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!

Hello dear team, first of all, I really appreciate you I am improving English more and more by this site I recommended you to do more less.

I have difficult with the listening skills

Hello casssioesousa,

Have you tried our Listening and Video zone sections? I'd recommend having a look if not.

All the best,


The LearnEnglish Team

I was bad at grammar. I think I have to work more on vocabulary.

My latest report was before quarantine. In all 4 skills, I must enchance my writing skill.

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 very bad and I’m feeling sorry about that.
Whatever I was working hard for the exams and the results was not good at the list I do What it needs from me what it needs from 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.
