It’s been a pleasure teaching Ha Eun this month. Ha Eun always tries her best to make good sentences. When she is not understood at first, she will continue to make efforts to make herself clear. She won’t give up and she even takes note of my advice and applies them on her sentences. Keep up the good attitude, Ha Eun!
READING AND COMPREHENSION:
Ha Eun’s reading skill is in the Approaching Proficiency level. Ha Eun has improved a lot when it comes to her reading and comprehension skills. She is now learning to decode the meaning of the words based on the picture, and she can answer the vocabulary exercises on the book on her own. I encourage her to read the passage again when answering the comprehension questions to avoid making mistakes.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Ha Eun’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered in the Approaching Proficiency level. Ha Eun is now more open in conversation and is often willing to share things that happened in her day. One area of improvement is her speaking voice and pronunciation. Ha Eun has a shy and quiet personality, and whenever she tries to speak up in class she often hesitates which makes her voice sound like she’s mumbling. I encourage Ha Eun to speak with a louder volume so that she can be heard clearly when she speaks.
Ha Eun’s grammatical skill is in the Approaching Proficiency level. In vocabulary class, she is always eager to try to make sentences with the new words learned and usually uses it correctly. She catches on quickly to new concepts and is very good at repeating vocabulary words and sentences. Keep up the good work, Ha Eun!
It is highly recommended for Ha Eun to continue reading English materials to boost her comprehension and vocabulary. She would also benefit from listening to preschool English leaning videos such as the one from this YouTube channel “Wow English TV”. To help her continue to build her vocabulary and refine her grammar, I recommend listening to children’s story Audiobooks on this website “storynory.com”. The accent in this website and the YouTube channel is British English but it is very clear and it will help her a lot if she could find time to watch and listen at least 15 minutes a day.
The future goal I’ve set for Ha Eun this month of January is for her to constantly improve her vocabulary, speaking, reading, and comprehension skills. By the end of this month, she will be able to develop her listening comprehension skills as well as reading comprehension skills by consistently doing exercises each week. We will also work on her confidence in speaking by doing more speaking exercises like role playing and dialogue exercises.
