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 have discussed my tutor last week. According to him, I might need to improve my writing skills. Moreover, I need to improve my pronunciation in the speaking as well. When i speak too fast, he said it is very difficult to understand. Reading and Listening are not a great deal for me. Anyway, I need to practice more to reach the next level.

i had a problem like yours but with more practice i exceeded the problem now i can talk fast without pronunciation mistakes

I think my writing skills need improvement because I focus just in reading and speaking

As far as I can tell you that when you insist to learn on something and you study as much as you can, you will start making progress in time. Believe me or not, I experienced this situation on my body shape and I believe that I will also experince it on my English skills. Keep studying. I believe in my willpower. Lastly, explain myself on writing is keep my mind clarify. See you :)

I'm not so good at speaking because I'm a little shy. In fact, I'm trying to improve my reading and writing, because I'm studying to an exam which requires these two habilities.

I think I need to improve my communication skills in English because I find it hard to express my ideas in english when I talk to somebody so with practice and time I will be good at talking in English, I'm sure.

Hi, I think I need to improve in all the areas, specially in listening, speaking and the vocabulary. One thing that I’ve been doing recently, is trying to read books in English, following an advice: read a book according to my English level, and I feel this strategy are successful. Obviously, I need more help.

I think I'm too weak in four skills. I'm working for it. I'm doing a lot of practice about this four skills.
But I'm too weak in writing skills. Because if your writing skills is good then you find yourself to good for all.
