Well done, Javier, on all your hard work this term. You are always active in speaking activities, and this is great. I always enjoy reading your writing too; you have very good ideas. You can see from your marks that reading is not a problem for you.

Sometimes you still make small grammar mistakes, and I think you can improve your vocabulary. I recommend you review many of the language points we studied this term. There is extra language practice in your online workbook.

The area you need to work on the most is listening. I know this is difficult for you. I recommend more practice at home. Listen to English TV shows, podcasts and radio as much as possible. I can give you a list of things to listen to.

I've enjoyed working with you. Have a nice holiday, and good luck for next term!

I think my last report was not good. I am especially bad at listening, so I am trying to get listening skill by watching overseas TV shows. Getting good scores on all skills is not easy for me, but I'd like to achieve this goal.

I can hardly get a 100 percent score. We should put more effort into reviewing the matter at the end. And I need to learn more English words.

I think my last report was good. But I'm not good at speaking. My English vocabulary is inadequate, so when I have a conversation in English, silence continues. Therefore, I need to increase my English vocabulary. In addition to speaking, I feel that I am not so good at listening. I tend to have lower scores in listening than in writing and reading. I'll try to improve these two skills.

I think that my last report wasn't good. Because I don't have vocabulary and grammar and so on. Also, I can't good at making sentences. But I will go to abroad for about three years. By the time, I want to take communication with local foreigner. So I should do my home study at the same time as a university assignment. I want to make a habit of studying hard little by little every day for the future.

I think my last report was bad. Because,I don't even think of simple expressions, or I don't understand it, so I rely on translators. I also think the low vocabulary is a problem. So I thought I needed to study to improve my grammar and vocabulary. And personally, I want to improve my speaking ability. Even though I have the opportunity to talk to foreigners, I am not able to respond quickly and I am disappointed, so I would like to practice listening to various media in English.

I think my last report was not bad, but I don't have enough vocabulary to write a report. And I often make mistakes with English grammer. Recentry, I'm studying TOEIC and learn vocabulary. I want to improve my TOEIC score and to speak English like native speaker.

I think my last report is not good. It is because I used only simple and easy words. Maybe I am able to tell you what I want to say, but my English skills will not improve. English is a language, so it is necessary to use many times to learn vocabulary. But I used already recommended words. In additions I am not good at grammar. I used simple grammar. Vocabulary and grammar are important skills to write report. But I cannot use it well. So I think I have to study hard to write report. Especially vocabulary and grammar.

I think my last report was not good. I like English but I'm not good at it. My department is a foreign language department, so there are many people around me who are good at English. I feel inferior to other people. That's why I try to write as much as I can using what I have learned. But I don't know many words, so it's difficult to make perfect sentences. I want to increase my vocabulary. And I will do my best to be able to write long sentences. Also, I'm not good at listening, so I want to improve my skill.

Hello.everyone. I think the last report I submitted was really Terrible. I am not good at writing sentences and have no vocabulary.So I'm learning a lot about English right now.I will go to study abroad next year. For that reason. I have to study English deeply. now I'm studying TOEIC. In the coming. many foreign will come to Japan and I think English will be the most necessary. So it's very important to learn English before now. My first goal is to improve my English so that I can talk to many foreigners who came to Japan and tell them about Japan.
