Hi Fran,

... to achieve 80 % to 85 % on the TOEFL iBT or IELTS.
I would suggest 600 hours of contact with the language and a couple of months preparation doing sample tests, but I would like to hear from you guys your input on this question.

You are probably right.
However, I wouldn't be so objective and precise when evaluating a human ability so complex, changeable and difficult to measure. Consider just the differences in learning pace that we can observe with different learners. In our school I interview students that sign up for classes who have studied English for years and are at a pre-intermediate level or worse. At the same time I interview a lot of young people that never sat in a classroom to "study" English, but are on upper intermediate or pre-advanced levels.
