Dong Keon has a shy personality but willing to engage in small talks with the teacher. His responses are most of the time limited to Yes and No at this point because is a young beginner. Despite challenges in different areas, he remains positive during class and does his best to follow directions and understand the lessons. He may look tired sometimes because there are days when he goes directly to English class right after he arrives home from the academy, but this does not stop him from trying his best, always, during discussions.
Dong Keon is at the Beginning level in terms of reading. He can read simple and short words but needs a lot of guidance. The teacher would repeat the chants and talking parts in the lesson material several times for him to follow. It may take some time but with continuous practice, exposure to reading materials and his positive attitude in class, he can be better in this area soon.
Both listening and reading comprehension are at the Beginning stage. Though he listens actively in class, it takes time for him to understand the information so repetitions are necessary for him to remember the lessons and instructions better. Since reading is quite a big challenge for now, reading comprehension also follows. But once he improves his reading skills and vocabulary, he will better understand the things he reads.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Dong Keon's speaking and pronunciation skills are at the Beginning phase. He is a young beginner and it is very understandable that his vocabulary is still growing so it is a challenge to speak and pronounce words correctly at this point. Once he understands word meanings better, the righ pronunciation will follow. When vocabulary and pronunciation are better, he can speak more confidently with others.
It is recommended that Dong Keon watch American shows for kids such as cartoons, animations and Disney movies. This is a good way to be introduced to more English words and phrases and basic conversations. He can also get himself more familiar to the American accent and way of speaking with others.
The teacher will do small talks/conversations with Dong Keon so he can be prepared as well to communicate with others. Repetitions of the past lessons will also be done to check his understanding and make sure he retains the information for a long time.
