This student is working very hard at improving her English in order to pass a variety of
entrance exams for private schools. She is working on listening, reading, writing and
This week she is working with her teacher on reading and understanding skills. She read
an article about New Zealand and was asked to write a summary for each paragraph
that she read. She did a great job reading out loud and understanding the essay.
Through reading she was able to pick out words she didn`t know and expand her
vocabulary this way. She then learned how to use them in sentences.
Another core part of her learning this week was new vocabulary. She is working off a list
of new vocabulary words and is studying very hard and learning to understand new
vocabulary and then create her own sentences, demonstrating her knowledge of the
word. She is off to a great start!
