  2. Hi Mick thanks for the response, I need 80 point to admitted in the University, I already purchased your course, and I don´t know how to get my password and user. In other hand of what you said in your response, I think that I can understand Reading Section, but have a little problems in the way of organized my Speaking and Writing. My grammar it is not bad but I have to remember it basically. I have full-time for my TOEFL prep, so I hope to achieve the minimum score on this exam.

  22. Hello Michael,

    I am planning to take TOEFL IBT in few months. I have been practicing English everyday and looking for the teacher who can help me with my studying. Recently, i have just found out your online course and watched some demos. At the result, i have decided to join your English online course and tried to subscribe. Apparently, i had PayPal an account. But, i do not remember that i had created the account before. And, i have attempt to create new account. It does not work either.

    Anyways, is there any method to pay the bill? So, i would commence the course as soon as i transfer the bill.
    I hope you will respond me soon.

    Best wishes,
    Ganaa.

  23. Hi Michael,

    I took tefl test two times in the last two months.
    First time, I made a mistake without carefully read a direction that it had three listening parts(they do for a research). I took a break after listening part two and I got score as 71.
    Second time, I feel like I do it quite well more than the first time but my score still struck at 73. *sihn*

    I’m so disappoint to myself because this english score is mean everything to me; education, opportunity, life, family, love and money.
    I need 80, and I need someone to guide me.
    Thank you that you create this program, I hope to get a better score in the next month (my university deadline is 1 October). I can’t fail anymore.

    Please don’t forget to send username and password to me as soon as you can.

    Sincerely,
    Jaddy

  31. Hello Michael,
    I’ve been taking the TOEFL twice: first time was in March 2012 and got; Reading 12, Listening 15,Speaking 22 and Writing 18. Total 67
    Second time was in Sept 7th: Reading 10, Listening 19,Speaking 20 and Writing 15. Total 64
    And I need to reach at least 79 points to get into a Master Degree Program in USA. My question for you today is: do yo think I can improve my score soon?
    My next TOEFL test is this Saturday Sept. 29th
    I will apprciate your comments.

    1. Valerie,

      Congratulations on your most recent TOEFL scores! Scoring higher than 60 indicates that you are definitely advancing your academic English proficiency. Still, you have not reached your goal of 79, and you are wondering whether or not you can improve your score soon, right. It depends on what you mean by the word “soon.”

      If soon means, “Can I improve my TOEFL score by September 29th?”, the answer is no. Nevertheless, you will be able to reach your TOEFL goals, and, from my experience of teaching 1000’s of students who have enrolled or who are enrolled in my Online TOEFL Course, you will be able to improve your overall TOEFL score 5-10 points each month you use my course.

      Conversely, if soon means, “Can I improve my score from 64 to 79 in 2-3 months?”, the answer is most likely. Of course, whether or not you reach your goal depends on your consistent hard work over a period of a few months. Due to your scores of 10 and 15 on the reading and writing sections, you will need a lot of practice before showing significant progress.

      To improve your reading score, I recommend a four step approach as you complete the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course. First, make sure you are engaging in a regular routine of extensive reading for about 45 minutes each day. During this time, read adult-level longer books you have an interest in and which have multiple chapters over a few hundred pages. Reading these types of books over a few months will help you to concentrate better and even improve your speculative and critical thinking abilities in English. Second, study all the vocabulary lessons in my course and make an honest effort to learn all 1,700 TOEFL words. I even suggest that you create flash cards by writing the word on one side and the definition and sample sentence on the other. Third, in the reading section of my course, complete all the lessons helping you to understand the iBT reading question types and the strategies for answering them. Doing this will help you be a better test taker. Fourth, make sure that you complete the speed reading practice tests, and you want to strive to reach a reading speed of 300 words per minute with 80% comprehension. Achieving this reading speed will help you to concentrate and comprehend academic passages better since faster readers have fewer distractions than slower readers, hence better concentration and comprehension!

      To improve your writing score, you have a very tough road ahead of you, but you will find, if you work hard to learn the vocabulary words in my course as I suggested in the previous paragraph, you will have much better control over your word choice during the independent and integrated sections of the exam. But that is not enough. You will also need to improve your grammar usage and your writing proficiency. First, study the grammar section of my course extensively, especially lesson 7, even writing down the correct responses repeatedly until you feel comfortable with the grammar, sentence structure, and mechanics you are studying. Once you have finished the grammar section of my course, you should begin studying the independent writing lessons. Upon your completion of those lessons, complete all ten of my independent writing practice tests, especially since each practice test has a different type of TOEFL prompt. Like you did in the first part of my writing course, you should now tackle my integrated writing lessons, afterwards completing all ten of the integrated writing practice tests. And do not get frustrated if I suggest that you review some writing, grammar, or even vocabulary lessons. This is normal. Quite often, when my Online TOEFL students complete writing or speaking practice tests, I often have them review specific lessons in my course based on the particular problems that they are having.

      I apologize for the long post, but I wanted to share with you some of my ideas on how you can improve your current TOEFL score. Thank you for contacting me.

      All the best to your high-scoring TOEFL success!

      Michael

  43. Hello Michael,

    I am so depressed about my Toefl score. I had done the tests 3 times since June 8. The score are 74,76,77. I really worked hard for preparing the real tests. But I just couldn’t make a 80! Now I cannot apply my dreamed school for graduate degree, and I can’t make another exam before Dec.1. The last chance for me to take the test again will be in late Jan. 2013. I think I’m stock at this point. Could you tell me what should I do to get a much higher score, please?

    Thank you very much for your advice!

  45. Hi Michael,

    I took the TOEFL ibt in Dec. 2nd and scored 75 (Reading 15 Listening 21 Speaking 18 Writing 21), but I need 80 for an undergraduate school.

    I’m really sad right now because I’m always most confident with my reading skill. I thought I would get 25 or higher. My speaking skill is bad too.
    I will retake the test in Jan. 12th, what should I do to improve my score in just 1 month?

  47. Sherif,

    I have had about 20 Egypt students who took my course last year, so I am aware that Egypt cannot use Pay Pal. Here is the other option for you:

    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 $105.00. Here is my contact information in case you should decide to wire me $105.00: Michael Buckhoff / 13509 Buena Vista Drive / Hesperia, California 92344. Once you wire your payment, E-mail me the MTCN or pin number that Western Union gave you so that I can receive your payment. After I receive your payment, I will create your username, password, and enrollment key to The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. CLICK HERE to read in more depth about your payment options.

    Happy New Year!

    Michael

  48. Hi Michael,
    I`m Sherif, I`d like to join your TOEFL course, unfortunately, I couldn`t pay using PayPal, I didn`t find EGYPT name in the country gap while I was filling out Paypal form, so how should I pay for the course?

    your fast response will be appreciated.

  49. hi,

    what is the price for the course??

    1. Star,

  51. Hello Michael,

    I’ve tried the TOEFL exam twice, and my scores were 23 (first tme) and 22 at the second time. i’m intending to evaluate my credentials for physical therapy in the USA, but I need the 26 on the speaking section. The others sections I did fine, 25 on listening, reading and writting. For how long do you think I have to practice with your classes until I try it again?
    I’m struggled with this and the exam is expensive here in Brazil, U$ 210,00! So I’d like to try your classes and get my 26 on speaking 🙂 By the way, does your classes works with IPad?

