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!

Because of culture and many others problems hard to practice speaking part we need to have silent area and safe to talk with someone but i think internet is great resources to practice with someone .

I tried to English exam last year and I got 60% score.My goal is to get 70〜80%score at the exam,so I keep practicing listening and reading every day.I feel I should memorize a bunch of vocabularies little by little.

My last report was "English level test" online on British Council site. )) What do I need to improve? Never had such an easy question. I need to improve all four skills. I have good vocabulary and quite good at grammar. I even read English books in the original. But still need to improve my reading skill. My writing skill is less well than reading. I'm trying to write in English as often as possible. Even here, on your site, I do my best to write comments 500 signs minimum but I know it's not enough. Listening and Speaking are my weakness. I'm still not confident when I have to talk to somebody or listening to someone. I definitely need more practice.

I think my last report was good. I answered the questions correctly, but I didn't know the meaning of some words. I need to increase my vocabulary. In addition, another area I should improve is listening. Every time I take an English exam or test, I have poor grades in the listening area. I'll do my best to get used to listening more to improve my grades.

I've got 87 on my final exam in English C1 level and I've reached my advance level certificate. Especially I need to improve my speaking skill and vocabulary. Due not to find a speaking partner, my speaking skill has been decreasing. Also, I struggle with memorizing new words. Even though I type down new words to my notebook and make sentences with them, I realize that I forget them easily.

Hello. My last report was bad, because I made some mistakes. Also,I'm not good at listening, so I'm watching overseas movies to improve my listening skill. The movie I'm watching is "clueless". Do you know? I love it. I learn English while enjoying by using my favorite movies. However what important is I watch movies a number of time. Then, I keep watching same movies until I can watch it without subtitling. Also, It is very important to memorize many vocabularies and writing English sentence like it. I wanna talk with many foreigner so I study hard English. Also, I wanna talk and meet with overseas students to enjoying talk and improve my English.
