Online TOEFL Course: Fernando’s TOEFL score is not improving!


Life does not always go as planned, and, when it comes to TOEFL preparation, your improvements might not come in a timely manner.

Fernando, one of my Online TOEFL Course students, has been studying for about three hours daily for the last two months. He has been going through the lessons in my course, and he has a regular routine of reading every day for about 30 to 40 minutes.  He took the TOEFL exam in May and scored 83, and then two months later he re-took the exam and scored 78, 5 points lower than his previous score.

Obviously, Fernando is frustrated about this new revelation, so he e-mailed me to get some advice on how he can make significant improvements in his academic English language proficiency.

Here are my comments to him:
