentence rhythm, intonation, and thought groups and blending.

 

Speaking and Writing: Can you help me reach 26 and 24 points on the speaking and writing sections of the TOEFL?

Yes, I can, and I have helped many of my online students reach these scores. The key to reaching these desired scores on the speaking and writing sections is to make sure that you complete all lessons and practice tests related to pronunciation, speaking, and writing. In addition, if I see that you have vocabulary and grammar problems, I will also recommend that you complete all of those lessons.

 

Start Date: When can I start your course? Do I have to subscribe to your course at the beginning of the month?

You can begin The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT today or anytime you want. Furthermore, no, you do not have to begin this TOEFL service at the beginning of the month. Your 30-day billing cycle starts when you subscribe to my TOEFL service. For example, if you joined my service on December 15, 2011, you will NOT be billed again until January 15, 2012. Therefore, if you only want to use my TOEFL service for one month, you should cancel your subscription (using your Pay Pal account) before January 15, 2012. If you want to use my TOEFL service for another month, do nothing and Pay Pal will automatically bill you for each month that you use my TOEFL service. A majority of my students use my TOEFL service for more than 1 month, and many will use my service for at least 3 months.

 

Subscription: When I click to make a payment, why does it say “$45.00 for each month?”

By making a payment for my TOEFL iBT service, you are creating a Pay Pal subscription, which means you are billed $45 per month as long as you are a subscriber to The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. Using your Pay Pal account, you can cancel your subscription any time you want, but the minimum requirement is that you use my service for 1 month. Your 30-day billing cycle starts on the day you make your first payment. For example, if you started using my TOEFL service on November 12, 2011, you will need to cancel my TOEFL service before December 12, 2011 if you do not want to get billed for an additional month.

  1. Hi Michael.
    I have a question for you, my internet acces is not so good. Could I download and save your viedos?

    1. Uce,

      Some of videos are downloadable but not all. Many of the practice tests you will need to complete online, so, if you do not have a good internet connection, you will not want to study TOEFL online with me.

    1. Ranjith,

      To learn how to join my Voxopop Discussion Group, watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lMR-b1U6Cg

      To reach your goal, you will need to spend approximately three months. Read the following article I wrote about a student who has been taking my Online TOEFL Course. My discussion of her situation will help you to see what you need to do in the next three months for you to reach your goal:

      Jo-Anne enrolled in an Online TOEFL Course called “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.” While preparing for the intense English proficiency exam, she discovered that materials; a pronunciation, speaking, and writing iBT specialist, motivation, and plain old fashioned hard work were integral in helping her achieve a high score on the TOEFL iBT.

      First of all, in order for Jo-Anne to score high on the TOEFL exam, she has been working hard studying the appropriate academic content in her Online TOEFL Course; that is to say, she has been studying vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading, listening, writing, and speaking materials aimed at the advanced language learner. Moreover, the 1,700 vocabulary words that Jo-Anne is studying are recyled in the other six sections of the course: pronunciation, grammar, reading, listening, writing, and speaking. Materials writer and founder of her Online TOEFL Course Michael Buckhoff wanted to make certain that his students would get a working knowledge of the vocabulary words so that it would be more likely that his students recognize the words in listening and reading passages and be able to use them during the speaking and writing sections of the TOEFL exam.

      The second thing that Jo-Anne realized was that, in addition to having the appropriate academic materials to help her advance her academic English proficiency, she would need to get daily feedback from a TOEFL iBT pronunciation, speaking, and writing specialist. First, her TOEFL iBT pronunciation specialist Michael Buckhoff merged his stand-alone “Speak Clearly Course for Non-Native Speakers of American English” with his Online TOEFL Course so that Jo-Anne would be able to complete 48 pronunciation lessons to improve her mastery of vowels, consonants, syllable division and grammatical word endings, word stress, sentence rhythm, intonation, thought groups, and blending. Unique to this Online TOEFL Course, diagnostic pre-tests and a post-test were taken by Jo-Anne so that she could pinpoint exactly on which pronunciation lessons she needed to focus.

      Like the pronunciation section, her TOEFL iBT provided feedback each time she took an independent or integrated speaking and writing practice test. In total, her Online TOEFL Course provided her 50 speaking and 20 writing practice tests, each time getting written, audio, or video feedback. The process was quite simple: every time she took a practice test, her iBT speaking and writing specialist would give her a score, recommend specific lessons to help her improve (her Online TOEFL Course has more than 330 lessons!), and, after reviewing those lessons, she would take another practice test to measure her progress.

