Missing a class

Listen to a student explain why she can't come to class to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.

Ofcourse, I have lot of home work to do .I like to do some tasks which are creative where I need to do a lot of mental exercise

I had had classes English last year. actually I was if I had a doctor's appointment I was telling my teacher.I remember "one day" I was so tired because I did hiking in the before the day, I could not attend in next day but after that, I give my teacher doctor's certificate .

I don’t have any studies assignments. I finished my studies last year and the only commitment that I have now is to improve my English skills. Due to COVID, I can't attend any English classes in a private school, so I'm trying to learn on my own. I setting myself homework, every day to listen to stories, select unknown words, write essays, and to practice speaking part. That’s means I have a lot of homework to do every day with a regular schedule. I'm putting too much effort to be fluent in English, and this is my aim for the next year.

When I was at college my professors gave too many homework assignments and the funniest was related with maths and physic.

All my wish today, apart from being a teacher is to master Perfect English as my mother tongue that's why I take seriously any training going in the direction of improving myself and British council offers me the opportunity to do it, I really appreciate these learning sites.

When I was a student, I used to like doing homework. Now as a teacher I give homework to my students. Sometimes my students complain because they think that they have a lot to do. In case I realise that they are too busy what I do is to give them more time to do their homework. I think that it is very important for students to have to do homework.

Thank to thé britishcouncil for this kind of support .we guinean english teachers are happy and Grateful about the job you are doing for us

Currently, I have an online English course. It covers speaking, listening, reading, and writing practice through a variety of general interest topics. So I have to spend a lot of time reviewing my grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. This course has a lot of online homework assignments and I need to finish it by weekly deadline.

When I was studenthood, I sometimes had homework assignments to do. Among them, I was interested in doing mathematics assignments. I think I love solving problems and working on solutions.
