Comments

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!

As I remembered, It was one month ago and it was terrible mark because I fell at reading and listening skills. My tutor suggested me to practice more on these area by British council website. and thanks to yours because of your very good resource.

My last report was not great but not but. Overall was good and the subjects which I was worried about were excellent. However, I got average scores in some subjects which I didn't care. From thI results, I can find I can do when I work hard. So, I should study all of subjects, not only weak one but also strong one. To do so, I think I can take amazing GPA score.

What was your last report like? What areas do you need to improve? I haven't taken in official English test yet, but I think I have a problem in speaking and writing. I have no one to speak English to, so it's difficult to improve my speaking skill. And in writing, I don't now how to arrange the word to be a good sentence in English. Therefore, I have to practice more to improve my English and one of my effort is practicing with this site.

Actually, I need to improve for 4 areas leaning English like speaking, reading, writing and listening. But the most area that I need to improve is speaking skills. I'm very bad in speaking english, Its hard for me to say what in my mind. But sometimes i understand what people say, I understand what i read.

Hello. I need to improve all my skills. I know to speak a little bit, but I have to improve more. I need to practice listening and speaking more, because these are the most that I have to use at work. For the moment I record on the phone than I listen what I said. I think is a good exercise to see where I have problems.
