Dong Hyeuk may seem relaxed and cool during the class but he takes lessons seriously. It is very evident that he takes good care of his English studies. He is confident and never showed any signs of nervousness even when encountering challenges in the lesson.
Dong Hyeuk's reading ability is at the Approaching Proficiency. Though there are some pronunciation challenges, he still can read words and phrases fast with a little guidance from the teacher. He sometimes may require more time to read but this only shows how particular he can get when it comes to reading. It may be difficult but he does his best consistently in terms of reading.
Dong Hyeuk's comprehension skills is already at Approaching Proficiency phase. There are times when the teacher would have to repeat some instructions and important lesson points but he makes sure to let the teacher know that he understands. After the teacher gives the necessary corrections, he can realize at once where he fell short and applies the correction/feedback right away.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Dong Hyeuk's speaking and pronunciation skills are at this point at Approaching Proficiency level. He can engage in small talks with the teacher during class. He can also pronounce most words encountered in the lesson correctly. He still needs guidance in pronunciation because there are certain sounds that he finds challenging such as L and R.
It is recommended for Dong Hyeuk to practice reading short stories, articles, words and phrases out loud and record his voice using his cellphone. The teacher can listen to it during the class. This way, the pronunciation and reading areas can be improved even outside classes.
The teacher will provide more small talks during the class so Dong Hyeuk will have a chance to apply his learning in actual conversations. He has the potential to be so much better in English communication especially now that he already has a quite good foundation on how to do it. He just needs refinement on certain areas such as pronunciation,, reading , vocabulary and sentence structure.
