Lucy is very respectful and appreciative in all classes. She is consistently very nice and shows constant willingness to learn but she is also receptive of corrections and feedback. She may not smile a lot because of her shy personality but it has also been observed that she is slowly opening up during the class and starting to communicate more with the teacher. She has been very concentrated in discussions since day one and makes sure she responds to all the teacher's questions relevantly and timely.
Lucy's reading skill is observed as Proficient. She can practically read most words encountered in the classes with no difficulty though a little bit of guidance may be necessary for unfamiliar, longer words. It is not only the pronunciation part where she does well but also in the reading comprehension because she can practically understand what she reads and can communicate it as well to the teacher.
Lucy's comprehension skill at this point is Above Approaching Proficiency. She listens actively all the time and does not have any difficulty understanding the teacher's instructions. If she gets confused, she also has the ability and initiative to clarify it with the teacher. Both listening and comprehension skills are great and with the level she is at now, she will become so much better in these areas in a short period of time.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Lucy's speaking and pronunciation skills are at this point at Approaching Proficiency level. The way she pronounces words is really clear and the accent is also becoming more neutral. Because of these, she can be easily understood even by native English speakers. She can also express herself quite well. Though she uses simple sentences and basic sentence structures, she can communicate her thoughts and feelings clearly and confidently.
The teacher encourages Lucy to practice reading short stories and unfamiliar words in a loud voice when she is free. She can record her voice and make the teacher listen to it during class. This way, the teacher can guide her and give corrections if necessary. It will also help if she will watch more American movies and TV programs to get herself more familiar to the accent and the way Americans speak with each other in conversations.
The teacher will also do free conversation practices with her in the coming days so she will be more confident to speak in actual conversations.