      The third and fourth key ingredients to getting a high score required Jo-Anne to have the motivation and hard work needed to help her stay focused until she reached her TOEFL goals. In order to stay motivated, Jo-Anne asked herself this question every morning when she awoke from a peaceful slumber, “Why do I want to score higher than 100 on the TOEFL exam?” Of course, she wanted to become a pharmacist, and to become one, she would need to score high on the TOEFL exam since her native tongue is Turkish. Therefore, she kept reminding herself each day why she needed to pass the TOEFL iBT. Furthermore, Jo-Anne was not just motivated to learn English just for her job, but she also had a genuine interest in learning English so she could communicate with her newly found friends since she had moved to the United States six years ago. Since Jo-Anne was motivated to learn English to score over 100 on the TOEFL exam, she was also determined to work hard to realize her goals.

      How hard was she willing to work? Well, during her first month of using her Online TOEFL Course, she set time aside each week to study vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar. On Mondays and Wednesdays she would study vocabulary for 3 hours on each day: making vocabulary flash cards, downloading vocabulary sound files, completing and reviewing hundreds of quizzes and cumulative vocabulary exams. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, she would practice the pronunciation exercises recommended by her iBT pronunciation specialist for 2 hours each day. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, she would spend 2 hours each day studying grammar, often writing and rewriting the advanced grammar structures she was studying. Then she would try to use the new structures in her speech on a daily basis.

      During her second and third month of completing the lessons in her Online TOEFL Course, she studied the listening, reading, speaking, and writing sections with the same intensity. For example, like she did the first month, she would set aside time each day to learn the lessons and to complete the listening, reading, speaking, and writing practice tests. It was frustrating for Jo-Anne for a while because, even though she had learned the vocabulary and grammar sections of her course, she still had difficulty controlling her language use during the speaking and writing tasks. However, with practice, Jo-Anne slowly but surely was able to more accurately complete her speaking and writing practice tests. Therefore, soon enough, she will be ready to reach her goals when she takes the official TOEFL iBT exam. And her whole preparation took her about 3 months.

      All the best to your high-scoring TOEFL success!

      Michael

  21. Hello!
    My husband needs to take a TOEFL test in April/May next year and needs a score of minimum 60. It’s not as high as the usual requirements because it’s in order to study in Norway (where only some of the material is in english).

    As you see, he’s got a lot of time on his hands, but his english is now quite basic. He had english in high school, but this was in Venezuela and the quality of the classes/teachers wasn’t that high. We’re not sure about how he would score currently. He is interested in your course, but we don’t know if he has sufficient basic knowledge to start, or if it would be better for him to study in other ways first and start your course later. Do you have any advice? And is there some way for him to find out his level without comitting to the course already?

    Thanks for your reply! 🙂

  22. Dear Mr. Buckhoff:

    I currently hold a C2 certification through Trinity College London. I am also an English and Science teacher here in Peru. Would you be able to help me prepare for the written portion of the exam which I would like to take next year? I obtained my C2 in Listening and Speaking with distinction. I also have other questions, but I would like to do so by conference call if at all possible.

    If I may contact you via skype or what not, let me know. Thanks for your time. Please contct me by email which is attached in the “Leave a Reply” section of this form.

      Luigi,

      It is tough to meet with me by Skype right now with my busy holiday schedule. Why don’t you make an audio file asking me all your questions? Then, I will answer you by video when I get some free time? E-mail me the audio file of your questions to mbuckhoff@aol.com.

      Be sure you tell me as much as possible about the writing exam that you need to take so that I can tell you whether or not I can help you with that. And feel free to ask me your other questions as well. After you ask me each question, be sure to pause for 2-3 seconds, which will make it easier for me since I will be integrating the audio file of your questions into my video.

      Merry Christmas!

  25. Mike,

  26. Hi, Michael. I wonder if you have the service of checking essays. If yes, how much is it and how the payments are to be made?
    Thank you.

