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 good. I answered the questions correctly, but I didn't know the meaning of some words. I need to increase my vocabulary. In addition, another area I should improve is listening. Every time I take an English exam or test, I have poor grades in the listening area. I'll do my best to get used to listening more to improve my grades.

I've got 87 on my final exam in English C1 level and I've reached my advance level certificate. Especially I need to improve my speaking skill and vocabulary. Due not to find a speaking partner, my speaking skill has been decreasing. Also, I struggle with memorizing new words. Even though I type down new words to my notebook and make sentences with them, I realize that I forget them easily.

Hello. My last report was bad, because I made some mistakes. Also,I'm not good at listening, so I'm watching overseas movies to improve my listening skill. The movie I'm watching is "clueless". Do you know? I love it. I learn English while enjoying by using my favorite movies. However what important is I watch movies a number of time. Then, I keep watching same movies until I can watch it without subtitling. Also, It is very important to memorize many vocabularies and writing English sentence like it. I wanna talk with many foreigner so I study hard English. Also, I wanna talk and meet with overseas students to enjoying talk and improve my English.

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.
