It has been another wonderful year teaching Jimin. She has improved in all areas especially speaking in the last few months. She speaks confidently and she sounds almost like a native speaker. I encourage Jimin to take on every opportunity to speak English even at home. Keep up the great attitude in learning, Jimin!
READING AND COMPREHENSION
Jimin’s reading and comprehension skills are in Proficient level. When reading, Jimin is expressive but not over the top. She reads fluently with a good volume and intonation. She understands what she reads and she’s able to analyze the paragraphs well. To further improve her comprehension, I encourage her to practice re-telling a story. She may read a book before-hand and tell me about it in class. It’s one way of improving both her comprehension and sentence construction skills. Keep up the good work, Jimin!
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Jimin’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered as Proficient level. Jimin has continued to improve her speaking skills. She has become more fluent in conversation and the only thing that’s left is for her to be a better conversationalist. She should learn to ask questions and not just answer them. Asking questions can make the conversation better, and it can help her become more fluent in speaking, too.
Jimin’s grammatical skill is in Above Approaching Proficiency level. This month’s lesson was focused on people’s character. In the course of this lesson, Jimin learned to use the words “when + present tense” in describing habits or facts and “when + past tense” in describing things that happened in the past. She’s able to use the grammar pattern in sentences correctly, but I hope she’ll be able to use them in conversation as well. When writing, it is very helpful to use adjectives in making creative sentences. I encourage Jimin to use more adjectives in the future to improve her sentences and make them more interesting. Keep up the great work, Jimin!
It is highly recommended for Jimin to read more stories with moral lesson or articles in English. She should practice speaking and constructing sentences by telling things that happened in her day and her plans for the next day. She should also try to focus a bit more on the lesson and continue to volunteer to share her ideas in class. She should use the newly learned words in sentences to remember their usage easily, and don't hesitate to ask questions about any unfamiliar word.
The future goal that I’ve set for her this month of January is for Jimin to work on speaking with more confidence and using polite expressions when speaking. I strongly encourage her to engage in conversation in every lesson and use more new vocabulary words and participate in speaking exercises so that she will make steady progress in improving her English communication skills. At the end of this month, Jimin will also learn how to use adjectives in her sentences and make detailed sentences on her own to describe someone or something.
