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!

Hi everybody, I should improve all skills. Sir. Could you recommend for me please? What do you think ? Which one should I start? Thanks for everyting already now. have a good night.
Hello cuneyt It's very difficult for us to give you good personalised advice without knowing you, but in general it's a good idea to work on all the skills at the same time. This doesn't mean that you should work on all the skills every time you study, but rather that it's better not to neglect any of them for too long. There are some detailed suggestions on how to use our site to improve different areas of your English on our Frequently asked questions ( page. I'd also encourage you to consider signing up for one of our free MOOCs ( the next time one that interests you is offered. There is one on Shakespeare just starting today, for example. Good luck!
