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!

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 .

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 a very well. I got a good marks. But i should improve my speaking and writing skills. Also my vocabulary not so good. So i starded writing and speaking more. I think after
I think according to my plans In 2 months everything will be fine for me.

I think my last report was not good. I need to improve in all areas, especially in my speaking.

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.

My last report was excellent but I had some difficulties in one question which taught me that I have to improve my predicting.