    Thank you very much,

  64. Hello Michael

    Michael I want your advice about listening and writing. I did listening section, I had taken a real TOEFL iBT tests from ETS and during listening I listen carefully and then pay attention what they talk and discuss but when I start to find the answer, I forget some of essential things in conversation or dicsucc.
    So, about writing – huh, If honestly when I start to write an essay, I forget the academic words not all of them, sometimes it is hard to use them sometimes I forget them. As you said the vocabulary is very very important. I need your advice about listening and writing how to increase them. I have many BBC listening and english canal it calls RUSSIAN TODAY. It shows only news.
    I have got a question to you. Will I get 85-90 score if I concentrate upon TOEFL? I have not decided when to take the TOEFL iBT exam but not this month maybe in Aprel. So, I have got 1 month till the exam. What’s your answer to my question will it be possible or not?
    Beforehand Thank you very much Michael and take care of yourself 🙂

  67. Hi Michael this is me Mukhammadjon, I want to ask when the deadline ends for international students? I heard that most of University’s deadline is in April. Please tell me about. Cause after pass the TOEFL iBT exam, I will try to send my documents. You know and sir you live there please tell me about as much as you can. I’m going to take the exam in 14 or 20 April. I’m looking for 2 years colleges))
    Beforehand THANK you!

    1. Muk,

      Find a university you want to attend and then ask them what deadlines they have for international students. Many universities do not operate on the same schedule so you will want to contact the university directly or go to its web site. For example, to check deadlines at California State University, San Benardino, where I teach, you would go here: http://admissions.csusb.edu/#fall

      Thanks,

      Michael

The first time my scores were 73, then 77 and the last time 80. I am planning to do a PHd in Australia but i do not know how long it will take to reach the 93. How many hours i have to dedicate yo improve it. Could you help me??? I am very exasperating and i need to improve in a good manner. I can pay your course or whatever. Please reply me if you can help me. I saw a lot of annals that you have helped a lot of people I hope your respose.

        1. Hi Michael Thanks for your advice. I think i will start the next week. Because i will be out this weekend. These were my scores when i took the Toefl tests.

          JUN 23 R-15, L-12, S-22, W-24
          AGO 25 R-21, L-17, S-18, W-21
          OCT 6 R-20, L-18, S-22, W-20

          As you can see the last one was 5 months ago. One of my problems is that i get nervous in the listening section and i lost for a while. When the conversations started. I need to reach the 93. I looked at your website and there are two guides to improve the Toefl test in 60 days. Which one shall i have to take???. I have also another doubt about the payment i do not know what is the stuff of pay pal. If i can not do that i will ask for an account which i can deposit the money. Thank you very much and i will stay tuned to take this crash course. Because i need to improve.

          Greetings

  71. Dear Michael,

    I’ve never taken any TOEFL tests before but for the next few months I’m planning apply for a fellowship. One of the requirements is I should have a level of proficiency in English equivalent to scores of 550 (paper based) or 213 (computer based) for TOEFL and 6 for IELTS.

    Do you have any advice which kind of your Online TOEFL Course should I take? The 60-day or the 90-day? Oh, and one more question, is it okay if I just send them my TOEFL iBT score instead of Toefl scores of 550 (paper based) or 213 (computer based). I’m a little bit confused with number/score….

    Looking forward to your reply and thank you in advance.

    Cheers,

  72. Hello Michael,
    I have TOEFL exam on June. I would like to see if your TOEFL plan is going to help me if I register for that now?
    I have problems in writing and speaking areas specifically.

    1. Mahdi,

      Here are my comments to you:

      This is the 60-Day Speaking and Writing Plan I told you about in the video: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/60-Day-7-Step-Study-Guide-for-Speaking-plus-writing.pdf

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Hello Michael,
        I thank you for answering me back.
        I have to say that my exact date of exam is on June 22, 2013.
        So, I don’t have 60 days left.
        Should I still register for 60-day speaking and writing plan?

        1. Mahdi,

          Some lessons you will complete faster than others. The main thing is this: keeping posting speaking and writing practice tests until you can score 26 and 24 points. Then you know you are ready to score high on the speaking and writing sections on the actual exam.

          Thanks,

          Michael

      2. Based on this plan, I would like to see if I can get any practice for reading and listening as well?
        If no, could you please include that for me?

        1. Mahdi,

          Then I recommend this study guide for you: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/60-Day-7-Step-Study-Guide.pdf

          Thanks,

  78. hello sir,

    I have seen your many videos on you tube, it seemed me useful but i did not join your TOEFL course yet. now i want to join it but for me is too late either. i gave TOEFL exam once, i got 78 marks and again gave on 31 may 2013 just to improve my score but i think it happened worst than earlier. now i have booked 1 more exam, it is June 22nd and i have problem mainly in reading and listening. if i join your 30 days course at this time, would it help me because i don’t want to waste this upcoming exam. please suggest me.

  120. Dear Michael,
    Thank you for your good efforts in supporting TOEFL students.
    I’ve gone through many replies from your end towards similar cases, but just to make sure that I’ll be selecting the proper plan before enrolling in your on-line courses.
    My last attempt was in May 2012 and I got a score of 74, and I need 80 to enroll in an MBA program.
    I missed Jan. 2014 hoping to catch Summer or Sept. semester.
    Just to keep in your reply a specific technic regarding asnwering (Reading /listening paragraphs) since – I don’t know why – I feel little bit boring in reading all the passages so as to answer the questions properly.
    appreciate your reply,

  124. Hello, This is Fatemeh. I got 63 in my previous Toefl test in 2th March. I need your urgent assistance because, I registered for my next exam in 25th April. Unfortunately, I find your website too late. I have listed my score in each section below:
    Reading 14
    Listening 15
    Speaking 18
    Writing 16
    In my previous exam, I had shocked and because of my high level of stress, I couldn’t focused in Reading section. So, I couldn’t even read the passage and I just remembered clicking in some answers. Moreover, In the listening part, I wasted 5 min for answering on question. Consequently, In the full of stress condition, I answered them unconsciously. When my speaking test started, In familiar topic, I answered both of topics with the same sentences. Obviously, It was totally unrelated for one of them. Finally, I couldn’t be on time in independent writing section and my conclusion had not been complete.
    So, considering my descriptions, what’s your tape on that? I am looking forward to hearing your idea.

  125. Hi Michael, I’ve taken the test thrice now. My 1st score was 98 speaking 24, 2nd 101 speaking 23, 3rd 101 speaking 24. I need to get a 26 in speaking, what do I do? I made a call to TOEFL, they said I would have requested a rescore but for having added a recipient. I need to take the exam asap. Am beginning to get frustrated. Thank you.

    2. Ani,

      Here are my video comments to you:

      Here are some tips from a student who got 109/120:

      Ok, so here are some suggestions for those of you trying to get a good score at the TOEFL iBT. This might be quite long so i would like to apologize in advance.

