Jae Min was an enthusiastic student. He greeted the teacher warmly at the start of the lesson. He was able to freely share his thoughts about his favorite sports which is soccer. However, he had some minimal lapses in terms of pronouncing some difficult words. Generally, Jae Min’s attitude in the class was pleasant.
Jae Min’s comprehension skills can be classified under the Approaching Proficiency. He was able to converse with the teacher and answer some simple questions. He also read various words in the book according to the sequence and shared some ideas about them.
Jae Min was able to read at an average pace. He was able to read some conversational words. However, there are still some words that Jae Min was unfamiliar with. Jae Min needs to practice applying the intonation on the sentences. The good thing about Jae Min is that he can easily follow the instructions given by the teacher in a timely manner.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Jae Min tend to speak carefully both in explaining his ideas and reading. However, Jae Min still need to practice blending words in sentences for her to sound more fluent. To sum it up, Jae Min’s speaking and pronunciation skills may be classified in the Approaching Proficiency level. He can improve this by listening to some educational English videos online.
Jae Min is an ideal student. He just needs to be more exposed to more reading materials as well as English videos. It is also recommended for Jae Min to list down some new words he has learned in class and practice using those words in making his own sentences and daily conversations.
FUTURE GOALS: I am planning to give Jae Min more interactive activities especially in terms of answering the questions with pictures to test more his understandings and vocabulary. Also, the teacher plans to expose him to more English educational videos and fun games as to keep him interested in the class.
