It’s been a pleasure teaching Su Bin this month. Su Bin is a great student to have in class. She participates well in conversation and she gives her opinions based on topics freely. She contributes greatly by giving answers that open another question which helps the topic to keep going. Keep up the great attitude, Su Bin!
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Su bin’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered in Proficient level. Su Bin has expressed great interest in improving her speaking skills this month. She prefers to have speaking exercises rather than reading articles these days. She speaks confidently in conversation and with time and practice, I believe her speaking will become more automatic and natural. Keep up the good work, Su Bin!
Su Bin’s grammatical skill is in Above Approaching Proficiency level. Su Bin has continued to improve her grammar skills. During speaking exercises, she tends to use full sentences all the time which helped her increase her fluency. Her use of intermediate words in her sentences to make it more interesting is impressive for her level. However, as she becomes more comfortable with speaking, she sometimes misses on the basic rules of tenses like the past and future. I encourage her to organize her thoughts first before speaking to avoid these mistakes. Nevertheless, Su Bin has shown a lot of improvement compared to the previous months. Keep it up, Su Bin!
It is highly recommended for Su Bin to continue reading English materials to boost her comprehension and vocabulary. She could also benefit from getting used to taking note of the main idea in a paragraph so that no matter how long it is, she will be able to comprehend its message. To help her continue to build her vocabulary and refine her grammar, I still recommend reading appropriately leveled chapter books at home and keep a record of new words she learns and reads. It is also recommended that the student try to cite her personal experiences as an example when stating her opinion.
The future goal I’ve set for Su Bin 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 analyze a paragraph with ease by finding the main idea. She will also learn to use ten new vocabulary words in a sentence with ease.
