Mickey's attitude towards learning English language is impressing. He is very active and cooperative during the class. He doesn’t need much guidance from his teacher when he is answering the activities from the workbook. He's actually a fast-learner and has an in-depth knowledge of many grammatical rules and constructions.
Mickey's reading skill can be considered as Approaching Proficiency. This is because the student reads English text with appropriate punctuation and pronunciation without any difficulty but there are still some words and phrases which are unfamiliar to the student. The student has a tendency to mumble whenever he doesn’t know how to read a particular word, phrase or sentence.
Mickey’s comprehension skill can be considered as Above Approaching Proficiency. This is because for the past month of January, the student is capable of understanding and comprehending reading material independently. Whenever the teacher asks some questions about the lesson, he can answer quickly. The teacher doesn't need to repeat some instructions and questions before he can answer it. This is a sign that the student has a very good English comprehension skill.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Mickey’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered as Approaching Proficiency. This is because he can easily say what he wants to say without much trouble. The student tries to converse only in English whenever possible with teachers fluently. The student is capable of good conversational skills in English along with good interaction and proper eye contact while speaking. However, he needs to broaden his vocabulary to enable him to cope in a greater variety of contexts.
Mickey is highly motivated and commendable student. He's really making an effort in building his vocabulary. Daily reading practice will help him enhance his vocabulary and language development.
His teacher will still be introducing more conversational English and idiomatic expressions to improve his speaking skill and broaden his vocabulary.