  27. Dear Micheal,

    I have an important question. My TOEFL exam is 40 days from now. And I was considering your course as a way to prepare for the exam. However, I have a question, during the first month can I view and study all the lessons the over 300 lesson if i dedicated a lot of time per day.
    Meaning when I subscribe will the lessons be open for me? Or will they be arranged by you so I can’t take as much as I want?

    I’d really appreciate a quick reply
    Best regards,

  28. Hello Mr. Michael. I am from Panama and I need to take my TOEFL ibt into 25 days. Last year I took this test and I got 55 points in the internet based Toefl. I have trouble understanding in the reading and listening sections that are basically crucial to succeed in this test, I guess, because the speaking and writting sections also require from your understanding in reading and listening in order to accomplish your integrated tasks. I feel really stressed, and I am conscious this is really short time for practice.
    Do you think is it possible that I can use your service just only within this 25 days?

    I really hope you can reply me as soon as possible,

    Regards,
    Esb

  30. I joined your course 3 days ago and keep working hard. It is really well-organized and provides the best chance for the best scores. All the sections are comprehensive and contain a wide range of material for the success of students. Of particular help to me were steps 6 and 7 (writing and speaking sections).

  32. Hi Michael,

    I’ll probably take the TOEFL test on the twenty second of June and I guess I’m near to desperation. This is my first and only chance to get a reasonable score (maybe 86?) and there is less than a month remaining. Do you think it is possible?
    As I’ve never took the test before, I don’t know what would be my level. Even though I completed the listening part of Thompson’s practice test yesterday and I got 26 out of 30. Is there a “placement test” for the TOEFL available on your course? I’ve been thinking about paying for the official one, but I’m not quite sure if it really worths, it’s very expensive. Anyway, I suppose I need to work on my speaking and writing skills a lot.

    Well, I hope to hear from you soon!

        1. Ah, nevermind, I think it was my boswer’s fault. Now I see the correct one.

  33. Hi Michael,

    This is Stephen from Taiwan. Nice to meet you. I hope you can give me some suggestions about my TOEFL exam preparing.

    First of all, I want to show you my last two scores in TOEFL:

    1. R: 20 L:20 S:19 W:21 T:80
    2. R: 23 L:21 S:17 W:22 T:83

    I think that speaking and listing are my weakness. I really don’t know how to improve those in a short time. I plan to achieve 93 after 1 month and to achieve above 100 after two months. Do you think that my goal is realistic? If I can’t get this score before September, I will lose the opportunity to study abroad this year. So I am pretty nervous at this moment. May I ask, what kind of class you would recommend me to attend? Thank you for your reading. Have a nice day. See you then.

    Best Regards,
    Stephen

    But I need 90 at least, I am planning to take the next test in 10 weeks. You think I will be able to

  41. Dear sir,

    I just got my scores for the test I took on November 9th. I scored 87 ( Reading 19, Listening 22, writing 23, and speaking 23). To be honest I think luck didn’t help me in the reading section, because i really think it’s undervalue my real reading abilities.

    Since I am not satisfied with my result, I decided to study 1 more month and retake the exam in order to get 100, that is 13 more points ,100 – 87.

    My question now, do you think your program can help attain my goal given the amount of time left? I really feel optimistic about your study guides although it is my first time I visit your site.

    Waiting your answer

    Thank you!

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Thank you very much. I’m pretty sure that following your program lessons and tips I will do better in my next TOEFL exam. I think my biggest mistake in my last exam was that I just took practice exams, without even knowing which questions were answered wrongly or correctly. I didn’t study in deails how to tackle each type of questions I would encounter in the test.

        Now and for 30 days I will dedicate 2-3 hours of my time to study for the TOEFL using your program.

        I just subscribed to your program. However, until now I havent got any confirmation or details on how to access the premium resources on the site.

        Thanks you very much,and again I am very optimistic and positive that I will improve my score by at least 10 points.

        Until later

  42. Hi Miachel Buckhoff

    I just got my score for TOEFL which i took on December. Unfortunately i scored 71 (reading 17, listening 15, Speaking 17, and writing 22)which did not meet the requirement (80)for graduate study. Precisely, i want to score more than 90. Is it possible to increase score by 20 (91-71) in two months. Please suggest me what to do so that i can score as i wish.

