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!

I would appreciate to BC team for such a nice, simple, and to the point writing style. I always have problems writing small reports like this. The key problem is how you start and which area to discuss first and how to continue the rhythm so report users can understand and keep interested to read my report till the end.

Hello anwarrasool,

Simple and to-the-point writing takes practice. We're working on a new email-writing course that will be available in some months to our subscribers. Once it is available, I'm sure we will announce it on the homepage and in our newsletter, so please be sure to keep an eye on those spaces.

All the best,


The LearnEnglish Team

I think, in four skills we need to work and focus on reading, so it will case to develop vocabulary also with strong vocabulary we will never in struggle in speaking and also in listening part we will be great I think.

From four Skills, I think I'm less good in writing area. The speaking and listening parts are my strongest point I think. People used to praise when I got involved in the conversation. Also, I'm struggling to memorize the new words. And sometimes I make small grammar mistakes. But I'm working on them every day to make small progress, and this site is so helpful for me
