Ga Yeon is an energetic student. She is also very participative and cooperative in class. I admire her for being a hard-working student and violinist. She is proactive in answering the practice exercise from the book. Also, the teacher gives her minimal correction because she can answer most of the questions correctly.
Ga Yeon’s reading skill can be considered as Above Approaching Proficiency. She reads well with proper intonation and pronunciation of most words. Sometimes, she asks the teacher about some unfamiliar words. The student has a tendency to stutter whenever she’s unfamiliar with a word.
Ga Yeon’s comprehension skill can be considered as Above Approaching Proficiency. The teacher is glad that the student is very expressive in class. The student can also immediately understand the main idea of the passage that she has read and he can easily answer questions about the lesson.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Ga Yeon’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered as Developing. The most impressive thing about Ga Yeon’s oral skills is that she can easily copy the teacher’s pronunciation of words and sentences with some repetition. However, when she says difficult words, accent becomes evident sometimes. That is why it will be very helpful if Ga Yeon will be exposed to more English materials such as educational videos with subtitle and clear pronunciation of words.
The teacher encourages her to practice reading new and unfamiliar words during her free time. She can also take note of those words and then ask her teacher during class time how to properly pronounce them.
The teacher plans to introduce more conversational English expressions during class to enhance the student’s speaking skill. The teacher will also utilize more ESL interactive materials to practice her skills.
