If Buckhoff can get these answers to this information, he will be able to offer TOEFL help in two important ways:

  1. He will tell you how long it will take to reach your target score and subtotal scores.
  2. You will get a personalized learning path. This path will give you TOEFL practice daily for the recommended period of time.

If you have not taken the TOEFL exam, Buckhoff will recommend that you take a full-length four hour practice test. It is important that your speaking and writing tasks are accurately scored by TOEFL specialists. As a result, Buckhoff will recommend a web site that offers realistic, accurate full-length practice tests.

TOEFL Help: Vocabulary Practice

Once enrolled in one of Buckhoff’s TOEFL course, you will complete a vocabulary e-book plus practice tests.  At the completion of this section, you will learn 1,700 TOEFL words so that you can read, listen, speak, and write more easily.

TOEFL Help: Pronunciation Practice

The TOEFL help you get in this section is accent reduction.  You will complete a pre-test so your TOEFL speaking mentor can diagnose problems that you are having with vowel and consonant sounds.  In addition, you will complete another pronunciation pre-test. This pre-test focuses on syllable division and grammatical word endings. Furthermore, this pre-test will determine whether or not you have problems with word stress, sentence rhythm, and intonation. Finally, completing this pre-test will help you understanding what problems you are having with thought groups and blending.   After studying the recommended lessons to help you speak more clearly, you will complete a post-test so you can get feedback one more time with your pronunciation

TOEFL Help: Grammar Practice

To support your speaking and writing abilities, you will also get grammar instruction after joining one of Buckhoff’s Online TOEFL Courses.  You will take a diagnostic grammar pre-test to find what problems you are having. Then you will study specific grammar lessons to address those weak points.  Lastly, you will complete a grammar post-test to see if you have any lingering grammar issues.

TOEFL Help: Listening Practice

TOEFL help in the way of 40 listening practice tests will help you to improve your listening. You will also learn all the listening question types and strategies for answering them. In addition, you will learn how to take notes and how to make the best use of your notes during the TOEFL exam. All in all, you will get helpful tips on how to improve your listening comprehension.

TOEFL Help: Reading Practice

Arguable the most valuable TOEFL help that you will get is reading help.  The reading section consists of 70 speed reading practice tests. These practice tests will help you improve your reading speed from 100 to 350 words per minute. The benefits of reading at 350 words per minute with 60-80% comprehension are absolutely priceless:

Finish TOEFL reading passages much faster so you have more time to spend answering the questions.

Have better comprehension of what you read while reading academic texts much faster.

Read your college-level assignments 20-60% faster.

In addition, other reading lessons will help you to familiarize yourself with the TOEFL reading question types and the strategies for answering them.  Finally, you will also learn some note-taking strategies so that you can understand and get in note form the organization of TOEFL style reading passages.

TOEFL Help: Writing Practice

You will also get TOEFL help with your writing. And it is not just by watching a lot of videos explaining strategies for answering the independent and integrated writing tasks.  You will be able to complete up to 40 independent and 43 integrated writing practice tests. Each practice test you complete is carefully read and evaluated by a TOEFL writing specialist. The specialist will score your writing practice tests. Then the specialist will e-mail you your writing score along with some brief comments explaining why you got the score you did. Unlike Magoosh and many other TOEFL prep web sites, you (the enrolled user) can complete a writing practice test every 24 hours. Students who purchase the premium writing course will get 60-minute video correction and diagnostic feedback on ONE independent and ONE integrated writing practice test.

TOEFL Help: Speaking Practice

The most popular part of Buckhoff’s TOEFL materials, the speaking course offers TOEFL help in the form of 300+ independent paired-choice and free choice tasks. Further, you can also complete 20 integrated speaking practice tests. In fact, while you are a student, this course will allow you to submit practice tests from anywhere on the Internet such as TOEFL Practice Online (TPO).  In all cases, you will be able to submit speaking practice tests every 24 hours while you are enrolled. After each practice test, a specialist will download your e-mail audio and evaluate it. The specialist will provide audio or video comments so you can understand why you received the score you did.