      I’m 23 years old, i’m from Brazil and i currently live in its capital city, Brasília. I’ve just graduated in International Relations (International Studies in some countries) and i’m aiming for an MBA in International Business and/or Foreign Trade.

      The most important thing in my opinion is to be in contact with the English language on a daily basis, especially through newspapers and magazines. I’ve been studying English for quite a while now but nothing helped me as much as reading books, articles, news and texts by myself. Get a good dictionary to improve your vocabulary. If you manage to do that on a daily basis, 6 months prior to your TOEFL test should be enough. So, let’s move to the test itself:

      In the first half of the test you’ll have to report a bunch of information and specific details. So even if you’re able to understand everything you also need to memorize lots of stuff. So make good use of your notes, especially for the Listening Section.

      READING SECTION: Use your notes and try to summarize each paragraph of the passage in 4 or 5 words at most. That will be important for you to remember the main ideas of each paragraph and it should make it easier if you want to find any specific information. You’ll lose too much time trying to read everything again, so try to create some sort of “map” or reference. Again, here the notes will have to be brief because the clock will be ticking for you. Here’s an example; if the passage is about, say Leonardo daVinci, do something like this:
      Paragraph 1 > Leonardo, birthplace, childhood
      Paragraph 2 > First paintings, influences
      Paragraph 3 > Most famous painting Mona Lisa
      Paragraph 4 > Final years, legacy

      LISTENING SECTION: The key here is to make good use of you notes. Try writing down as much information as you can while the conversation is going on, but be careful. Try to pick the overall ideas from what you’re hearing. Also, some parts are a dead giveaway of what the questions will be like. So don’t forget to note things like:
      1 > The person’s own opinion about a certain topic
      2 > The order in which events unfold (sometimes it could be scrambled)
      3 > Detailed information or description of a certain program or object
      4 > Comparing or contrasting two or more things
      Remember, these small details are contained within the most important questions, the ones worth 2 or 3 points!

      10 minute brake (Take a chocolate bar with you, it helps a lot lol)

      There’s something very important about the following sections: Be aware that in some cases you’re asked to deliver your own opinion and sometimes you’ll have to report what you’ve heard or read. So read the instructions carefully and do as requested. Also, avoid at all costs repeating “like this… like that”, “things”, “stuff”. Get a good understanding of transitions and improve your vocabulary. You must realize that sometimes it is better to get organized and have some sort of plan than speak with a perfect accent or write every word correctly. Practice here is fundamental. Remember, in the second half of the test you’ll be asked to deliver and to create content rather than simply “understand” what is presented to you.

      SPEAKING SECTION: To improve your pronunciation and accent try watching american movies or news channels (those helped me a lot) and pay attention to the way americans (or british, whatever) speak. A great and funny example is “Internet”. While most people will say ‘inTERnet’ most americans will say ‘inNERnet’. Things like that. But the most important thing for me here is; try to come up with a “stock”, basic answer. Something pre-conceived or previously rehearsed. If you’re asked what is your favorite book try something like this:
      Introduction > My favorite book is _______ for 3 main reasons.
      1st reason > It was the first book i ever read and it got me interested in literature.
      2nd reason > I did a school project about it and i got a good score out of it.
      3rd reason > I personally met the author and he was very polite.
      Closure > For those reasons i would say that ______ is my favorite book.
      Use your notes to plan and try to structure your response. Practice a few times before the test and memorize some transitions such as “although”, “therefore”, “however”, “moreover” and use some uncommon words for vocabulary.

      WRITING SECTION: Basically the same thing as the previous section. Try to organize your responses in a certain pattern, separating very clearly introduction, main point 1,2 and 3 and wrap up with a conclusion. Try to do each part within a single paragraph so it becomes even clearer. In the first part of the Writing, you will you have to compare a reading passage with a lecture. Try to take notes into 2 columns (one for the text and another for the lecture) and 5 lines (intro, point 1, 2 and 3 and conclusion). If you do that it will be easier to compare both the reading and the lecture and your paragraphs will be very organized, in order and easy to understand. Once again, divide each section in one or two paragraphs at most and make use of transitions and some different words. For the second writing task you can use your personal beliefs, preferences and opinions, but the structure should be similar.

      So that’s it. I hope it was helpful. Good luck everyone and thanks again Michael for the opportunity.

      1. Thank you,i’ll let you know my result and experiences

    I am Oriana Circelli from Venezuela, I just book to present the toefl test for June 28 and a lot of people told me about you.

My situation is this one: As I plan to present the toefl test on June, I plan to present the Gmat test on July. I have been studding for the past 3 weeks for the Gmat exam because I heard that studying for Gmat, TOEFL would be easier, but Im not sure if that is true and also I need a minimum toefl score of: 105 and I don’t know at this point, how far I am from that goal, this would be my first time taking the exam.

    All the help you can provide me I would be very appreciated.

  132. Hi Mr. Michael,
    I’m sending you this message to explain my situation. I’m a foreign pharmacist trying to become a certified pharmacist in California. My problem is passing the TOEFL test with the score of:
    Reading 22
    Listening 21
    Writing 24
    Speaking 26
    So far I have reading 19, listening 22, writing 24, and speaking 23.
    I have been trying to get this score since 2010. I have another 10 months to pass the test and after that time the CA board of pharmacy will close my file.

  142. Hi Micheal,

    I did learn a lot by watching your youtube videos, which got me here. I haven’t taken the test before, so I don’t how high my score would be, but I’ve been preparing for the exam for almost 3 months and I am planing to sign up for it in 4 weeks. Can you help me with writing and speaking? I am struggling with these two tasks the most. The 30- Day TOEFL Study seems suitable for me, but I don’t know. ı will be waiting for your answer. Thanks a lot for your help.

  146. Hi Micheal,
    My brother recommended me your website because thanks to you he had a big scholarship from Lawrence University. I had just finished a TOEFL iBT foundation course (score 50-60) at a English center, my teacher said that my listening, speaking skill need to be praticed more. About writing, my teacher said I have good ideas but i have problem in how to decribe that. In addition i found my vocabulary is poor. My goal is 92 in the next 2-3 months. I hope you’ll suggest the most suitable course for me. Thank you so much!

    4. Hi Michael:
      My name is Annie,
      I have taken TOEFL with score of Reading 14, Speaking22, Listening 25, Writing 20. My goal is 25/section. I studied 8 hours per day, just read a lot and listening a lot. Yet in the real test, I found out that I did not have enough time to finish my reading, and I get really nervous on my speaking part, so I will speak unnaturally. And I memories some voca for my writing, and I tried as detail as possible, but I still could not get my writing above 25. I took several times of TOEFL practices test at home. But I cannot get my score over 85. I want to take it in Jan 24th again, so I do not know what should I do now to improve.

      1. Annie,

  165. Hello dear Michael,

    I am going to take the TOEFL test in the end of May and I am really nervous about “speaking” part of the test. Unfortunately, I haven’t had an opportunity to talk to native speakers much as I would want. And I notice that my speech is kinda “mixed”. It’s not coherent, though I try to use signal words…And I really start worrying too much when began to speak and I feel like my brain is just a mess!
    What should I do to improve my speech?