  44. Hi Michael! Seems to me that your course is fantastic and very organized! I have some doubts about your course… I started to study english 9 months ago,
    before it, I didn’t know any thing in english.. So, I’d know if the listening passage, there is a subtitle(in english),so I could listen and read at the same time, because I still have much difficulty to listen. I really need to do the toefl test more fast as possible And what advices would you give me ? thanks!

    1. Lauro,

      Here are a couple of questions before I give you advice:

      1. Have you taken the TOEFL before? If you have, what score did you get, including subtotals on reading, listening, speaking, and writing?

      2. When you take the TOEFL test, what score do you want to get, including subtotals?

      Answering these two questions will help me recommend the best plan for you.

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Michael, I never had take the TOEFL.
        I need to get, 61 points, about subtotals I don’t know.
        I can take the TOEFL, until june 2016, I have more two years, however as more fast is better to me.

        THANKS!!

  49. Hi Michael,

    I am a physical therapist from India. I attempted toefl, and got a score of 106, with 23 in speaking. I want 26 in that for further studies. Can u help me in that? I wanted to join your course, but couldn’t understand few things about that course. I want to give the toefl next month, so can i complete all the exercises in one month duration? Is it mandatory to follow the study plan devised by you, cant I complete all lessons early, at my own pace? And how many speak clearly responses can I post on voxopop group daily? I mean, I want to post more than one, and get evaluated for them, so is that possible? The only reason for this hurry is that I have some deadlines to meet, so I need to pass the speaking section with 26 score as early as possible. Kindly help me.

In my case, I intend to transfer from college to university, and the requirement for the Toefl IBT is 92. Recently, I just got my result back, and I got 89 (R-22,L-23, S-23, and W-21) I would need to retake it again on December. Can you please guide me what I should do to improve my score? I am also confused with my writing score since when I took it 2 years back, I got 22.

  56. Hi Michael,

    How can I get a base line statement on my scores in the TOEFL iBT if this is my first time doing the test? Do you have any diagnostic test or something like this? I would like to do something like this to understand where I would need to focus.

    I work all the day and probably would have 2 hours a day to study the following 2-3 months. Do you think this will be enough time to get 100 (min 25 in each section)?

    Many thanks,
    F

    PS: I couldn´t find the additional cost for the training tests, so please can you send it to me as well?

      1. Hi Michael,

        Many thanks for your concrete advise. The only thing I would like to clariffy a bit more is the online practice test cost (with the discount) that you suggested.

        Sorry for doing push back, but I saw the site you mentioned and the price (without the discount) is higher than the official ETS online practice. So would be interested to get this price to make my final decision and start asap.

        Thanks again,

          With the discount, the full-length practice tests cost $34.

    I have never had a TOEFL IBT test before but I will. I want to apply for a job requires English language proficiency TOEFL IBT(Reading 22, Listening 21, Speaking 23, Writing 21). First of all, I need to know what my English level is and try to improve it. Now, I ask you how I can do it? Do your web-site have a level test for TOEFL IBT? After I get what my level is, I will start to take your lessons. Thank you.

    1. Yes, once you become a student in my Online TOEFL Course, you can complete a full-length TOEFL iBT practice test. In fact, you can find out about these full-length practice tests by going to the eighth section of my course. However, this is NOT part of the $38 subscription fee. You will need to make an additional payment to ScoreNexus, which is a company with which I have contracted. The TOEFL iBT speaking and writing specialists will score all six of your speaking tasks and both of your writing tasks so that you will get subtotal scores in speaking and writing. Moreover, you will also get subtotal scores in listening and reading. In all, you will get an overall score, along with subtotals in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections. At that point, you can then send me another e-mail with your practice test score results along with the following information:

      “I want to apply for a job which requires English language proficiency of 87 on the TOEFL IBT(Reading 22, Listening 21, Speaking 23, Writing 21).”

      Once I get your practice test score results along with your stated academic English language proficiency goals, I will be able to recommend a study plan best suited to your needs.

  58. Hi!

    My name is José and I have taken the TEOFL IBT some time ago and my score was 91, which is for most of my purposes fair enough. I must say I didn’t spend too long preparing the exam due to work issues. More than asking for you to give me lessons to improve my english, I would like to ask your opinion on two concrete points.

