In my last post I said I would share what my student had written for this blog so here it is:
Hello! My name is Atsuki, I’m a first year university student. I joined this English class from March 2014. I think I’m one of the oldest student in this class.
I learn a lot of things from Carmelia and I improve my English skills (reading, listening, speaking and so on). When I was junior high school student, I was shy and I didn’t have the courage to speak in English. In English class, Carmelia spoke to me a lot and I’m getting better at speaking in English.
If I had not met Carmelia, I would still be shy. In the future, I want to be able to use English more fluently so I study English more!
I asked Atsuki to write something about her, and I also told her to write about what she thinks about the class because this is a blog for the school. But I didn’t expect her to write more about the class and not so much about her so I’d like to write a little bit more about her.
Atsuki has been my student for a few years and I don’t think she’s shy at all. Haha! She has never had any problem speaking out because she isn’t afraid of making mistakes. Now she’s more careful with her sentences, but she still doesn’t hesitate when she speaks in English. It’s possible that she’s just comfortable speaking to me because we’ve known each other for years; but even though she is shy, I think she’s got the right attitude to keep learning a language and I hope she’ll keep getting better!