    Thank you!

  166. Dear Michael,
    It is the second time I will run a TOEFL test. The first I have got 66, but I have got in trouble for the reading section (only 8 out of 30) which is definitely my strengthen section (listening 24; speaking 15 and writing 19 ).
    Also, as you can imagine speaking section is very hard for me and for those whose do not practice English language skills daily.
    Well, due I have one month to get ready and to attend the test, do you believe it is possible to get confident in speaking section and will score 85 at least?
    What would you advice me to reach that goal in one month?
    Regards
    Alex who is planning to study abroad.

  170. Hi Michael,

    I was so confused about how to initiate studying for TOEFL till today that I saw your video in YouTube by chance. I am so excited about finding your website and seeing how people are satisfied about your works.I briefly tell about myself:

    1- I took TOEFL IBT before coming to the U.S in back home (Iran) and was 68 and after getting here, I took English classes at Fresno State and got 550 in TOEFL PBT. I started my MBA program at Fresno State and graduated by GPA 4. Definitely my English got better after 2 years being students and also after working in a company at Fresno at the same time.

    2-The reason I got back to TOEFL again is because of having plan B, if my employers don’t apply H1 visa for me. The plan B is applying for PHD and getting Scholarship which needs TOEFL more than 100 and GMAT more than 700 for top universities.
    I am thinking to get a TOEFL 105 ( or even 100): Reading : 27 Listening: 25 Writing:26 Speaking: 27 ( Here is the result of the Exam I took 2 years ago ( Sept 22 2012) was Reading: 18, Listening: 14, Speaking: 17 and Writing 18)
    3-I work 8 am till 5 pm 5 days a week and am free on evening and weekends. I can spend 3 hours during the week and minimum 16 hours on weekends. I am thinking to spend 2 months for TOEFL.( IS it enough?)

  174. Hi Mr Buckhoff,

    My name is Vanessa Carmagnole and I’m from Montreal. I found you by look for test preparation online.

    I need to take the TOEFL exam for my application to graduate school in the United States. I have taken the TOEFL in January, however I have a total score of 68. I scored 8 in reading, 15 in listening, 23 in speaking and 22 in writing. Consequently it is not enough for the program I am applying to. I need a total score of 100 with 25 in reading, 25 in listening, 23 in speaking and 27 in writing.

    I can either take the test on March 23 or June 6. I’m ready to work very hard as I know that I am limited in time. I would need to know if it is possible to go from a 68 score to a 100 in a month or less. Please understand that it is important for me to give it a shot because the school is waiting for these grades to proceed with my application. Could you please help me?

    Best,

    Vanessa

  176. Hello respected Mr. Michael
    I have been searching for the best resource to study for the TOEFL. I took that exam more than one month ago and I just got 69 (R19, L12, S18, W20) . I teach English as foreign language but I didn’t prepare for the test and I also rusty about English because of my new job was not challenging . I have chosen to join you program and that’s why I would like to know something before paying.
    How many sample or placement test can I take through your program?
    How are the feedbacks you give regarding writing and speaking?
    How to pay because I don´t have credit card.
    My target is to reach at least 80 because a scholarship was offered to me.
    I am willing to study at least 5 hours a day during almost 2 months, do you think is it possible to improve 11 o more points?
    Thank you very much for your reply.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  178. Hi Michael,

    I have subscribed to your online TOEFL course by paying through PayPal account. I have subscribed few minutes ago. I haven’t yet received any username and password email yet. How long does it takes? I will appreciate your quick response.

    FYI: I had TOEFL ibt once (on May 2nd, 2015). I am here because I want 26+ speaking score. My next TOEFL ibt is scheduled on July 11 and my last TOEFL ibt scores were: R:22; S:18; L:26 and W:26.

    Thanks!
    Ajay

    1. Ajay,

      My teaching assistant enrolled you in my course yesterday. To help you reach your goal, I recommend my 30-Day TOEFL Speaking Study Guide: http://www.bettertoeflscores.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/30-Day-Lesson-Plan-for-TOEFL-Speaking.pdf

      However, since your score is 18/30 right now, it is not realistic to expect an 8 point improvement by July 11, 2015. In fact, you could be looking at three or more months of practice before you overcome the delivery, language use, and topic delivery problems that you have. The main thing now is for you to start posting speaking practice tests for me to comment on, and, once you are consistently scoring above 26 points on these speaking tasks, then you will be ready to take the TOEFL exam again.

      Watch this video to see how to post speaking practice tests at my Online TOEFL Course:

      Also, when you post a speaking practice test, be sure to introduce yourself first and tell me that your goal is to get 26 points or higher.

      Good luck!

      Michael

    2. Hi Ajay,
      I am also taking toefl on July 11, 2015. I would like to practice with you. Where do you live? I live in NYC. Please feel free to contact me for speaking practice.

  179. Hello Michael,

    I’ve just joined and paid via Paypal, didn’t receive username and password
    most likely i need to do placement test like the others,
    kindly let me know if i need to do something else.

    Best Regards,

      What is your current TOEFL score, including subtotals in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections?

      What target score do you want to get, including subtotals in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections?

      If you can answer both of these questions, I will be able to recommend a specific study plan to help you reach your goals.

  192. Hi I got r20L15s18w17 total 70 on my first toefl experience. I want to ask a question. If I subscribe this site how can I reach resources? I couldn’t see any login and signup segments. secondly I am really confused what to do. I only need a 75 sp.20 but if I get a 87 it will be better for me. I come across many toefl courses which are online. I don’t know which one should I choose, how long should I study to get my target toefl score. I have some works to do how long should I study per day to get successful. thanx 4 ur response..

  193. Hello! Pls, can Android phone work with your online course or will I need a p.c. also, I don’t really understand the voxopop discussion group and how will I use my phone to send response especially the speaking section

    1. Hammed,

      I am not sure whether or not Android will work with my Voxopop Discussion Group. If it does not, you can send me your independent and integrated speaking practice tests by e-mail so that you get the TOEFL iBT speaking practice you need to improve your score to 26 points or higher.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  194. Dear Sir,

    I am student form Thailand. I need to have a official TOEFL document before I join in University. My questions are how can practice your online program, because it request user name and passwords when enter it. Another reason what and how should I do to get practice in you online TOEFL practice test.

  195. Hi Michael,
    I need to get 105+ score in TOEFL ibt test, can you please suggest me tips and how to prepare for the test, so that I can improve my scores.

    Thanks & Regards.

    1. S,

      What is your current TOEFL score, including subtotals in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections? If I know these scores, I can better address your questions on how to get a 105.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  197. Hi Michael,

    I have to get 85 in 3,5 months. About 6 months ago I got 6,5 w IELTS Academic ( L:7, R:7, W:6, S: 5,5).

    What do you suggest? Do you think that I can reach that goal in 3,5 months. I can take one of your courses if you think that it would be much better (e.g. 60-Day Online TOEFL Course 7-Step Study Guide Focusing on Vocabulary, Pronunciation, Grammar, Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking).

