Seo Bin is very shy. She seldom speaks in class so the teacher has to ask her questions to get her talking. She still looks uncomfortable in class and easily gets nervous and intimidated with new information. She also lacks belief in herself. It seems that she knows how to answer some questions sometimes but is afraid to commit mistakes. She also loses focus sometimes. The teacher has observed that she sometimes stares at the computer monitor so her attention has to be called many times during the class.
Reading is still quite a struggle for Seo Bin. Because of this, her confidence in doing this skill is very much affected. She speaks in a very low voice sometimes, almost inaudible. The speed is also slow and the teacher has to make her repeat after her many so she can get the reading right. Because of these observations, her competency in this area is still to be considered Beginning Level.
Listening comprehension is also at the Beginning Level because Seo Bin's vocabulary foundation is still being worked on, resulting to her not being able to understand many questions and sentences. She tries her best to listen actively but because of word knowledge limitations, this area just really falls a little short. As for reading comprehension, she sometimes catches up but there are more times when she seems confused with the information.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Seo Bin's speaking and pronunciation are also at the Beginning stage. Because of her challenges in vocabulary knowledge, she would not be able to manage actual English conversations yet. She may not be able to express her thoughts and feelings. Since reading is still a big challenge for her, correct pronunciation of many words does not happen too sometimes.
It is recommended that she concentrates more in class and take the lessons seriously. The teacher appreciates her hard work but she also believes that there is still a big room for improvement in terms of concentration in class and willingness to learn. Try to review the previous lessons in her free time so she would not forget the new information that were earlier introduced in classes.
The teacher will continue to monitor Seo Bin's skill development more closely. The first things that need urgent attention are her focus in class and willingness to learn. With these two present, the skills can be development faster and more easily.
