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!

The last report was my IELTS trial exam report. Last year I took IELTS mock test at World Language Center. To be honest, my writing skills was not good when I was an exam. I took only 5.5 from writing. Even so, my overall score was 6.5. Although, my writing skills is not good,listening and reading skills not so bad. And now, I do improve my writing skills everyday. I believe, on August I will take 7.0 score from IELTS exam at British Council.

Hi.. But you should study at home, watching on line classes on youtube, TV series, listening music, playing games, doing exercise on app. We can't depend to a teacher.. if you really want to learn, you can do it alone. Believe in you. Good Look!

i sat my final exam three weeks ago at the end of the last month. the exam consisted (listen ,reading,vocabulary,grammer ,pronunciation and writing. and i got my result this week. i was in A ,i got wrong 18 marks . i was needed 190 and i gained 172. the best part of my exam was pronunciation 20/20 and the second one was speaking 14/15 and the third one was grammer 38/40. as you can see from marks i was A in all three these. But there were skills that i was very poor at them such as reading 10/15 ,listen 8/10,vocabulary 37/40 and writing 45/50. my poorest part was reading I became very complicated it was talking How our body language reveal out our emotion withou telling ,the concept was hard and there were difficult words that i had not seen before .

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.

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.

I still have difficulties on listening but I decided to follow my learning and practicing day by day and step by step intel I will held my purpose ( use easily English in my daily life.

Hello Wahiba

It's great to hear that you are so determined to improve your English. I just wanted to make sure that you had seen our Listening skills section. There are a lot of pages there that could be helpful for that. There are also several sections in our General English section that might also be useful for you.

Good luck!

All the best

I gave the IELTS exam in 2010. My average mark was 6.5 from 9. I thought I would score a bit in listening, but I get 5 in reading because it was very difficult.

Hello afnan abdullah There's some good advice on how to use our site to improve your speaking on our Frequently asked questions (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/frequently-asked-questions) page. I would also recommend the pages in our Speaking (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/speaking) and Listening (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/listening) skills sections. Even if you can't speak with another person in English, you can learn a lot by trying to speak to yourself in English during the day and practising useful phrases that you hear in our videos or audio recordings. I hope this helps you! All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team

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 (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/frequently-asked-questions) page. I'd also encourage you to consider signing up for one of our free MOOCs (https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/moocs) the next time one that interests you is offered. There is one on Shakespeare just starting today, for example. Good luck! All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