    Please help me 🙂
    Thank you in advance,

  198. Hi, If I subscribe to your 7-step system will you review one writing essay AND one speaking. or will you review one essay or one speaking. thank you.

    1. My basic rule so that students do not abuse my inexpensively yet highly effective Online TOEFL Course is this: only send me ONE speaking and ONE writing practice per day for me to score. Compared to other TOEFL courses on the Internet, my course is almost free to my users. Many Online TOEFL Courses do not allow users to send up to 30 speaking and 30 writing practice tests each month for the TOEFL iBT speaking and writing specialists to score. How can I afford to do this? I spend no money on advertising, and I keep my course small. Typically no more than 100 users take a course on a monthly basis. In fact, do not even tell your friends about my course because it will make me too busy since I also teach four composition classes at California State University, San Bernardino. My goal is to reach out to international students in a small way and to help them reach their TOEFL goals without busting their budgets.

      1. my toefl scre is 95. i need to improve. i need to get around 105.

  199. I will pay and buy your course in a few days but My last question is that:
    Me and my close friend want to use your course with one account. Because we don’t need 30 writing and speaking review per month. we need time to build our skills. Second reason is reducing the cost. If you are busy I think you will benefit. we are always in touch and we don’t send you more than one response. If it is unsuitable for you let me know.
    Thanx 4 ur response
    best regards.

    1. Mustafa,

      No, only one user should be using my course per $38. My course is mostly non-profit, so, if both of you use it at the same time, you will cost me more money per month than you are paying. In fact, consider making an extra donation to help me keep the cost of my course lower for everyone.

      Therefore, you and your friend cannot use my course at the same time for one low price. Your friend will need to pay separately.

      Thanks,

      Michael

    2. Oh my god! this guy seems Brazilian! $38 dollars and he wants to share the same account?

  200. Dear Michael Buckhoff,

    Firstly, I’d like to thank you for all free resources you’ve made available, they’ve been of great help (I haven’t had the opportunity to join your full course yet, I’m planning to do so, though). But let’s get down to business, I have never taken the TOEFL iBT test and I’ve got about 2 months to prepare. Furthermore, I can easily cope with reading and listening sections. However, I’m completely hopeless facing both writing and speaking tasks. By the way, I’m particularly frightened by vocabulary lessons, thus, if possible, avoid overwhelming vocabulary lists. Do you think you can help me achieve a score of 100?

    I never have taken the test,and I plan to take it on April,I want to join your online courses but I don’t know what level am I,since I never take the test.I need a study paln too.
    I was plan to join today,but I will wait until get answer from you.

    Thank you

    1. Yasameen,

      What are your TOEFL goals? For example, what overall score do you want to get and what subtotal scores do you need in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections of the exam?

      Happy New Year 2016!

      Michael

    2. Thank you for reply,I want to study master degree of architecture and the requirement is pass TOEFL exam with 120 scour.I’m not sure about the scour for each section I think they don’t mind they just want my scour is 120.I’m live in USA and this is the requirements for u.s university

      1. Yasameen,

        Are you sure you need a score of 120–the highest score you can get on the test. Most graduate programs require a minimum of 80-81/120. It is not realistic to try to get a perfect score of 120.

        Michael

        1. Thank you !! Yes I asked them today they asking 79 for toefl IBT.I want to enroll your courses with study plan to get my goal scour in 3 months,my test will be in April,but my concern is I dont know what is my english level.I live in U.S.A for 5 years,and my English is pretty good.

          1. Y,

            Here are my video comments to you:

            As I said in the video, you will need to take a full-length iBT practice test so that you and I can know your level. Go to http://scorenexus.com to register to take a full-length TOEFL iBT practice test and enter the coupon code MBuc2f42v5 so that you can get a 10% discount.

            Once you take the practice test, send me an e-mail letting me know 1) What your overall score is and 2) what you subtotal scores are in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections. Then I can develop a study plan that will best help you to reach your goals.

            Respectfully,

            Michael

          2. Thank you for fast replay,I will take the test tonight, and I will let you know my scores as soon as I finish the test,can I join the courses now?or I have to wait until finish the test and send you the scores?

          3. Y,

            You can join my course whenever you think the time is right.

            Thanks,

            Michael

          4. I took the full-length TOEFL iBT practice test,and my score came very low,I got 46,I’m doing good at speaking and listing ,my weekness is at reading and writing,and that what I expect since I live in U.S,my speeking and listing are good but my academic reading and writing are week
            My score is 9 reading , 1 writing,20 listing ,17 speaking
            I would love if you get me a good plan to improve my reading and writing,also do you think If I study 3 month I can improve my score?Or I need more time since my score is very bad.

            Thank you

          5. Y,

            Now that we have a starting point, I can make progress on helping you to reach your goals. Your score right now is 46/120, with subtotals of 9, 1, 20, and 17 on the reading, writing, listening, and speaking sections.

            Remind me again of your target score. What dream score would you like to get, including your overall score and subtotal scores in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections?

            I am looking forward to hearing from you. With this new information, I will be able to recommend a plan to help you reach your goal. I am guessing that, based on your low subtotal scores in the speaking and writing sections, you will need much more than three months before you will be able to reach your goal.

            Thanks,

            Michael

          6. I subscribed to your courses yesterday, My goal is to get 79 scour to apply for a master degree,the most important for me is to get good grade at writing and reading sections,I’m waiting for your plan to start study,also do you know how many hours I need to study per day,I’m a full job employee.

          7. Y,

  202. Dear Michael,
    I took a Toefl mock a moth ago and i get a score of 86. However, I need at least 90. I’m going to take the toefl in January 30!!! And I’m really worried about it. I’ve been studying in several institutions in my country but I think they are not so good.
    Do you think you can help me to achieve a score of 100 in 20 days?!
    Thank you!
    Alexia.

    1. AB,

      No, in my opinion, it is not very likely that you can improve from 86 to 100 in 20 days. You are looking at approximately 2-3 months of consistent study before reaching that goal.

      Thanks,

      Michael

    2. AB,

      If you want extra practice and if you join my Online TOEFL Course, you can start submitting writing and speaking practice tests at my Online TOEFL Course. Within a couple of days, you will be able to see how close to 25 you are scoring on your speaking and writing practice tests.

      Good luck!

  204. Dear Mr Buckhoff,

    I have small problem and I hope that you can find out a way for me through it. I did the Toefl ibt twice in the last couple of months as a pre-requisite for the medical training in Canada and they need Total 96 and minimum 24 in each component. Actually I got 94 & 96 consequently in the last two exams. The last one was : Listening: 24 Reading: 24 Writing: 25 Speaking: 23, the big struggle is for speaking section which I got 23 twice, and it seems that I am just stuck with this score, So my question is how can I get a guarantee of 24 score in speaking? Please note that I have just registered today in your online course for two months and appreciate if you send me the username and password. Best regards. Zyzz shembesh

    1. L,

      My Online TOEFL Course is one of the cheapest but most effective tools you could ever use. Perhaps, some time in the future, you will be able to save a bit of money to enroll in my course. I would love to have you as a student, but I can not offer my services for free.

