Peter is a good and consistent student. He participates and cooperates in class. He doesn’t need much guidance from his teacher when he is answering the activities that the teacher prepared for him. However, there's one thing that you could notice about him, he isn't enthusiastic and lively. He seems tired sometimes. So the teacher needs to introduce free talking topics that may catch his attention. Nevertheless, Peter is a polite and diligent student.
Peter's reading skill can be considered as Approaching Proficiency. This is because he can read fast in proper pace and tone. But sometimes the teacher needs to correct the pronunciation of some words. After correcting him, he can easily say the word again properly.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Peter's speaking skill can be considered as Approaching Proficiency. This is because he expresses himself adequately when speaking. Despite that, he must start to study a little more of word pronunciation. Other than that, he's really good. He uses well- constructed sentences. He is informative and he often asks questions related to the topic.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND COMMENTS:
The teacher must encourage him to practice more in reading during his free time to broaden his English vocabulary. To catch his interest, teacher should use more ESL interactive worksheets and games.
The teacher must continue introducing free talking topics and role plays to enhance the student’s speaking skill. In addition, idiomatic expressions will also be introduced to improve his English communication skill.
