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 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

My last report was good i have got 70 and was in Turkish language it was before 10 months, highest skill was speaking i spook very well in the exam and my lowest skill was listening the subject was hard a bit. All my skills aren't good enough-at least not as i want-but the most 2 skills i have to improve are listening and reading.

My last report was long time ago. When a I was at University. I should improve my speaking skill and listening still. It very difficult for me. In my countrie a little people speak english language, so I don't have any person practice with me, . However, internet is a good resource for practice by myself. I definitely need more practice, all time, all days.
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 .

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.
