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!

What was your last report like? What areas do you need to improve?
I have been learning English for 1years and my last report was not too good. my speaking is not good. I need to improve this. I've got good marks in listening, watching, and writing but still I do not speak better in English so it is very important to practice it regularly

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

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 :)

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.

Unfortunately, I didn't make any report, generally, so I want to focus in this lesson to make a report like that or other, and I want to improve a writing, listening and speaking skills to help me learning the language as much as possible.

Submitted by Asni on Thu, 29/10/2020 - 21:16

The last time I was asked to perform a report was two years ago. I think it is a bit tricky to write a concise report. There are lots of things to take into account; style, structure, simplicity....I'm a bit confused about the second part of the question... Anyway, if it is about the areas I need to improve in English then my answer will be listening, it is my big weakness. I've been watching TV shows and listening to podcasts lately, I noticed a slight improvement but I still need more practice. I think it will take me a while before a feel comfortable listening and understanding what a native speaker says.

Submitted by Ruby on Sat, 17/10/2020 - 08:34

No one gave me any report about English a long time, but in my opinion I have to improve my vocabulary and of course regularity of my lessons