      I apologize : (

      Michael

      1. I understand through your response that this website is not to educate student, however it is actually for getting money.

        I apologize, my father .

        1. JB,

          You are correct. This is a web site that sells TOEFL services to international students preparing for the TOEFL iBT exam. My education web site is found at http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/login/index.php .

          Good luck to you!

          Michael

  209. When I am out of station for accessing online course would like to use those days on available time period at home. Is it there anything to put pause for those days in case of feeling fear about money and to get used in a convent duration?

    1. SB,

      Having access to my Online TOEFL Course is based on one low monthly fee. There is no way to pause my Online TOEFL Course. You will be billed the same monthly fee regardless of how much or how little you use it.

      If you do not think you will have time to use my course, then you should not enroll. Wait until you think you have more time. Improving your academic English and ultimately your TOEFL score requires that you diligently study on a daily basis for several months.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  210. Hi Michael,

    I’m thrilled to have stumbled upon your Youtube channel, which then led me to your website. I’m blown away by the sheer amount of devotion and dedication you’ve put into setting up this TOEFL prep website and your Youtube channel. Cheers!

    I’m interested in joining your course, but I have a question:

    Are the monthly subscription that allows me to access your library of prep materials and your TOEFL speaking and writing corrective feedback two different services on offer?

  211. Hi Michael,

    I learned after browsing a bit more that those two services are included in the only subscription you offer. Just letting you know that my question for that has been taken care of.

    I also wanted to tell you (just to be sure) that I’ve subscribed to your course. I’m looking forward to receiving your email with a new username and password and getting started on your awesome course!

    Best,

    I really need to improve my Toefl score. I got 50 (13, 11, 13, 13) in my previous Toefl exam which is very low. I need to take it again for my academic purpose and have to score at least 80 to meet my college’s requirement. I have about 3 months to practice. I am very interested about your course and really need some helps. Could you give me some advice or any plans to improve my score?

    Thank you.

  219. Dear Michael buckhoff,

    How are you doing Sir?, It has been a while since last time when I was a student at your online course which was such a rich and beneficial experience for me in all the aspects.So I had my Toefl iBT results and unfortunately I got 23 in speaking again! ( 3rd time in a row). Total score is 99 Reading 25, Writing 25, Listening 26, despite working hard on your course for a couple of months. I am a little disappoint right now for not getting my desired score in speaking which as you know is 24. Therefore, I am planning to take your course for another two months starting late next week, and I hope that you work with me to assist me and help me to get out of my present score! Thank you and waiting to hearing from you. M.S

    1. Here are my comments to you:

      1. Dear Michael,

        I’ve sent to your email my Speaking score report as you requested. Regards. M.S

        1. Ok. I will take a look at the score report in the morning.

    Well, in a couple of months I will make the TOEFL IBT test, to be exactly, will be on August. And I been through a lot videos on You tube, and watched one of your videos, and I so interested to take your course, but I have a doubt, I want through you website, and the cost is 45 dollars, the question is, Is that the cost for all the course monthly, or is for each practice.

  221. Hi Professor Michael,

    On 3 June 2016: R-16; L-22; S-23; W-20 Total:81

    I require a total of 89 and 26 in speaking. I am struggling to break the threshold. Each time the scores keep on varying in different sections. My scores deteriorated when i took 6 months gap to prepare in the most recent test. Professor could you please help me in getting my required score. What do you suggest how much time should i take to prepare.

  224. I have taken Toefl test 1 years ago. I think my score is not good about 20 in reading, 17 in listening, 19 in Writing and 18 in speaking. Overall is 74.
    I also took Ielts test last 6 months ago. The overall score is 6 with 6 in reading, 6 in speaking, 6 in writing and 5.5 in listening.
    Now i’m studying master degree in country that do not use english as the first language so my english skill is not better as should be. I’m not confident to use english in speaking and written.

    I would like to get Toefl score to 90-100 in order to apply scholarship in USA next year.

    Therefore i’m interested to take your online course and i would like to have your suggestion for my strategy in order to achieve my goal.

  235. Hi,

    I took the TOEFL and my grades is as follows

    Reading 27
    Listening 28
    Speaking 23
    Writing 18

    the thing is that I need 24 in writing and 26 in speaking for my degree equivalency, do you have a specific course helping me to get those scores?

  236. I’ve paid the course fee but I haven’t gotten the ID. Could send it to me, please?

    I gave test 2 times and got 70-72 but I need the score between 80-100 and 26 in the speaking.

    1. Hi Michael, Thank you so much for your quick response. I’m definitely going to take this course within the next 7 days. I have taken the TOFEL once, my grades are R: 23, L: 24, S: 20 :<( W: 23 I need at least 26 at S and 24 at W. I hope I'll be ready to take the TOEF Again after 2 months of working with you. Thank you and have a great weekend 🙂

  237. Hello Mickael!
    I see that some students that have paid for your course are asking for you to enroll them. Since, I’d love to take the course, I’d need to know if the enrollment is not automatic, since I need to start practicing from minute 0 after I pay. The other concern that I have, is that I see that the YT link t your video is no actually working or you are offline so, my question is: how often/when can I watch your YT if You have any.

    P.S. Please, colud you answer me ASAP? since, this is the only online course that I think could help me out with this “the most dificult step for me to get something in my life” Test

    🙂

    Thank you so much,

    Jany

    1. Jany,

      Here are my video comments to you:

        Thank uuuuu

        Jany

        1. Jany,

          I just sent you your username and password information to your e-mail address. However, the email address that you are using is different from the one you are using here. Therefore, check the e-mail address in the name of Rolando in order to get the password and username information.

          Thanks,

          Michael

        2. Jany,

          Spend more time focusing on the pronunciation and speaking sections of my course since you need to improve your speaking from 20 to 26+.

          Michael

  238. Hi Michael,
    I have scored 85 on a toefl ibt and need to get 100. Can you tell me if it is possible to get there in a month? Below are my scores for each section.
    S:26
    R: 20
    W: 21
    L: 18

    1. Chahat,

      No, it is not possible for you to make these kinds of improvements in 30 days.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  239. Hello,

    Down below are my scores from each sections.

    reading 23
    listening 25
    speaking 22
    writing 21

    So i scored 91 overall. What can you advice me to get over 100? How many days should i study and what kind of specific trainings i should do?

    Thanks

    1. Improving your score from 91 to 100 is possible to achieve in 1-2 months if you focus on the speaking and writing sections, the two lowest subtotal scores from your most recent TOEFL exam results. If you decide to join my course, consider using my lessons in the following ways to maximize your chances of reaching your 100+ target TOEFL score.

      First of all, complete the pronunciation pre-test so I can diagnose your specific problems with vowel and consonant sounds of English. Then, once you have mastered these lessons, complete the second pronunciation pre-test–this one focusing on grammatical word endings, word stress, sentence rhythm, intonation, and thought groups and blending. Similarly, study the recommended lessons so that you can speak more clearly.

