  14. My improvemen area is the speaking.
    I need more practice, when a speak, I feel nervous.
    The vocabulary is other problem, because, I need to know new words.
    I am persisten and I never to do to give up.

  15. My areas of improvement are speaking, listening, pronunciation and content. I think i need to practice more in all but especially on those mentioned previously.
    My solutions are to introduce more content in my conversations because i don´t produce very much when i speak. I have some bilingual cousins so i´m going to practice with them, also i´m going to study for half an hour each day when i arrive to my house after classes. This is a good advice to learn english.

  16. My areas of improvement are speaking and writting.
    In case of speaking, is because when I talk to someone, I feel that I can give more of my knowledge, opnion or whatever we´re talking, so I think that I need to have more confidence in myself.
    On the other hand, I have the writing problem. I don´t think is in content, structure or lack of ideas because i´m a little good in that. Sometimes I forget how to write words, simple words… and is exhausting be looking words in the dictionary that I know how to pronounce or what the meaning is, just because I don´t know how to write.
    For my first improvement, my plan is to talk with a friend that is studying english, everytime we can… by messages, phone calls, skype or even social networks and help each other when we make a mistake. For the second one, try to listen english songs, movies, tv shows and when I listen to words that are difficult to me to write, put them in a list on my phone (because my phone is like my hair… I carry it everywhere) and be aware to see it everyday to keep them in my mind. it´s difficult but not imposible.

  17. My areas of improvement are listening and speaking, content an vocabulary in specific.
    my remedial plans will be listening to music and practice Englis at home with my husbund, because he has a really good English.

  25. Well, my areas of improvement are speaking, listening and grammar because of the structure.
    I get nervious when I’m trying to talk.
    Listening is the other area because sometimes I loose the track of the words or because I don’t understand, and the last thing is grammar because I tend to translate everything from Spanish to English, and then if I want to say something I can’t because I make confusing sentences and at the end I can’t speak.
