Chitra joined an Online TOEFL Course called “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.” Since making the decision to get a PhD Degree in Biology at an American University, Chitra knew that she would have to get a high TOEFL score, but even she was surprised to find out that she would have to score higher than 100 in order to pursue her doctoral studies.
One reason Chitra decided to join “The 7-Step System” Online TOEFL Course is that it offers a place online where she can post her pronunciation, independent speaking, and integrated speaking responses. Toward this aim, founder, owner, and materials writer Michael Buckhoff uses a Voxopop Discussion Group for his Online TOEFL Course. “The 7-Step System” Voxopop Discussion Group allows Chitra to post her pronunciation pre-tests and post-test and allows her to post responses to more than 330 independent and integrated speaking tasks. Then each time, a TOEFL iBT speaking specialist listens to, evaluates, and scores her responses, even giving her 2-5 minutes of audio feedback helping her understand any possible problems she might be having with delivery, language use, and topic development. Then based on specific problems that she might be having, her TOEFL iBT speaking mentor will recommend specific lessons to help improve her overall speaking and pronunciation fluency.
Another reason Chitra joined the Online TOEFL Course called “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT” is that she can post independent and integrated writing practice tests and also have those responses evaluated by a TOEFL iBT writing specialist. In all, there are 40 independent writing practice tests that Chitra can complete. Upon completion of a writing practice test, a TOEFL iBT writing specialist will read, evaluate, and score her essay and provide written feedback so that she can understand problems with the organization, development of ideas, sentence structure, grammar, word choice, and mechanics. In addition, each of the 40 independent writing practice tests has a model essay that Chitra can read to help her understand how to write an essay which will score 5.0/5.0 or 30/30 pts. And since she needs to score at least 24/30 pts on the writing section, being able to read the model is helpful to her. In addition, Chitra also has the opportunity to complete 10 integrated writing practice tests and also have them scored by an iBT writing specialist who will also help her to better organize and develop a high-scoring response to this type of writing task. And, check this out! There are an additional 30 integrated practice tests that will be added to this Online TOEFL Course next month.
Therefore, Chitra is hard at work right now improving both her speaking and writing proficiencies, and, in addition to her useful speaking and writing lessons, her Online TOEFL Course has vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, and reading lessons, all of which are designed to help her improve her academic English proficiencies and her TOEFL score. So, when Chitra begins her doctoral studies in Biology, she will have the advanced English proficiency that will help her to complete her studies.
