At first, Da Yeon was a bit shy to speak but as we go along the lesson, she becomes more participative and willing to speak. She exhibited a polite attitude in following the teacher’s instructions.She is under the developing stage. She can easily distinguish different vocabulary words depicted in the pictures during class. Likewise, Da Yeon showed great enthusiasm towards games and videos as she participated well on those supplementary activities. The teacher is looking forward that she will maintain this pleasant attitude in class.
Da Yeon can easily read some simple and conversational words and phrases. It means that her reading capabilities may be considered in the developing level. She was also able to imitate the intonation of the teacher once she read aloud the sentences in the book. However, Da Yeon has to practice reading in a faster pace and she also has to read more books to widen her vocabulary.
Da Yeon’s comprehension skills can be considered in the Developing level as well. She was able to participate in simple conversations with teacher like when she was being asked how her day was and what were some famous foods in Korea. However, Da Yeon needed a translator to understand some new and difficult words. Thus, it will be very helpful for Da Yeon’s to enrich her vocabulary through introducing more words and examples as well as visual representation of these words for her to completely understand. A clear discussion by the teacher is also recommended when explaining new ideas to Da Yeon.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION: Developing. She has improved compared with our very first class, she listens very well when she is being corrected and imitate the intonation and accent of the teacher. I want her to use more words to complete his sentences.
RECOMMENDATIONS/COMMENTS: The teacher advises her to use more words to complete her sentences and be more exposed to English videos and enriching activities. She may also practice reading storybooks with pictures for better comprehension of the story.
FUTURE GOALS: I am planning to give her more interactive activities especially answering questions with pictures to test more her understandings ad vocabulary. Also, the teacher plans to expose her to more English educational videos and more fun games as to keep her interested in the class.
