Sarah is an intelligent student. I never had a hard time teaching her. She's also very polite and jolly. She smiles all the time. She makes the class easy and lively. She's also honest. Sometimes, when she's having a hard time or when she's confused, she tells her teacher right away. In addition, she's a hardworking and diligent student.
Sarah’s reading skill can be considered as Above Approaching Proficiency. This is because she reads really well with proper intonation and pronunciation of words. She reads the words clearly and loudly. Although there are still some mispronounced words which are unfamiliar to the student. She will ask the teacher or search about it in her dictionary. She's always ready to be corrected and learn new words.
Sarah’s comprehension skill can be considered as Above Approaching Proficiency. This is because her teacher doesn’t need to repeat the same instruction and questions twice whenever they’re having lessons. The student can also immediately understand the main idea of the passage that she has read. She can easily and quickly answer some questions about the lesson as well. She also doesn't need much guidance from her teacher to do some activities.
SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION:
Sarah’s speaking and pronunciation skills can be considered as Proficient. This is because she can express and share her thoughts using the English language. She pronounces words clearly and in proper tone. However, there are some new words that she finds it hard to pronounce. But I'm certain that she can be a very good speaker someday with just a little guidance.
Her teacher is encouraging her to practice reading during her free time to widen her knowledge of English words. She has to listen some English songs and watch English movies to enhance her pronunciation of words. Lastly, she has to continue using English language when conversing with other people. It will help her to be fluent in speaking English language.
Her teacher will still be introducing more conversational English and idiomatic expressions during class to enhance the student’s speaking skills.
