She was able to understand through pictures and simple examples and uses of the words into sentences. She is a smart girl so it is no surprise that she was able to grasp what the teacher had been trying to tell her. To further improve her comprehension, more visual examples and illustrations will be done to make sure that Rosa understands the statements well. She should also be exposed to more English reading materials aside from the books that we are using such as story books with pictures.

Because of this, Rosa’s reading skills may be considered to be in the mid-developing level. To advance in higher levels, Rosa must be exposed to longer reading materials. She must also be given a book in the class with story lines and dialogues as to check how well she reads and understands sentences in stories. With a little practice, Rosa will surely be good in reading English texts.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Rosa’s speaking and pronunciation may be considered to be in the developing level as well. Although her comprehension may be considered to be in a higher level of the developing category, her speaking skills is one area that should be focused on. Due to her limited vocabulary, Rosa had difficulty finding words in expressing what she wanted to say. The good thing about her is, she exerted effort and tried her best communicate with the teacher. To help Rosa improve her speaking and pronunciation skills. She is advised to have a list of vocabulary words she learned every day. She is also encouraged to use those words in the class. Short video clips with subtitles and dialogues are also helpful in enhancing Rosa’s interest in speaking English.
Rosa is one of the students who always bring light to the atmosphere with her jolly personality and charm. She is fun to teach and is very respectful. She never showed any sign of disinterest in the class. She listened attentively and participated well in the discussion that is why the teacher is very positive that she will be a great English speaker one day. To be able to sustain Rosa’s learning in the class. It is recommended that her learning won’t stop in the online class. She should also be exposed to English words and sentences even at home. Simple words with pictures in flashcards will be of great help to help Rosa remember words and their spelling. She may also be allowed to watch English educational videos and read more English stories that she will surely enjoy.
In the coming meetings, Rosa will be more exposed to conversational English. More questions will be asked which will encourage her to speak more and provide reasons, but still with the teacher’s guidance. She will also learn one word per day as our “WORD FOR THE DAY” where she was given examples and pictures as explanations of the meaning of the words. Comic strips and dialogues may also be used in the class to practice Rosa’s reading and proper pronunciation and intonation. Keep up the good work Rosa! I'm just here to help you!