      Second of all, start completing independent and integrated speaking practice tests so I can become more familiar with your delivery, language-use, and topic development problems that are bringing down your score. Based on your weaknesses, I will recommend specific lessons to help you improve. Your goal is to send me 3-5 speaking practice tests weekly, and I will give you quality TOEFL speaking feedback afterward. Once time per week, take up to 60 minutes to write out your speaking practice test so that you can focus on the vocabulary, grammar, organization, and development of your ideas. Then practice your response several times and finally post your response for me to listen and comment on.

      Third of all, to help you with both speaking and writing areas, go through the listening and reading lessons in my Online TOEFL Course and 1) Take notes on the main and most important support points. 2) Use your notes to answer the comprehension test questions. 3) Give 3-5 60-second oral summaries weekly. 4) Write 3-5 250 written summaries. The speaking and writing that you practice here does not needed to be graded by me or anyone else. The purpose of this practice is to help you improve your language use and grammar and to help make you more comfortable speaking and writing about someone else’s ideas.

      Lastly, you should start studying the independent and integrated writing lessons and then start completing writing practice tests that my teaching assistant will grade and comment on. If you want me to correct the errors in ONE of your independent or integrated writing practice tests, you will need to pay and additional $50. Having me error correct ONE of your independent or integrated writing practice tests can be important for you since I will tell you in a 30-60 minute video what problems are bringing your score down and what changes you need to make in your writing so that you can score higher. If you can not afford to make the additional payment, you are not obligated to pay for that service. Focus on completing 3-5 writing practice tests each week and try different types of writing techniques to see what gives you better results. I had a student last year who, in the a six week period, completed 35 writing practice tests at my Online TOEFL Course, and he improved his writing score from 21 to 29 points. Of course, every case is different, so I am not predicting the exact same results for you.

      In conclusion, following these pronunciation, speaking, and writing suggestions will help you to improve. Other students have already followed this path and have gotten very good results. Therefore, take the first step and join my course so that you can send me your pronunciation pre-test.

  240. Hello sir iam an upper intermediate student and i need 110 in toefl to apply in harvard university ,i have 6 months to prepare is it possible to achive this much in this period of time
    Sincerely
    Erfan. Sharifi.

    1. Irfan,

      It is unlikely that you can score that high. However, what is your current TOEFL score, including subtotals in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections?
      If you are already over 100, it may be possible.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  241. Hello sir iam from Afghanistan but my country is not among the countries list what should i have to do?

    1. Erfan,

      Do you have access to Western Union? Or, can you have someone from another country use his/her PayPal account to register you for my course?

      Thanks,

      Michael

  242. Hello Michael
    I want to subscribe but I don’t want to open a PayPal account only for that. Is it another way to subscribe to the course?

    1. Silvana,

      You have one other choice. Go here to learn about how to make a Western Union payment: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/faqs-2/

      Thanks,

      Michael

  243. Hello sir;
    After passing my best regards to you and your dynamic team, I am Suhrab from Afghanistan and i have been searching a course to improve my English for a long time, fortunately this side seems to be useful for me. However, this side contains information, but i need more information regard the courses belonging to this site. First, well you help me with writing section by checking my writings and sending feedback?. Second, how long it might take for an individual to be successfully ready?. Third, Will I receive only the video lessons or, some other materials too, such as books, test papers and correction reviews?.

    Sincerely

    1. Yes, your monthly subscription gives you the opportunity to send me independent and integrated writing practice tests on a daily basis, and my teaching assistant will read, evaluate, and send you your score on each practice test that you submit. Similarly, you can also send me independent and integrated speaking practice tests, and I will listen to, evaluate, score, and provide 3-6 minutes of audio feedback helping you understand delivery, language-use, and topic development problems that you may have. My rule for both speaking and writing is that you should not send me more than ONE speaking or writing practice test every 24 hours. That way I have enough time to provide feedback to all of my Online TOEFL Course students.

      How long it will take you to be ready for the TOEFL iBT depends on your current academic English language abilities and the target score you want to get. Generally, most students can improve about 5 to 10 points for each month that they use my Online TOEFL Course. For example, let’s suppose your current English language abilities are intermediate, and your TOEFL score is around 50. If you want to improve your score to 80, most likely you will need to use my Online TOEFL Course for 3-6 months before you will be able to achieve your goal. After using my course for a month or so, you can check your readiness for the actual TOEFL exam by taking a practice test at my partner Web Site ScoreNexus at which you can take a full-length five hour TOEFL iBT practice test: http://scorenexus.com?afmc=1 If your score on the practice test is the same or higher than your target score, you should register to take the official TOEFL exam. If it is lower, then you need to continue to study until you are ready.

      After you subscribe to my Online TOEFL Course and make your first PayPal payment, I will send you an e-mail with your username and password so that you can have access to more than 700 vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking lessons. In addition to the video lessons, you will have access to PDF files, content placed on specific web pages, and even an 150 page e-book to help you improve your vocabulary. Like I said before, your payment also allows you to complete and get correctional feedback on your independent and integrated speaking and writing practice tests that you submit. Additionally, I will also give you correctional feedback when you send me pronunciation practice exercises.

      Many other courses such as TestDen, Notefull, Magoosh, and ETS’ TOEFL iBT Online Course do not offer this type of feedback because it is costly and time consuming to hire TOEFL iBT speaking and writing specialists to do this type of grading. I am able to offer this service because I have a small Internet presence with only about 60 students enrolling in my course monthly, and I do not do any adversing. Thus, my operating costs are lower than most other TOEFL service companies. In fact, you may have found my course by accident because you will not see it advertised anywhere on the Internet.

  244. Hello Michael
    My name is Victoria. I took the TOEFL several times and I always pass the Reading part with 23 or higher and Listening 25 or higher BUT my problem is the Speaking and writing Part of the test. I got 24 on Speaking and 21 on Writing on my last test. I feel frustrated because I need a tutor who can tell me what I’m doing wrong. I have a list of several sites that teach TOEFL so my questions for you are: how can you help me? and how long do you think will take to get S:26 and W:24?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Victoria,

      Yes, I can help you reach your goals. Here is how you can do it after joining my course (And my tuition will not bust your budget!)

      1. Complete my pronunciation pre-test so you can see what your problems are with vowels, consonants, syllable division, grammatical word endings, word stress, sentence rhythm, and thought groups and blending. After you get my feedback, study the recommended lessons online and you can e-mail me your voice recording practice if you want me to monitor your pronunciation.

      2. Start sending me independent and integrated speaking practice tests daily, and I will provide 3-6 minutes of audio feedback to help you see your delivery, language use, and topic development problems. In many cases, I will recommend specific lessons in my course to help you address the speaking problems you are having. To see what type of speaking feedback you can get, go to my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLH9Un-a8tO4K9aY6HSoRl24q5EsVdGiVg

      3. Start sending me independent and integrated writing practice tests daily, and I will provide some basic feedback so you can see what your writing score is and why. However, I will not correct all the errors in your essays, at least not for the $45 monthly fee. I have an additional service that will support you if you need me to error correct your essays. My additional cost to error correct ONE of your essays is $50. To see how my error correction process works, go to my You Tube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmvsF7R_wyE&list=PLH9Un-a8tO4KRsdfbNGpjw1akUXL9JiAt

      Based on your current scores and your goal of getting 26 and 24 on the speaking and writing sections of the exam, you will most likely need about 3 months before you will reach your target scores.