    Firstly, by my education and my personality I do not speak quick in any of the languages I do speak (Spanish, German, English). It is actually funny to see how this gave me int he recent past some headaches when I contacted the Bank in my homotown, where I have an account, and asked them for some service. The secretary literally didn’t allow me to speak ! This actually became a trouble in my speaking section: I got short in my argument twice. Moreover, because of my graduate education, I am used not to give “easy” answers to nearly every question I am asked to answer. This annoyed me quite a bit during the exam.

    Secondly, I had troubles in the writing part of the TOEFL, the one that concerns writing about someone else’s ideas, where I obtained a “fair” (2.5-3.5). I think the problem here was that I did not use many words referencing the listened material. In other words, I might have written all the information I should have, but stated it as it was mine. I feel words like “according to”, or “In the passage” were missing and reduced my score greatly.

    Having described my issues already I would like to state couple of questions: is there any
    exercise to learn to speak fast? . As for the last inconvenient I got: I suspect there is a list of words to make reference to other people’s thoughts that one is implicitly obligated to use. Is it so? and if so, which ones?

    Best regards,
    JJ

    1. Jose,

      Here are my video comments to you:

  59. Hi,

    Please let me know what number can I reach you?

    Thanks,
    AN

    1. An,

      I typically do not give my number out to my potential customers, at least now until they join my course. What is your question?

      Thanks,

      Michael

  60. Hi, Michael

    I am Srikanth, when I join the course. Is it possible to get free trial for 2 days or can be completed usage of 700 lessons within 2-3 months and those vocabulary, grammar lessons etc will be useful for GRE Verbal? Also, whenever I’m out of station can be possible for keeping in hold for a while.

    Thanks!

    1. Srikanth,

      Yes, I can give you a free trial if you want to see if my course is right for you. The vocabulary words in my Online TOEFL Course are college-level words and will help you to improve your English and your TOEFL score dramatically. However, they will not help you during the GRE verbal section. You will need to get a different vocabulary list if you want to prepare for that exam.

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Yes, I am ready to use free trial course for a while and later can pay 45$ through the paypal account. Is it possible to keep on hold whenever going for out of station?

  61. Hi Michael,

    I would like to use trial version for 2 days so please kindly allow me to go through login portal site. I am going to make payment by this month end.

    Thanks!

    1. Srikanth,

      Type in your email for you username and password.

      Thanks,

  62. Hi Michael,

    The 7-step program is very essential and useful to my TOEFL course. I gave pre-test of grammar so where can see your comments on the test. Is their any time-table to prepare or can use which ever interested step contained in it? Please guide me with your suggestions about the course.

    Thanks.

    1. My web site will automatically score your pre-test so that you can see your results. More importantly, once you close the test and receive your score, you will be able to review specific lessons in the grammar section of my course based on your incorrect answers.

  63. Hi Michael,
    This is Abraham from Brazil. I am applying for an overseas MBA program and I have to score 100 in Toefl. I’ve tried it twice so far and performed 81 and 82 instead -se below for details.
    Question – could you help me to build a study plan to leverage my english skills to achieve the required score?
    I plan to retake the exam within 3 months from now and I have no more than 2 hours a day available for studying – would it be enough or challenging? What are your recommendation?

    Thanks

    I need scored 100 .
    I can study 10 or 12 hours a day .
    Please help me.
    Thanks
    Carlos Lazcano

    1. Carlos,

      No matter how much time you spend a day preparing, you are looking at about 12 months of study before you will be able to reach your target score of 100. You have a lot of English that you need to learn. Here is how you can do it:

      1. Months 1-4: Complete the vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation sections of my course.

      2. Then take a full-length four hour TOEFL practice test from my partner web site ScoreNexus to mark your progress: http://scorenexus.com?afmc=1f
      (If your score is close to 75, you are right on track!)

      3. Then take 3 more months completing the listening and reading sections of my course.

      4. Then take another full-length four hour TOEFL practice test from my partner web site ScoreNexus to mark your progress: http://scorenexus.com?afmc=1f
      (If your score is close to 85, you are right on track!)

      5. Then take 4 four months focusing on the writing and speaking parts of my course.

      6. Then take your final full-length four hour TOEFL practice test from my partner web site ScoreNexus to mark your progress: http://scorenexus.com?afmc=1f
      (If your score is close to 100, you are ready to take the official iBT exam!)

