Teacher's Comments
Samantha es sociable y curiosa. Se mantiene atenta a las explicaciones de la profesora y pregunta cuando algo no le ha quedado claro, mostrando su interés por aprender. Ha estado aprendiendo acerca de las expresiones de tiempo, las conjugaciones de los verbos en pasado y presente, y acerca de la manera en la que se deben responder las preguntas en inglés. Al practicar conversaciones no solo pregunta de manera cortante, sino que a la vez se enfoca en conocer a la profesora. Necesita trabajar la gramática (conjugaciones de los verbos), junto a las preguntas afirmativas y negativas. Al hacer esto estaría fortaleciendo sus conocimientos en el idioma y garantizando que pueda comunicarse de manera correcta. Recomiendo que realice ejercicios relacionados a gramática, así como completar diálogos que incluyan preguntas. Durante nuestras clases, Samantha siempre se muestra interesada tanto en aprender cosas nuevas como en mantener una buena relación con la profesora. Es un placer tenerla como mi estudiante. ¡Felicidades!