      To help you as you compare my Online TOEFL Course to others on the Internet, here is what you will get for a monthly price of $45:

      Unlimited access to all 700 of my vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking lessons

      Opportunity to send me 60 seconds of pronunciation or speaking practice by email every 24 hours plus feedback provided by me

      Opportunity to send me ONE independent or integrated writing practice test every 24 hours plus feedback provided by my TOEFL iBT writing specialist who has read and scored 1000’s of essays

      E-mail assistance all the time (although it may take me about a day to get back to you)

      Good luck!

      Michael

Remember that you can send me ONE speaking and ONE writing practice test every 24 hours for scoring, after which I will provide extensive high quality audio and written feedback to help you understand and improve upon your speaking and writing weak points.

    1. Mandeep,

      I checked my PayPal account and I checked my payment portal which accepts credit cards. I can not find any record of your having made a payment of $49 for my 1-month TOEFL course.

      Right now, I will send you two invoices discounting the speaking and writing courses that you are thinking about joining.

      Check your e-mail for that.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  252. Hello Professor Buckhoff,
    My name is Paula and I live in Las Vegas. I took the TEOFL exam in February, 2017. The Nevada Board of Nursing requires a total score of 84, with 26 in speaking. My total score was 61 (16 in reading, 17 in listening, 17 in speaking, and 11 in writing). I heard about you from a Pharmacist who was able to pass after using your course. Please can you help me to increase my score and pass the TOEFL exam. I am not young but I am happy to learn. I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you,
    Paula

    1. Paula,

      I live about 200 miles south of you in Oak Hills, California. I recommend my 3-Month TOEFL Course for you based on that fact that you need to improve about 23 points total in your overall score.

      You will get a lot of pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice, so make sure, after you enroll, that you send sending me things to grade and comment on. It is a slow process, but I can help get you to 26 on speaking.

      Right now, I will send you a Pay Pal invoice for my 3-month TOEFL course.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  254. Hey my name is mahwish. I have taken toefl few times and for my degree i need required score in each section. However, I have always failed by one or two points in either reading or writing. I need 24 in writing. What do you suggest

  255. Hi, I have a question about the free week of the course.
    How can i join to the course without the payment? Because at the beggining of the page, it mentions about creating a paypal account and making the payment, but first i would like to try it before that.

    1. Jose,

      You cannot join my course with creating a PayPal subscription. After you subscribe, you will not be billed for the first week of using my course.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  256. Hi.
    I am really interested in attending your class. My TOEFL mark is 81. The problem is, In Iran, we don’t have access to the international card. Do you have any suggestion? I really need help

    1. Bahar,

      What TOEFL score do you need to get? Can you make a payment by credit card? Western Union?

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Hello Micheal, I also have the same problem because i’m from Iran too.
        We have no access to international paying system due to sanctions. 🙁
        I registered for TOEFL just by buying voucher. and that’s very sad that we cant use your 7-step system.

        1. Jaber,

          Can you pay by credit card or Western union? Do you know anyone from another country to can make the payment on your behalf?

          I am thinking about different ways that you might be able to join my course.

          Michael

    But, I do not know if my payment process go through or not.
    Moreover, how can I log into the program??
    please advice.
    thanks

    1. I just sent you your username and password information to your e-mail address.

  263. hello Michael I made log in to my course. thank you

  264. Dear Michael Buckhoff
    I am very interested in your learning method
    I want to present the Toefel IBT test to study my master’s degree in economics,
    But I also want to learn to speak English, which seems to me the most important thing.
    They recommended me their study method a lot.
    What steps should I follow?

    1. Good question! Tell me more about yourself. What is your current TOEFL score or practice test score (and subtotal scores!)? How high of a score do you need to get, including subtotals in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections? Having this information helps me to make the best recommendations.

  265. Hi Michael, My name is Sharon. I took the TOEFL exam for the first time last 3/10 I got 69. The passing is 89.
    R:16 L:14 S:19 W: 20 .I’m required to take the TOEFL exam to prepare me to take the Physical Therapy Licensure. I’m interested in your online course. The PT boards required R:22 L:21 S:24 W:22 total of 89.I’m really frustrated about getting a low score. My plan is to study in 3 month period and re take it again.

    1. Sharon,

      I feel your frustration about your score. Remember in your TOEFL journey that there will be bumps along the way. Gaining 20 more points is 3 months is reasonable, and, to help you do that, I recommend my 3-Month TOEFL Course: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/90-Day-7-Step-Study-Guide-1.pdf

      In fact, I will make it easy for you to join this course, so I will send you a Pay Pal invoice. You can join my course whenever you are ready to continue your TOEFL prep studies.

      Thanks,

      Michael

    Thanks,

    1. VK,

      I just emailed you your password and username information. Since you are trying my course for free for one week, I recommend that you complete at least one speaking and one writing practice test so you can see what type of feedback I provide.

      Tell me more about yourself, especially in terms of how long you think you need to study, and I will recommend a course plan suited to you.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  270. Hi ! Michael Buckhoff,

    What is the alternate option for payment for your course rather than paypal ? Is it possible to give payment through Visa card from Bangladesh? Your kind help is highly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    1. Ray,

      Yes, you can also choose credit card options, but you must choose one of these options at checkout: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/about/shop/

      Thanks,

      Michael

  271. Hi Michael,

    I have created an account on this website and paid for 1 month membership but I am yet to receive any email from the website. Could you please help me with the next steps I should follow to begin my practice.

    Thanks

    1. From what I can tell, you have reversed your payment and no longer want to use my course, right? Let me know if you change you mind.

      1. Hi Michael,

        Thanks for your response. Actually I tried to make the payment twice. In first time, the payment had been reversed by the bank due to rejection by credit card for some reason; but in second time, it was successfully done.

        This probably was the reason for this confusion. I have shared a screenshot of the same to your email. Could you please verify and share the next steps.

        Regards,
        Mani

  272. HI MIcheal
    my payment is done, but I can not access to materials, could you help me how to join online material?

    1. Did you get access to your course. I emailed you your username and password.

  273. Hi Michael,
    i’m Adnane, so i want to imrove my english and take to toefl exam, which course is better for me knowing that i have an intermediate english level. Thanks
    Sincerely
    Adnane

    1. i forgot to tell you that i have to get at least 90 in the toefl exam. Thanks

    2. Adnane,

      If you have not taken the TOEFL exam, I recommend that you take a full-length four hour practice test so I can find out exactly what your academic level is. My partner web site offers realistic TOEFL practice tests that will give you an accurate overall score and subtotal scores in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections.

      Once you get your results from the practice test, then I can recommend a specific plan that will help you reach your score of 90+.

      You can take one of the practice tests by going here: http://scorenexus.com?afmc=1f (Do not take the free version offered there because it is not a comprehensive TOEFL practice test.)

      Thanks,

      Michael