      7. Register to take the TOEFL iBT exam

      Since you are using my course for about a year, I will give you a 30% discount and will send you the PayPal invoice in case you do decide to join my course. My Online TOEFL Course replaces the need to study in an intensive English program so you will be able to save 1000’s of dollars!

      Good luck to you!

      Michael

  68. My last toefl ibt result is 74 . I have to get 90 score so that I have been admitted .
    Speaking: 20
    Writing: 15
    Reading:23
    Listening: 16
    I will be taking next toefl ibt exam August 27, 2017. I have been studying for one month. I thought taking30 Day- 7 Step to Pass Toefl ibt. Should I take your online course? What do you think about my score ? Can my score be increased to 90?

    I wait your recommendations.

    1. Deniz,

      Improving 16 points in 30 days is not very likely. Your chance of doing that is 25% at the most. This is particularly true because you have considerable writing and listening comprehension problems that will take 2-3 months of practice.

      Therefore, I will recommend my 90-Day TOEFL Course that will give you the practice you need: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/90-Day-7-Step-Study-Guide-1.pdf

      Look over the course outline, and, if you want to join my course, go to Day 1 and click “Join this course.”

      Good luck!

  74. Hi sir,
    I really need your help if you could make a video with respect to my problem I would be delighted. I am 15 years old, and I am taking the toefl test for the purpose of changing my high school. I want to get into KOÇ high school, which requires a score of at least 65, but the higher you get the higher chances of you getting into the school. That is why I want to use my capacity as much as possible. I would like to say that I have taken the real exam once, and I got a score of 80, which I did not really expect as I had a myriad of practices. 2 days ago, I took the toefl exam again, and currently waiting my scores to be reported. However, I really struggled when doing the listening part due to the hardness of the questions asked in the real exam. I hope that I could get a 100 this time. Like I said I hope that I can get 26 on reading, 18 listening, 27 speaking, 28 writing. I have had numerous practices for both the speaking and the writing part, so I do not expect to get something lower than 25. The main purpose of writing this to you was to ask this question. I had not seen a strategy stating that we should not write over 400 words for the independent writing task before I got into the exam. I tried to do my best in the exam, and I exceeded the world limit by 200 words. I thought I would score more if I had written more than what is needed, thus I wrote 597 words in 30 minutes of given time. When I had my toefl teacher to evalute my essay, he said that everything was okay apart from the repetitiveness at the end. I know that it is really hard to estimate my score on the grounds that you have not had the chance to have a look at it, but. I used some sophisticated language in my essay. By way of illustration, I did not say” lead to” I said “pave the way for” My essay was generally this sophisticated. Would you mind telling me if I have done a huge mistake by writing virtually 600 words also could you estimate what my score will be?
    I am looking forward to hearing from you ASAP
    Thanks for your time, Efe

    1. Efe,

      Now that some time has passed, you must have gotten your results, right? How did you do on the TOEFL exam?

      Your goal is to read 7-10 academic books during this period.

      Thanks,

  77. Are you still doing lessons? There is anyway I can contact you?

    1. Yes, I am. Email me at mbuckhoff@aol.com if you have questions.

    2. You can contact me at mbuckhoff@aol.com. Have a Happy New Year!

  78. I am helping a family friend from Costa Rica prepare for the TOEFL. I plan to purchase a course of 6 months for him to study on his own there. This summer he will come to America to study for one month with me and another teacher before he takes his exam. I prefer your method based on what I have seen, but the parts of your website that I can access are difficult to read from a mobile device (lines blend together, all the script will not fit on the screen, etc.). Will he need access to a computer to best use your course? Or are the paid courses more mobile friendly?

    1. I recommend using my course by laptop computer and not phone.

  79. Hi,
    I took TOEFL iBT test last summer and I scored 61 points, I need 80 points, I will have test on 31 April what are your recommendations?. Is it hard to get 80 points on TOEFL?
    Thank you
    Julia

    1. Julia,

      My recommendation is my 3-Month TOEFL Course.

      You will need a little more time than you think you reach your target score based on level right now.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  80. Hi, is scorenexus provide as part of the package, or I have to buy it separately?

    1. You need to buy that package separately. Go here to take a full-length practice test: http://scorenexus.com?afmc=1f

      Let me know how you score on this practice test. Also remind me again what your target score and subtotal scores are. Then I can recommend a specific plan to help you reach your goals.
